Care of Students: The school is not responsible for providing before or after class care for students. Students are not to be left at the school for excessive time periods before or after their classes. All students should be escorted by a parent/guardian into the studio and brought to their appropriate classroom. All parents are responsible for making sure their child safely enters our school, regardless of their age. They are NOT allowed to be dropped off at the curb with the assumption of CID staff and/or faculty being present. Parents/Guardians are requested to be in the school’s vicinity with 10 minutes of their child’s dismal from class. A courtesy call should be made if the parent/guardian of the student will be late, allowing the instructor and student to be notified in a timely manner.

Parent’s Responsibility to be Aware of Dates and Events: It is the responsibility of the parent or adult student to be aware of all school activities, such as viewing days, recitals, extra classes and dates the school is open or closed. The school will post all such notices on the school bulletin board as well as emailing/sending notices home with the students and posting the information on our website. Newsletters containing this information are emailed home the first week of each month and are also available at the desk. It is the parent’s responsibility to regularly check these boards and read the newsletters to ensure they are informed. It is the responsibility of the parents or adult students to inform the school of any address or telephone number changes.

Injuries: Parents, legal guardians of minor students and adult students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on school property resulting from normal dance and gymnastics activity or any other activity conducted by the students or parents before, during or after class time.

Photo Release: The school is hereby granted permission to take photographs of the students to use in brochures, websites, posters, advertisements and other promotional materials the school creates. Permission is also hereby granted for the school to copyright such photographs in its name.

Attendance & Make-ups: Attending class on a regular basis is important in any learning experience. The consistency and repetition of trainings is necessary for proper technique to be learned. Arrive early to class. Students may not be allowed to take class if they are more than 15 minutes late. If a child misses a class and monthly tuition has been paid, the dancer is allowed one make-up class for each class missed. Make-up classes are a curtesy for registered students only. A make-up class is any other class that we offer for their age and dance level. Our teachers highly recommend that dancers take advantage of make-up classes in order to help them from falling behind in their dance training. Making the class up is the responsibility of the parent and student. You have the entire dance season to make-up any missed classes. If you elect not to make up the missed class, it will not be credited to your next month’s tuition. There are no transfers, refunds or credits.

Class Placement: Class placement is determined by the instructor. Dance education requires “hands-on” instruction as well as verbal instruction. Instructors will regularly correct your child by touching their arms, legs, feet, hips, back and head to move them to the correct position. Instructors will also verbally correct your child during the class and offer encouraging feedback.

Summer Camps & Classes:A 50% deposit for all summer camps and classes is due at the time of registration with the remaining balance due on June 1st. Refunds, less a 15% processing fee, will be given through May 1st only.
