*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 and Instagram) periodically. Be sure to “like” us “and “follow” us! We also have a special “Parent Page” on FaceBook “CJDA Parents and Students Private Group”.
*WAITING ROOM: We are excited to bring back our closed circuit TV’s in the waiting room! The TV’s will be on a “rotating schedule”; you will be sent a calendar noting which weeks your child’s classroom will be on the monitors. Our waiting room is on the small side, so we ask that you run an errand or wait in your car on the weeks your child’s class is not on the monitor.
*PEAK WEEKS: In December and May, we will be inviting parents into the dance classrooms to see what your child has been learning! Exact dates will be announced soon!
*TUITION: Tuition is due the first of each month September-May. We appreciate your prompt payments. A $20 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! 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. If your dancer is sick or injured, they may take a make-up class. Make-up classes can be scheduled with the front desk staff. *Make-up classes can be done up until March 30th, any classes missed after this date are not eligible for a make-up class.
Please note: 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 $32.50 each for 3-6 years olds and $34 each for ages 7 & up. This charge will be automatically debited with the tuition payment. *Costume fees are non-refundable.
*BATHROOM BREAKS: Please encourage your child to use the bathroom BEFORE their class. This helps to avoid disruptions during class. If a parent is not there at the studio, a staff member will walk children under 7 to the bathroom.
*ATTENDANCE: Attendance is vital to student progress and group choreography. If you will be absent, please email the studio to let us know. You may make up any missed class by coming to another class of the same age and level. Please inquire which class would be best suited for a makeup class.
*Make-up classes can be done up until March 30th, any classes missed after this date are not eligible for a make-up class.
*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 regarding cancellations. We do not always follow the Peabody Public school system.
*We build in 1-3 “snowdays” for classes cancelled due to weather or other circumstances. Tuition is based on 30 classes, classes meet 31-33 times depending on the recital date. If a cancellation occurs and we still have extra days, there will not be a make-up class.
*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 and all belongings.
