2021/2022 Recital - Parent Handbook
2021/2022 Recital - Volunteer Information
MIDA (Macdonald Island Dance Academy) is no longer offering dance programming at MacDonald Island Park effective the end of the 2021/2022 dance season.
The Regional Recreation Corporation of Wood Buffalo (RRC), operator of MacDonald Island Park, is committed to supporting performing arts both at MacDonald Island and throughout the community.
In an exploratory process, the space at MacDonald Island Park dedicated to dance programming was issued as a public RFP in March 2022 and posted on Alberta Purchasing Connection in accordance with RRC policy. A successful proposal has been accepted for the lease of this space. The RRC has entered an agreement in principle with YMM Dance Company to lease the space at MacDonald Island Park, meaning that access to quality recreational and competitive dance at MacDonald Island will continue.
MacDonald Island Park is deeply grateful for the support the community has shown for the MIDA program over the years, and are proud of all the dancers who came through the doors whether to dance for the first time or as accomplished competitive dancers.
