McDonald Dance Academy offers classes in ballet, jazz, hip hop, musical theater, modern and tap, plus special classes, including Yoga and Pilates. Because a dancer needs a strong foundation, Linda McDonald and her staff, all of whom have degrees in dance or have danced professionally, stress proficient use of dance terminology and an understanding of theory, as well as encouraging participation in workshops and public performances. As a result, many McDonald Dance Academy students have won scholarships from Chicago National Association of Dance Masters, and performed in both Joffrey Ballet and Schaumburg’s productions of the “Nutcracker.”
Believing it is important for students to be exposed to many different styles of teaching, Linda McDonald invites many guest teachers and choreographers from several prestigious companies in the Chicago area.
