About Metropolitan Dance Alliance

Our Mission

Metropolitan Dance Alliance's mission is to build versatile, well-rounded dancers, while building the self-esteem and confidence of each individual. Years of study and dedication have given us the experience needed to become the professionals we are today. Our goal is to continue building a foundation for our dancers so they will have the ability to succeed in dance as well as life.

Metropolitan Dance Alliance Facilities

You will feel comfortable in our 6,500-square-foot facilities, equipped with three dance studios, hardwood floors, and lounge area with television, friendly staff, and atmosphere. We are centrally located to the Shakopee, Chaska, Prior Lake, Savage, Carver, Eden Prairie, Jordan, and Belle Plaine communities. We are located at the corner of highways 69 and 169 in the Shakopee Town Square Mall.


The majority of our communication will be via email. Please make sure you keep a current email address on file with us.


At the end of each dance season, Metropolitan Dance Alliance holds a fully staged professional dance recital. It's always an exciting event for our dancers! 


A professional photographer comes in once a year to take dance pictures of your dancer and their class in full costume. These pictures are optional, but they are a great way to have a memory of your year and class here at Metropolitan Dance Alliance.


For your convenience, we do offer basic dance needs for class, such as tights and shoes. 

Classroom Policy

We ask that parents do not come into the classrooms when classes are in session as it can be distracting to the dancers. Please use the viewing windows to observe classes. We also request that young dancers use the restroom before class starts. We appreciate your punctuality in starting class on time, please arrive early enough to be dressed with shoes on ready to dance five minutes prior to the start of class.

Student Safety

Parents, please be on time when picking up your children. We also ask that you do not allow your children to run in the studio, climb couches, tables, chairs, or enter unoccupied dance studios. We want to provide a safe environment for everyone. We invite you to enjoy our sibling play area where we have toys and cartoons. We ask that you please pick up after your children. Children who are not in classes must be supervised by an adult.

Food and Studio Cleanliness

Please keep all food/snack in the mall atrium. We also ask that you remove any wet or dirty shoes at the entrance. Thank you for helping us keep our dance environment clean.

Cancellation Policy

We require a two-week written notice for a class cancellation.

Inclement weather

In the event of inclement weather, if a studio closing is required, we will leave a message on the studio voicemail. We will also make every effort to email this notification to you. There are no refunds or make-up classes for studio closing due to weather conditions. Closings due to inclement weather will show on Channel 9, FOX News.
