MSDI has several training sessions throughout the year.

In 2023 the Tap Fest is September 22nd through 24th, 2023. The length on class times is based on age and technical skill levels of each child.
Metropolitan School of Dance, Incorporated (MSDI) is dedicated to enabling students of every socio-economic background the excitement of personal accomplishment through dance. Our program lends attention to building positive self-esteem, discipline, determination, self-worth and focus through dance. The process of training at MSDI adds to participants academic abilities through math, articulation or vocabulary and problem solving. Our program in short: “Building character, through the art of and inclusion in Dance”.
Through affordable programming, our demand is for sound technical training for all students. Training for each participants includes several genres in dance. MSDI trains in ballet, tap, modern, jazz, African, Pointe', Hip-Hop, Salsa and Drumming. If anyone desires to dance, they can do that at MSDI. But note that we are not a place of recreation. This is dance, and dance in its most technical form. No, we are not a school of competition. Our program systematically begins teaching each student just as they are and builds on their ability to advance in skills in both classical and cultural dance styles. The very same student who trains at MSDI is the same that feed into professional companies, institutions of higher learning and win scholarships to other dance companies throughout the nation. We do not conduct classes for the sake of performing in pretty costumes to wow an audience. The process of training in dance is focusing on proper technique without injury and one that reinforces creative movement and expression commensurate with age, growth, development and ability.
