SPRING RECITAL
Each June, we end our season with our fully-staged, professional Spring Recital. We encourage, but do not require participation.
Spring Recital dates and mandatory rehearsal dates are published in the Parent/Student Handbook in August and in Newsletters from November-June. Specific show assignments are published in the February Newsletter. Specific rehearsal assignments are published in the March Newsletter. Special requests to adjust rehearsal and recital times are accepted until January 31st. We attempt to accommodate every school’s activities while meeting the technical demands of the show. Our priority is to prepare your children for the performance experience of a lifetime!

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 class room.  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.

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.
Students with an injury permitting them to not participate fully in classes, need to provide a doctor’s note and an injury prescription form completed by the doctor so our instructors know their limitations and how best to help them heal. Dancer’s not presenting a doctor’s note or a note from the parent will be expected to participate fully in class.

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.

CLASS PLACEMENT
Class placement and advancement is determined solely 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
