The tuition year is from September 5, 2017 through June 8, 2018. Registration is not complete until you have submitted the registration materials/enrolled online, paid the non-refundable deposit ($200) and Registration Fee ($55), and selected your payment plan. Tuition is payable in full at the time of registration with a check, credit/debit card, or eCheck. If not paid in full at registration, automatic installment payments must be set-up with a credit/debit card or eCheck (online only). Installment payments cannot be canceled after the first two (2) weeks of your child’s enrollment. Installment payments can be made in person with cash prior to the scheduled due date.



You are responsible for the full tuition for the entire school-year for which you register your child, unless withdrawn within the first two (2) weeks of her/his enrollment. Withdrawals must be made thru email or in writing prior to the start of classes or during the two (2) week withdrawal period. Prior to and during the first two (2) weeks from the beginning of enrollment, all amounts paid for tuition are refundable minus the non-refundable deposit ($200) and any fees (including the registration fee, late fees and returned check fees).

After the first two (2) weeks of your child’s classes, you are responsible for the entire tuition balance whether or not your child continues to attend MYB during any remaining portion of her/his enrollment. All amounts paid or required to be paid for tuition and fees are then considered non-refundable and non-cancelable.



We truly expect your child to attend each and every scheduled class. Because we limit the number of children in a class we are hopeful that everyone will honor their commitment and complete the entire year. We ask that you call if you are going to be late or absent. Please be aware that if your child is more than 10 minutes late to class, the teacher will use his/her discretion to have your child observe class for safety reason.



Lessons that are missed due to illness or other unforeseen circumstances can be made up at a later date in another class of the same or lower level. Please call or email the office to schedule all make-up classes. Upon arrival for the make-up class, you must sign in at the front office.



In the event of inclement weather, parents and students are responsible for checking for changes to the MYB schedule which will be posted on our office voice mail, our website, on our Facebook page, and on Twitter, at the following times:

7:00 am: For classes that begin between 8:30am-3:00pm
2:00 pm: For classes that begin at 4:00pm or later.

If the Federal government closes, MYB will also close.



We have several students with life-threatening allergies. Please do not bring any peanut products to the studios.



Please use only the designated dressing room for your child’s class. Fathers may not enter the children’s dressing rooms or the area outside the dressing room. This is a privacy policy put in place by MYB. If possible, please try to have your child dressed for class with a cover-up, before arriving at the studio.



MYB does not permit taking photos or videotaping thru the doorways during class time.



Cell phones should be turned-off and may not be used or looked-at during class, at any time. If a student is expecting an urgent call, she/he should let the teacher know and have the call come through the front office at 301-608-2232 and staff will advise the student so that she/he may leave class to check her/his cellphone in the hallway
