Our first month is over and everyone is settling into their classes. Please make sure the students are attending class with the appropriate dance attire and shoes. All students must wear hair up in ponytail. A leotard and tights are required for each class with the only exception being Hip hop. Hip Hop students can wear sweat pants or comfortable clothing that they can easily move in. Students without the hair up will be sent to the front desk for a rubber band. Students not wearing the appropriate attire and shoes will be given a notice by the instructor. Tap students should have black tap shoes, ballet students should be wearing pink leather ballet shoes (not ballet slippers), jazz students should be wearing, white jazz shoes, Acro students footless tights and hip hop students, please bring a pair of clean sneakers (DO NOT WEAR SHOES FROM THE OUTDOORS). We have a dance apparel shop on the premises. Stop in and browse. We carry all the necessary items needed for class. The NEW shop hours are M-Th 5-9pm and Saturday’s 8:30-1:00.

The CMC Competition team is selling Save Around Coupon books. They make great gifts. If you would like to see a copy of the book this year, you will find it up at the front desk.  They are $25, and make great Christmas Gifts!!!!

Tuition is due each month, first class of the month. Any payments received after the 15th of the month receive a 10% late charge on any unpaid balances. You may pay your account by Cash, Credit or Check. Please call the office at any time if you are unsure of your balance and our Accounts Receivable manager, Hana, will be happy to go over the account with you. If you wish to change or withdraw from any class without notification, you will be responsible for all balances due through the end of the month you make changes or withdraw.  Written notification must be within 2 weeks of the end of the month. If you wish to be enrolled in the auto payment plan, please be sure to pick up a form at the front desk.

In the month of June we will have an end of the year recital. All students are invited to participate. During the month of December we will be distributing more information in regards to the recital and at that time, those students wishing to participate in the yearend review will be asked to put down a $30 costume deposit at that time.  The recital dates are still unconfirmed for the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of June.

For the best possible learning experience, please attend class weekly and on time. Keep absences down to a minimum for optimal learning.  If you are ill and can’t attend, you may make up the class in another class that is similar to your class ability and age. Please call the office when you are absent for makeup times.

Parents, while waiting for the students there are seats located in the front lobby as well as down the hall outside the dance rooms.  Class room doors remain closed during class to avoid distraction from those in the hallway. If you wish to view your child in class, the TV monitors in the front lobby are there for your convenience. Parents, friends and siblings are not allowed in the classrooms. Only registered students, teachers and student helpers are allowed in the dance rooms during class time.  We appreciate your cooperation.

While driving in and out of our parking lot, please use caution. Drive slowly and watch for students between cars going into and exiting the building. Do not park up along the front door, drop off only. When picking up please wait in a parking spot and move to front door when your child is visible on the sidewalk to avoid back up.  We appreciate your cooperation to keep the parking lots as safe as possible.

We are closed Monday, October 8th for Columbus Day and Wednesday, October 31st for Halloween.
