Inclement Weather Cancellations:
All class cancellations due to weather will be posted on the studio answering machine. Please call the studio one (1) hour prior to your child’s class time to hear a message on the Answering machine regarding class cancellations. We DO NOT always put cancellations on WICC. Rescheduling of classes will only be made if there are three (3) OR MORE of the same classes canceled.
What are the factors that determine the studio being closed for weather conditions?
When determining to close the studio due to weather, we rely on the conditions around 2:00pm and what the weather report is for the remaining evening. We also take into account that the majority of our teachers travel quite a distance and we try to predict the weather for their travel at the end of the evening. We do our very best to make the right decision for everyone. If the studio is going to be closed, a message is posted on the studio answering machine NO LATER THAN 3:00pm.
CDC Annual Student Recital
- The student recital will be broken up into three or four recitals to maintain a reasonable show length. Some classes will have the opportunity to perform in more than one recital.
- In December, parents will be given a Recital Permission Slip that gives CDC permission to order their child’s Recital Costume(s). Once the permission slip has been signed, payment for the costumes MUST be made even if your child decides NOT to participate in the recital.
- The teachers of CDC will choose costumes for each class. Costs for the costumes will stay between the range of $55-$85 per costume. CDC will order Recital Tights needed for your child’s costume. The cost of the tights will be added to the Costume Cost.
- Costume balances will be distributed by the beginning of January and will be due by February 1st. Students will not receive their Costumes if there is an outstanding balance on Tuition and/or Costume Fee has not been paid.
- Music and Choreography will be chosen by the teachers and will be age appropriate.
Scholarships & Awards
- Perfect Attendance Award: Student must attend ALL of their classes. Make-up classes do not count towards Perfect Attendance.

- Each student will receive a Recital Participation Trophy
- Tuition Scholarships: A plaque and one (1) year of full tuition for one (1) class
Scholarships will be based on the following criteria:

General Studio Policies
- CDC is not responsible for lost or stolen items.
- Parking is available to the right or left of the building.
- Parent observation will be allowed throughout the year via our two way viewing windows.
- Children/Siblings must be supervised by their parent/guardian while in the waiting area.
- Promptness is essential due to the importance of a complete warm-up. It will then be up to the teacher’s discretion if there is an adequate amount of warm-up left for the student to participate in class.
Dance Etiquette: When entering into a class tardy, the student should ask permission to participate.
- Please call the studio if your child will be absent from class. Your instructor will give you optional classes for a make-up class.
Dance Etiquette: Technique is a progression that builds from class to class. Excessive absences will inhibit a dancer’s growth.
- Student’s hair must be securely fastened away from the neck and face. Dance Etiquette: Hair in Bun is preferred.
- Jewelry should not be worn to class.
Dance Etiquette: Jewelry becomes a distraction to younger children and hazardous to older children due to more intricate dancing.
- Refrain from chewing gum; it is a choking hazard.
- CDC maintains a specific Dress Code (Click Here to view dress code)
Dance Etiquette: Uniformity is important to the discipline and development of a dancer. Absolutely NO T-shirts, shorts, sweatpants or sweatshirts are to be worn in class.
Dance Etiquette: Hiding behind over-sized clothing inhibits the teacher’s ability to correct body placement.
- CDC offers, at competitive prices, all appropriate dance attire. This is a service that is provided however; you are under no obligation to purchase your dance attire at CDC. CDC recommends Stage Center in Monroe as an additional source of dance-wear.
