Frequently Asked Questions

Common Questions

Find answer to frequently asked questions below!
We only had 3 classes this month. Why did we pay the full tuition?

MJDA Dance Program tuition is a yearly charge. It is not calculated by how many classes are scheduled per month. You have the option to pay your tuition in full for the year or we can prorate the yearly tuition over the 10 month school year session. (August – May)

I paid the registration fee last school year. Do I need to pay the fee again?
Yes. This is a yearly fee for all new and returning students.
Does MJDA offer discounts?
Yes we do. 10% off when yearly tuition is paid in full at the start of a session. (Fall Session through Spring Session). We also offer 10% sibling discount and multiple class discounts. Also ask about our Kiddie Package and Dance Major Package Deals!
