When enrolling for the school year, there is a $35 non-refundable registration fee.
MBA accepts Checks, Cash, Debit and all major Credit Cards.
(Note: Credit Card transactions will be charged a 3.75% convenience fee)
All payments are due on or before their due dates. If payments are not received by the due date, after a 7-day grace period, a $35 late fee will be charged. If payment is not received after 7 business days, the student will not be allowed to take class until tuition is paid.
Tuition is based on the number of hours students sign up to take each week. MBA does not currently offer automatic payments, so it is the responsibility of the Parent/Guardian to make sure payments are made on time. After 30 days of non-payment, the studio will bill a $35 per week late fee until any balance is paid.
If, due to the state of affairs in the state/world, Master Ballet Academy’s classes need to go online/Zoom, tuition will be the same amount unless otherwise determined by the Directors. All tuition will remain non-refundable.
Performances, Studio Rentals and Master Classes:
Participation in The Nutcracker and Spring Performance is not included in tuition. In addition, Summer Intensive classes, Master Classes, Private Lessons and anything besides the scheduled classes for each level are not included in tuition. Furthermore, Partnering classes and the Pre-Professional Program have separate tuition/fees.

Competitions are not required, but students may wish to have a faculty member as their coach. If your student is doing a competition, regardless of location, and wishes to have a faculty member as a coach with them on site, all accommodations (travel expenses, per diem and hotel) must be paid by the student's parents/guardians for the Instructor(s) who will be attending competitions with your child in addition to a coaching fee. In order to register for a competition under the Master Ballet Academy name, students must have the Director's approval. If not, they will still pay to compete, but they will do so as an individual competitor.
MBA's goal is to offer the best in dance education to their students. Performing is an integral part of this process. Therefore, by registering your student, you agree to have them participate in the Spring Performance show (as long as we are able to have a show based on the current state of affairs in our country/state.) If you do not want them to perform, you will need to let the directors know and have their approval by Jan 4th. The fees for the performance cover the cost of the instruction for the piece, costume rentals, costume fittings and other instruction as deemed necessary by the instructors. Fee will be announced by January, though it is typically $250-$300 Parent/Guardian initials: ______
Students are expected to be on time and respectful to their instructors, employees, guests and each other. They are expected to focus on their hard work during class and have a positive attitude. Disrupting classes is not only rude to the instructor, it interferes with proper learning for everyone in class and may cause injuries. If any student is disrupting class in anyway, there will be a verbal warning. If the disruption continues, the student will be asked to leave class and a meeting with the parent/guardian will be scheduled. If disruptive behavior persists, the student may be asked to leave the studio.

Students will be placed in levels according to their age and ability by the directors.
Regular attendance is important for the learning process. Students are expected to attend every class for which they are enrolled and should arrive 5-10 minutes early to prepare for class; this is important for proper warm-up and stretching. Students consistently late or skipping class may be prone to injuries. Consistent attendance will be a factor in level placement throughout the season. Depending on the class and the instructor's discretion, students may not be admitted to class if more than ten minutes late. If late, students should not enter the class in the middle of a combination. Please wait until the music is off to enter the studio. Regular attendance to all classes a student is signed up for is important to their continued success with MBA.

We do not offer make up classes. All Master Ballet Academy tuition and fees are nonrefundable.
