SAFER STUDIO: CJDA requires all staff and students to stay home when they are ill. In order to reduce community spread of Coronavirus, we follow best practices and recommendations from our local health department and from our industry association, More Than Just Great Dancing!® CJDA focuses on a hierarchy of measures beginning with keeping ill people home, followed by frequent hand cleaning and good hygiene practices, amplified cleaning, and curricular and facility adaptations to minimize contact and mingling where possible. All studio classes are backed up on an online learning platform. In the event a class is unable to be held at the studio classes will convert to an online learning platform until in-studio classes can resume.

TUITION: Tuition is due the first of each month September-May. We appreciate your prompt payments. A $15 late fee will be applied to any accounts past due after the 10th. We know how busy life is, so for your convenience, we offer “Auto-Pay” which is an automatic bank account debit or automatic credit card payment. If you prefer to pay in cash or check, please do so prior to the 1st of the month! Please note: Tuition rates are for the whole season (September-May), not by the number of classes in the month. A full season of dance includes a minimum of 30 lessons. Tuition payments are non-refundable. If you need to withdraw, please send us an email and we will stop payments for the following month.
RECITAL COSTUME DEPOSITS: Costume deposits are due November 1st and December 1st. They are $30 each for 3-6 years olds and $32.50 each for ages 7 & up. This charge will be automatically debited with the tuition payment. Costume fees are non-refundable.
COMMUNICATION: We go to great lengths to keep you informed and up to date. We send a MONTHLY NEWSLETTER via email that includes what you need to know during that month. Please make sure you are on our email list. We also post information in our lobby, website, and update social media (Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram) periodically. Be sure to “like” and “follow” us on social media to keep up to date with happenings in the studio!
ATTENDANCE: Attendance is vital to student progress and group choreography. If you are sick, please call the studio to let us know. You may make up any missed class by coming to another class of the same age and level. You may also take the class from home via our online platform.
SNOW DAYS: In the event of a snowstorm, there will be a recording on the studio’s voicemail, our social media pages, and we will send an email. We do not always follow the Peabody Public school system. We are now a tech-enabled studio, if our teachers are able to get to the studio then online classes will be held!
BATHROOM BREAKS: Please encourage your child to use the bathroom BEFORE they come. This helps to avoid disruptions during class. Since our waiting room is currently closed, a staff member will walk children under 7 to the bathroom.
DANCE BAG: Dance shoes should not be worn outside. Please use a dance bag to carry them in with you. Be sure to write your name in the shoes.
We are looking forward to a great year and we can’t wait to dance with all of you!
