Michelle stands on the belief that there is a dance class for any child, any level, and any age that wishes to participate in the arts. Michelle has retained a professional, caring staff that will be enthusiastic and positive role models for the students. We invite you to drop by the studio, Michelle's Academy of Dance and Performing Arts Center, affectionately called MADPAC, to observe the classes, check out the facility, and preview all the programs in progress. The facility is located block off East Grand River on Appian Way Drive. Our street is located directly across from Brighton Chrysler, turn when you see the big red sign A & H Transmission Company. Opened in the summer of 2004, the fulfillment of a lifelong dream of Michelle's after working and training in the industry worldwide, Michelle's Academy of Dance and Performing Arts Center, owned by choreographer and Artistic Director Michelle Marzejon, has seen tremendous growth in the community. The summer of 2005 Michelle expanded the studio for her students by adding a 2400 square foot performing room with a Marley sprung floor, an additional multi purpose classroom and offices. Add this to the three existing dance rooms with hardwood sprung floors the facility boasts more than 6000 square feet of dance space alone! A specially designed classroom for the 3-5 year olds has one way glass viewing. The lobby walls and hallways hold trophies and plaques from Competitive Dance Company and student accolades adorn the bulletin boards and doors. In addition to fall and summer programs and camps, MADPAC offers Master Classes taught by industry professionals several times during the year. The artists and choreographers come from varied backgrounds in the entertainment world and offer students the opportunity to experience a feel for the professional atmosphere of both the east and west coasts without leaving Michigan! For students wishing to continue their dance education beyond high school, Michelle and her staff councils both students and parents so they are better prepared for dance outside the Livingston County community. Michelle has also opened her doors to Master Myers of Karate Kids and the studio is also the rehearsal home for The Michigan Dance Project, a not- for- profit contemporary dance company directed by Kathy King. Celebrating her 5th Year Anniversary in June 2009, Michelle is proud that her studio was voted second best in Livingston County in the Press & Argus Peoples Choice Awards for 2006, 2007, and 2008 with her business so young! She will strive for the number one spot in 2009 and in the future with your help and encouragement!
