  I'd create ConnectionFactory class, although feel free to ignore me, 
just thinking off the top of my head! :-)

public class ConnectionFactory
     private static MySqlConnection _connection;
     public MySqlConnection GetConnection()
         if (_connection == null)
             _connection = new MySqlConnection();
         return _connection;
