How much are your classes?
Classes range from $75-255 per semester depending on the class. Specific pricing information can be found in your customer portal or by calling 240-357-0699. Payment plans are available.
How are your classes setup?
At MCCA, we run two semesters per year that are generally 17 weeks long each depending on the calendar. The Spring semester usually runs from January through May and the Fall semester runs August through December. Each semester culminates with a showcase performance. We also offer summer camps and programs June through August.
Do you require costumes?
No, we do not require costumes. We allow the students to have some artistic license in selecting their outfits for the showcase performances.
We charge a non-refundable $25 registration fee per student per semester. That fee secures the student’s spot in class, covers the access to the customer portal, student security profile, door access key fob, etc.
How do you handle weather cancellations?
We closely follow the local government and school system cancellations. We also monitor local road conditions any time there is inclement weather. Cancellation information can be found on our Facebook Page or by signing up for text alerts. As always, we encourage parents to use their own discretion when the weather is not favorable.
Why does it say Waitlist beside the class I'm interested in and what are my options?
Waitlist means that the class is currently at max capacity. You can add your student to the waitlist in the event that a space opens up. You can look for an alternate class. In some cases there are multiple instances of the same class due to the number of students interested in that particular class. You can also reach out to us via phone (240-357-0699) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see if there are alternative options.
The MCCA family, including its staff and students, has truly become an extended family for all of us. Our daughters have received much more than technical lessons in voice, dance, piano and acting. They have developed poise and self-confidence and grown in relationships with others in a safe and supportive environment.
MCAA is not a performing arts center, it is a home. The experiences my daughter has received as a student at MCAA is exceptional. Coty reaches the “whole” child by building talents in the arts, along with developing a strong, confident foundation that will continue to make my daughter successful into college and her future career.
We came into the MCCA family last year as my daughter was transitioning from another studio. We attended an open house before we registered and that feeling that I wish that you could experience simply by walking into a space is the reason that my fourteen year old cried when we got into the car. She said, “I feel like I’m home.” Coty and the wonderful tribe of souls at MCCA have forever changed my daughter.
