Drop-In Class Option
BBT at MCI is now offering a “Drop-in Class” option. Dancers interested in this option must register for “Drop-in Class” option. Forms will be available during the registration period in the fall or from MCI's Business Office.
The fee for drop-in classes are as follows:
Level 2 Technique Class: $20 per class
Level 3 Technique Class: $25 per class
Technique / Character Combination: $35 per class
Dancers interested in this option can:
Prepay for a specific number of drop-in classes when you register, or
Pay with cash or check at the beginning of your drop-in class. Those who choose to pay at the beginning of class will have to remain outside the studio until they make their payment.
Please Note: “Drop-in Class option” participants will NOT be able to participate in any performances – including school performances, The Nutcracker or the spring performance. This option simply does not allow enough training or preparation for performances. If a student starts out with the Full Program Option and changes to the Drop-in Option during the year (September through May), he/she will no longer be eligible for any performances, even if he/she begins the full program again.
New students must audition to determine placement. The audition fee is $30 and includes a full evaluation by Artistic Director Natalya Getman. To schedule an audition, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
