Amid the uncertainties of the pandemic, we’ve made the difficult decision not to offer fall academy classes and camps at this time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Frequently Asked Questions

What kind of discounts are available?

When 4 or more classes are being taken in a semester, a discount of 10% will be given on the total tuition. When you register within the “Early Registration” period and pay in full a discount of 5% will be given on total tuition.

Where can I park my car?

All parking is on the street or in the municipal parking lot between Market and Church streets. The lots adjacent to our driveway are private and off limits. See the MAPA Parking Policy.

Can I start attending classes, fill out my form, and pay later?

NO. Teachers are instructed to turn away any student not listed on their roster unless that student wishes to purchase a single class or has been notified by a MAPA staff member.

Do I have to fill a registration form if I’ve done this before?

If your child is a returning student you may complete the “Returning Student Registration Form”. Each semester the form constitutes a contract between a student (parent/guardian) and MAPA, therefore a parent/guardians signature is required. If your contact information has changed since last completing a detailed registration form please submit a Contact Information Change Form to the office with your updated information

How can I pay?

Drop by the office and pay by cash, check or credit card, mail in your form with your check or credit card number, or fax the form to us with your credit card number.

Are scholarships available?

Yes. Information and applications are available on our scholarships page. Deadline to apply for the current semester is posted in our website, office and studios.

Can I register the day classes start?

Absolutely! Just stop by our office at 2050 Main Street in Wailuku during business hours Mon Tues Thurs Fri 10am-5pm, Wed 1pm-5pm to fill out a registration form and pay.

What if I can’t register before the class I want to attend?

No problem! Along with the appropriate payment, fill out a single class form and give it to the teacher. To continue the season at a reduced rate, register at the office during normal business hours and your single class payment will be deducted from your total tuition. Closed classes will not accept single class students.

Can I register at the studio the week classes begin?

NO. All registration is handled in our business office in person, by mail or by fax to utilize our staff and resources more efficiently.

What if I’m not sure what class my child should be taking?

Our Dance Director, Kathleen Schulz, is always happy to answer any questions pertaining to dance and dance placement. She can be reached on 808-283-0375.
