Due to the threat of severe weather we are closing today at 6:30. Please be safe.


March 31, 2:00 p.m. Update:

We are monitoring the weather closely to determine if it will be necessary to cancel classes today. At this point, we will have classes as usual as the weather updates are still "conditional." If weather updates indicate there will be imminent threat of severe weather in our area causing us to cancel classes, we will send out emails, post on Facebook, and our website. If your dancer has classes today, please watch for updates. It is a very important rehearsal day for our competition teams going into the weekend competition, but as always, safety is our top priority!

We will be closed again Tuesday, February 23,2016 due to threat of severe weather. We follow Tuscaloosa County closings. They are closing after school programs so we are closing as well. We are looking at our calendar to determine a date that we can schedule a make up day for classes. We will notify you when it is finalized. Please stay safe!

MJ's will be closed Tuesday, February 2, 2016 due to threat of severe weather. We follow Tuscaloosa County closings. They are closing after school programs so we are closing as well.

TUESDAY, APRIL 29: Sorry folks, but here we go again. We must close the studio again today because of the threat of yet more bad weather. I know this is sounding like a broken record at this point (or maybe I should say CD now). Of course this also means more changes in the schedule for the upcoming days.

Everyone please stay safe AGAIN!!!

Homecoming Parade - Saturday, October 8

Where to Meet: Behind Hudson Poole Jewelers - off Greensboro Ave. between 11th St. and 12th St.
For those who need to use a GPS, Hudson Poole's address is: 1111 Greensboro Ave.Tuscaloosa,35401
What time: 11:30(at the latest)
What to wear: Red MJ's shirt, black pants, tennis shoes
How to wear hair: PONYTAIL with Houndstooth ribbon (we will provide)
Where to pickup your child: Devotie Dr. (Next to the Biology Building). This is different than all past years. We may not be able to put our little ones out at the end of the parade because of where we have to end this year. It is quite a walk. There is a map in the studio of the parade route.

All Pre-K students MUST have an adult with them!!! If your child is NOT PRE-K, we do not need you to walk! If we have too many parents, it takes away from or students being seen. PLEASE meet us at the end of the parade immediately after we pass you at the Quad. Please park around the campus, near Hackberry Lane, Devotie Drive, or the soccer field so that you will be close to the end of the parade and can meet us IMMEDIATELY after the parade to pick up your child. They get upset if they don't see you when we finish! We very much appreciate this!

Late order shirts and shirts that were not be picked up will be given out before the parade when we meet behind Hudson Poole. Thank you for your participation and cooperation!!
