Over the past few years, we have made every effort to maintain our dance class rates stable. However, due to rising operating expenses and on-going financial recovery in the aftermath of the pandemic, we find it necessary to adjust our rates to ensure that we can continue providing high-quality dance and fitness classes to our vibrant community.
We want to assure you that we remain committed to offering exceptional dance programs and maintaining our commitment to affordability. We understand the value of providing opportunities for students to pursue their passion for dance, and we have put measures in place to ensure continued accessibility for all.
To this end, we will continue to provide subsidy programs to help mitigate the impact of the rate adjustment including our Harkness Center Healthy Dance Initiative and MMDG Adult Subsidy program.
The Mark Morris Dance Center is committed to upholding its core values of Community, Access, Artistic Excellence and Creativity. To ensure access to excellent dance education for the entire community, tiered pricing options, in collaboration with our subsidy programs (Adult Subsidy and Harkness Healthy Dance Initiative), allow us to take collective action to reduce financial barriers that have traditionally prevented some students from participating. While they are more accessible rates, payments made Tier 1 and Tier 2 do not cover the actual costs of class. As a non-profit organization, Mark Morris Dance Group subsidizes costs that are not met by Tier 1 and 2 payment options to continue to offer these options for students at those income levels. In order to continue to offer our programs with support staff, live music, and in our state of the art facilities, students who are able can support us and our community by selecting the Tier 3 pricing option. Tiered tuition is run on an honor system; we do not request or examine financial records of any individual. The information above is provided as a guide to help determine which pricing tier you most likely fall under. We recognize there may be situations in which this guide is not applicable.
