MCA is pleased to announce new business hours for the Front Office that will commence on August 29, 2022 as the Fall 2022 Semester begins.
Our new Front Office hours are:
Saturday: The MCA building will be open for classes and programs, and the Front Office will be open during those select hours only (hours may vary, depending on programming each given Saturday).
Friday & Sunday: The Front Office and the MCA building are closed unless otherwise specified (such as for a theatre or dance production).
We are making this change to better align our staff capacity with when our building is being heavily used by our community. Our goal is to keep the Front Office sufficiently staffed during class and programming hours to ensure the safety of our students and provide a higher level of service to our community of students, parents, guardians, and the general public.
We have chosen to be closed on Fridays to give our entire staff a breather day and create more time for critical tasks that are difficult to complete when people are enjoying our beautiful, historic building (like moving furniture, theatre items, costumes, or pianos down our narrow hallways!).
Being closed on Fridays also allows us to put resources in place to staff the Front Office for classes, rehearsals, and special events on Saturdays.
We will continue to hold performances, concerts, and select special events on Friday nights and select times through the weekend, but generally we’d like our community to plan to reach us for services Monday-Thursday, 9am-8pm.
For Private Lesson students and families: You can still call in on Fridays to let us know about absences for the next week to ensure you can follow our new 48-hour notice policy.
