We hope your Thanksgiving Holiday is/was full of family, friends and great food! We wish you a Happy Holiday season that brings you a prosperous New Year! Before 2018 approaches, we have much to do here around the CMC Dance Company!

First, Thursday, November 30th and December 1st is our final rehearsal and performances for our annual Christmas Show. Thank you to all the students that have put time into attending our choreography rehearsals, this week you get to show it all off!  Please read over the paperwork you received at your last rehearsal for final rehearsal/performance times and locations.  If you participated in the choreography last weekend and did not receive your paperwork or have questions, please contact our office at 699-2355

We were honored to celebrate Santa’s arrival at the Great Northern Mall Saturday, November 18th at the Great Northern Mall. Thank you to everyone who came out and supported the dancers and of course welcome Santa Claus!

Costume Deposits Due this month.   We will be measuring students for costumes all this month. A non-refundable costume deposit is due to ensure a costume order is placed for your student.  All students participating in our year end Dance Recital will require a costume to participate.  

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, written notification must be made within 2 weeks of the end of the month.  An official withdrawal form must be completed and are available at the front desk to make any changes to your account.  Until we receive written notification, you are responsible for any and all charges to your account regardless of your attendance to a class.  Thank you for your cooperation.

As the weather begins to deteriorate and the days become shorter, please use caution, when driving in and out of our parking lot.  Drive slowly and watch for students between cars going into and exiting the building.  Do not park up/or wait along the side of the studio or block the main front door drop off.  Please find a parking spot till you see your student ready for pick up then drive back around for pick up.  We appreciate your cooperation to keep the parking lots as safe as possible.   

Snow day cancellation policy is listed on the bottom of your CMC Studio Calendar and located on our website cmcdancecompany.com.  I will keep you up to date with a 411 text alert of weather cancellations.  If you have not signed up for the text alert system, please see the office for instructions. Thank you.

Now that we had our first snow, I presume there will be much more to come. In the event of a snow day, you will be notified through our 411 system.  If you have not registered for it as of yet, please do so by going up to the front desk. If a class is cancelled due to the CNS School district cancelling for bad weather, and you wish to make up a class, please check in with the front desk for a class that is compatible to your class. You may make up a class AFTER the miss, please do not do a make-up class in anticipation of a future miss. Please notify the teacher when entering the room that you are doing a make-up class.  This will assure there is no confusion on what class you regularly attend.

All make-up classes are as close to age and ability as your regularly scheduled class.  Please make every effort to attend your regular class time as this is the class that has been selected for you. 

Snow day cancellation policy,

If the CNS SCHOOL DISCTRICT CANCELS for the day, we are closed.
