The Marcos de Niza Choir, Drama, and Dance Parents and Friends (MDN-CDP) is a non-profit 501©3 organization that serves to support and promote the MdN High School Choir, Drama and Dance programs. We assist the Choral Director, Drama Director, Dance Director, and the school staff and administration in providing the students with one of the best high school performing arts educations in the state.

While we work hard to support our students and these programs, we also like to have a great time in the process. If you are interested in joining the group or simply becoming a friend we would love to have you take part in any capacity. Feel free to browse the website or reach out if you would like more information.

We look foward to getting to know you this year!
