MHDC is committed to creating well-rounded dancers by way of community service. We believe to create strong human beings, we cannot only teach through physical strength, but strength in the form of giving. We are dedicated to helping in the community through different fundraising events and in a variety of charities. MHDC has donated to Make- A- Wish Foundation, Relay for Life for American Cancer Society, American Heart Society, Second Harvest Food Bank, and many more. If you or your dancer would like to sponsor a community service endeavor, please contact MHDC.

8th Annual Second Harvest Food Drive
We are so excited to start our 8th annual Food Drive for Second Harvest Food Bank. We HIGHLY encourage our dancers to ask neighbors and family for donations. By going out and finding donations, we teach our children how to work to give back by working for those donations instead of spending money to donate at the store. We also ask dancers to let us know how many items they bring in. The dancer who brings in the most non-perishable food items will get to attend the Charlotte Ballet Nutcracker with Miss Whitleigh on December 21, 2019 at 2pm, as well as lunch with Miss Whitleigh at the dancer's restaurant of choice. Food Drive is November 1- December 15.
