Maine Dance Teachers Club became a reality in 1950 to two great teachers, Ellen T. Cooper and the late Evelyn Dyer Clark. Maine dance teachers were contacted and the Club began with monthly meetings at which Maine teachers offered instruction to the teachers attending.
As the Club and attendance grew, the Club moved to the Augusta-Waterville area and continued to hire nationally known teachers such as Gus and Nan Giordano, Lynda Gache, Bob Rizzo, Bill DiRicco, Fred Knecht, and Tom Ralabate.
Because of the great intrest in these meetings and workshops, the Club decided to expand and offer a two day summer workshop held in Bar Harbor. This workshop hired top dance faculties, as well as Maine dance teachers, present material for students, assistant teachers and teachers.
Now.. 60 years later MDTC offers 4 yearly one day of dance workshops and a Teachers Seminar.
