MCDCP (Most Caring Devoted Cheerful Parents )
Dance requires time commitment as well as a financial commitment. Competitive dance opens a world of art, expression, life skills, and discipline…. as well as your wallets. We understand that the financial commitments associated with the competitive dancer can be overwhelming at times. We believe that behind every great dancer is a great dance parent that sacrifices to give the gift of dance to their child or children. StarFire PRO has developed a fundraising organization open to all parents of Company dancers, parents, to help with the financial obligations and commitments associated with being a part of a competitive dance company. MCDCP (Most Caring Devoted Cheerful Parents ) is an organization that allows you to choose what fundraising options you would like to participate in to help lessen or completely cover the costs of dance!!! Both groups and independent fundraising options are available to you. Now, you can have the option to help make the personal expense of your child’s competitive dance training be more affordable without choosing between your wallet and the incredible gift of dance.

PRO Sporting Events:
Each year MCDC participates in Performances with The Texas Legends, WNBA Dallas Wings, NBA, or NFL events. We are required to sell a certain number of tickets.

Event tickets will be placed early on your account to pre-pay via our Cash App $StarFireP so that we are ready prior to game days. Fees are Due to the deadlines NO exception. This will help plan early before the events come up so no worries before the event! All game day ticket fees are due 30 days prior to the event.
MCDC Season Uniforms and equipment $1200. You may pay in full or divide over 3 months. The breakdown is $ 400. This you may pay out on your personal portal once you setup your account. It’s a one-time investment as we use uniforms year to year as they are available each year. Should get behind your child may not participate in certain shows due to no uniform. The only time I’ve seen anyone have to buy a new costume is if it gets damaged, or as your child grows. All Solo, Duo and or Trio costumes are added into your account individually. Special solo, duet, trio, or production costume price may vary depending on custom detail or custom design. Costumes may be eligible for special awards at the competition.
