Students will be placed in levels according to their age and ability. Placement is at the discretion of the Faculty and subject to change by the Directors at anytime.
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.

Parent/Guardian Guidelines: Parents, guardians and family members are welcome inside the main lobby. They are not permitted to watch class or private lessons without the approval of the teachers. Doorways need to be kept free of people due to fire safety regulations. In the chance that adults are allowed in studios, shoes are not permitted. Parents are asked to respect the studio rules below and also act as role models for the students. Family members, friends, etc. are not allowed to run around the lobby, make loud noises or other distractive behavior.
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 any way, 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.
Please be mindful of the following policies which will be diligently applied in order to provide optimal pre-professional dance instruction. Following these policies will reduce the noise and distractions within Master Ballet Academy, and will help the students focus and achieve their goals.
No parents or non-dancing children will be permitted to watch class except when invited by an instructor, or the dancer has a private dance lesson and/or partnering class. In these instances the participating family is welcome to observe that lesson with the teacher's prior knowledge.
Please extended respect to your fellow MBA dancers and families by:
1) Observing an appropriate noise level in the lobby area
2) Picking up after ones-self, including drinks, snacks, shoes, etc.
3) Supervising all children in the lobby area at all times. Unsupervised children are prohibited without Director's approval.
Please pick up dancers on time upon completion of classes. Should a parent be running late or encounter an issue with pick-up times, please notify the studio promptly to make arrangements. Please be sure your children obey attire and hair policies. Classes, fees and policies subject to change
Thank you in advance for your adherence to the studio policies and its professional image.
