TUITION PAYMENT POLICY

Tuition must be paid in full prior to July 1, 2019. The credit card provided will be charged for the tuition balance due on July 1, 2019.
Any outstanding balance on your MSA account as of July 1, 2019 (or date of registration if after 7/1/19) from previous sessions or purchases will be due and charged to the payment method provided for the Summer 2019 session. Payment in full of all current and past due charges is required in order to participate in summer programs.
MSA is unable to offer refunds for summer programs or classes once registration is submitted and confirmed.
MSA does not offer refunds or credits for classes/lessons missed due to student absence/non-attendance, inclement weather or similar circumstances.
Schedule is subject to change or cancellation based on enrollment. Students will be contacted one week prior to the beginning of a class, camp or intensive if a change is deemed necessary and a refund will be issued.
CARE OF STUDENTS
MSA operates as a “Come and Go” facility. MSA is not responsible for providing before or after care for students unless the parent has registered them for the appropriate Extended Care Program. Students are not to be left at the school for excessive periods before or after their programs. Students under age 12 requiring early drop off (before 8:45am) or late pick up (after 4:15pm) must register for the extended care program.
Please label all clothes, shoes, bags and other personal belongings with your student’s name and leave expensive electronics, jewelry and other valuables at home. MSA is not responsible for lost or misplaced/missing property
ATTENDANCE & TARDINESS
MSA reserves the right to ask students to observe class when arriving more than 10 minutes late.
STUDIO DRESS ATTIRE
To provide the most professional experience for your children, we ask that students adhere to the dress code. Hair must be worn off the neck and out of the face for all tap and jazz classes. All students must have their hair in a classical ballet bun to participate in ballet class. A $5 bun kit will be provided and charged to the account on file if required. Program-specific dress code information is available online or by request at the front desk.
Please label all clothes, shoes, bags and other personal belongings with your student’s name and leave expensive electronics and other valuables at home. MSA is not responsible for lost or misplaced/missing property.
PHYSICAL CORRECTION POLICY
Dancing is physical skill and in order to help and facilitate the student’s learning the teacher may need to physically guide a movement by touch. Touch promotes kinesthetic learning and can produce a quicker response to correction than other teaching tools.
The MSA staff may take photographs or videos of students, individually or in groups, attending or taking part in classes, programs and events. These photographs or videos may appear in publications, on our website, on social media or in other publicity. Students and/or participants consent to having their photographs and/or videos taken used for such purposes.
MUSIC LESSON TERMS & CONDITIONS
Students are expected to provide their own instruments, supplies (i.e. picks, strings, etc.), with the exception of piano. In these instances it is recommended that a piano is available at home so the student is able to practice. All students are required to provide their own music. Teachers will make recommendations for music purchases.
MSA does not offer refunds. No credits or make-up lessons are offered for missed or cancelled private lessons, unless the cancellation is due to a weather closing or teacher absence. Students are entitled to 1 make-up lesson during the summer session, provided that the school is notified before 12:00 p.m. on the day of the lesson they must miss. Make-up lessons will be scheduled at the discretion of the instructor. In the case of a teacher’s absence, a substitute teacher may be arranged for the lesson(s). All private lessons missed due to MSA closing for a weather related emergency will be either made up or reimbursed in the form of a credit towards the following month’s tuition.
I have read and understand all the above material and agree to comply with MSA’s policies and procedures. I also understand that MSA reserves the right to terminate lessons or classes due to any individual or extenuating circumstances.
