Membership Descriptions

The Student Membership is for people who attend traditional Irish Step Dance classes. Not applicable for MCID Company members.

The Punch Card is designed for adults seeking more flexibility in their schedule and don't want to feel tied down every week. Not applicable for kids or MCID Company members.

The Company Membership provides a dancer with access to all company regularly scheduled classes and all academy traditional Irish Step danceclasses appropriate to the student's age and skill-level. 

We also provide a 100% Satisfaction Guarantee - if you are not completely satisfied within 7 days of your first class, we will refund your first month's membership fee.

Scheduling Policies

  • If you miss a class, then it is your responsibility to follow up with your instructor or fellow dancers to obtain new material before your next class / rehearsal.
  • Motor City Irish Dance will strive to reschedule and makeup any unscheduled class cancellations it is responsible for.
  • In the case of inclement weather, Rochester Community Schools closures, or acts of God, class cancellations will not be rescheduled. However, if a significant number of classes are cancelled over an extended period of time for the same reason, we will make every effort to schedule a makeup workshop session for the affected dancers at no additional charge.
  • In the run up to a performance, company classes will serve as scheduled performance rehearsal time. Additional performance rehearsal time may be scheduled if the class majority believe it would be significantly beneficial.
