School year is divided into two sessions:
September 10–January 24 and January 25–May 15.
The educational process is based on the annual program, so students (and parents) are obliged to enroll throughout the school year.
Tuition and Fees
This Agreement constitutes an unconditional contractual obligation to pay for the entire course of the 2019-2020 academic year of the MBS. You understand that, relying on its contractual obligation, the MBS, in turn, takes on contractual obligations with respect to teachers and staff, the rental of premises and equipment, as well as the procurement of materials, supplies and other items or services necessary to fulfill the Agreement on enrollment.
Performances and Competitions
MBS follows a No Refund Policy: tuition and fees are non refundable and non transferable. A full refund will be granted if MBS is to cancel the class and a virtual class is not offered. There are no refunds for partially attended sessions. Before registering your child, please make sure the class will fit your schedule and your child wants to dance. Please contact the Director with any questions regarding MBS tuition and policies. Director email: firstname.lastname@example.org
MBS charges a $35 late fee to all payments received after 5th day of the tuition due date. The fee on all returned checks is $35. Failure to make payments on time may prohibit your child from participating in class.
The dress code for each level of ballet is posted on the MBS website.
Attendance and Make-up classes
Please contact Kirill Bak in advance of any absences or tardiness. Good attendance is critical to consistent student progress and advancement. Cancelled classes made by MBS can be made up within the same session, in a class of equal or lower level.
Students should be on time for the beginning of class. Late admittance to class is at the teacher’s discretion. Students that are more than 15 minutes late may be asked to observe class. This is to ensure the students safety and to not disrupt the flow of the class.
If circumstances require you to withdraw from a class or rehearsal, please fill out a “Withdrawal Form” at the front desk.
Classes can be observed at any time thru the viewing windows or on the monitor screens in the waiting room. Parents/Guardians are not allowed into the studio rooms.
In the chance of inclement weather, MBS will cancel class. We follow Eden Prairie School’s guidelines for school and activity cancellations. The safety of our students and their families is most important. In all cases, please use your best judgment. The Director will notify families by email, and will post on MBS Facebook page.
All students must behave in a courteous manner towards each other. Disrespect to any staff member or volunteer, or disruptive behavior of any kind could be grounds for dismissal. Good behavior includes arriving on time, being quiet and attentive at all times, respecting rehearsal studios, not littering, and getting along with fellow dancers. Please also remember: no chewing gum beverages or food may be eaten in the studios. Only light snacks may be eaten in the waiting area.
Student Pick Up
Students must be picked up at the ending time of each class or program. After a 15-minute grace period has passed, a $1 per minute fee will be assessed for late pick up. Young children not enrolled in class should not be left unattended.
Minnesota Ballet School does not discriminate in enrollment on the basis of race, religion, gender, age national origin, or sexual orientation. This is a place of business; students/families must conduct themselves in a quiet, controlled, appropriate manner in all areas of the building. Please turn
off cell phones. Young children should not be left unattended. No running. No meals should not be eaten in studio lobby. It is a very small space, and the smells can be distracting to the dancers, especially when they have very long rehearsal days. Healthy snacks encourage for dancers when long rehearsal days if needed. (energy bars, fruits are OK). Meals for families should be eaten elsewhere. Also, please remember to clean up after eating snacks and drinking beverages.
