STUDIO POLICIES & TUITION
[Information in this section has been updated January 2023]
Please read over carefully our studio policies, required dress code, and tuition chart before booking a trial class or enrolling into one of our classes.
Our dress code policy for the 2022-2023 Season is strictly enforced. Required shoes and proper attire is mandatory to participate in classes.
WHY DO WE REQUIRE DRESS CODE?
Here at MDA, we believe that our dress code policy promotes a more serious classroom atmosphere which emphasizes better concentration, and good behavior. We value that each of our students feel no peer pressure associated with trends or appearance.
Hip Hop Classes – All students enrolled in any of our hip hop classes will be required to wear the following: Colored class t-shirt (each class/level has their own color code), black bottoms in the form of sweats, leggings, or shorts, along with black high top or low top shoe with the white rubber soles. Shoes can be purchased through our store (see home page). T-shirts are ordered directly with the studio. All students in Mini Moves HIP HOP Classes are required to wear black laceless (slip-on or velcro is acceptable) white-soled tennis shoes. Shoes MUST only be worn for dance classes.
Acro Hop Classes – Leotard plus one of the following: tights, shorts, leggings, or Capri pants. A one piece biketard or unitard is also acceptable. All pants should be form-fitting (not baggy) and not touch the floor. Class shirts should be worn over tanks or leotard. We will be on mats most of the class, so Black grip sock will be required over the feet. Please ask instructor for suggestions.
Jazz/Ballet Classes - Black or Lilac leotard, with skin toned tights will be required. Matching tutu or skirt wrap is also recommended. Black ballet shoes also required. Hair must be pulled back away from face at all times, preferably in a bun. Please ask your instructor for further suggestions or information.
Adult Classes - Adults should come to class in dance clothes they can easily move around in and sweat in. Clothes and shoes should be comfortable and water bottles are highly encouraged.

Therefore, any student, parent, or staff member involved or making any threat (verbally or physically), will be handled and/or resolved by our Director, and may result in refusal of any MDA services. or immediate dismissal of the studio.
