The MPA Board of Directors has unanimously voted to have all 2021 MPA season events take place virtually, with no in-person events. After carefully evaluating many factors — including local health guidelines and in-person event restrictions, director and judge feedback, and facility constraints — the board came to the difficult decision that having an all-virtual season this year is the best option for the health, safety and overall well-being of the MPA community in 2021 and beyond.
We’re excited to share more details about the upcoming virtual season soon and to be able to provide a safe and fulfilling experience for our community in 2021 while looking forward to a bright future for MPA!
MPA is closely monitoring the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) situation and will follow guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, state and county/city health officials, school districts, and venue partners to ensure a safe environment for our performers, instructors, personnel, volunteers and fans.
At this point, there is no change to the remainder of the 2020 MPA season. But we are preparing contingency plans and are ready to act quickly in the best interest of all involved with MPA, should the need arise.
MPA will immediately notify everyone involved if changes to the current schedule for the rest of the season are needed.
