Payments

We accept checks made out to Christian Dance Center or cash. Monthly tuition is prorated for the year, so there is no discount for holiday breaks. 30 days notice is required for dropping a class. Tuition is due at or before your first class of the month. There is a $15.00 late fee for tuition or fees received after the 15th of the month.

Uniform:

Christian Dance Center requires students to attend classes in uniform. The uniform for ballet consists of a black cami ­style leotard, “theatrical” pink convertible tights with back seam, pink ballet belt and pink ballet shoes with elastic. The students must also wear their hair in a neat bun. The uniform may be purchased at any dancewear store, including Fancy Dancer in the Willowbrook area.

The uniform for Modern or Jazz classes is more relaxed. A student may wear their ballet uniform with dance shorts and appropriate footwear. Parents (or students) should ask the teacher what attire she would prefer for these classes.

Placement and Advancement:

Placement into classes will be at the owner’s and teachers’ discretion. Students will be assessed during the first week of class.

To advance to the next level, students are required to attend a minimum of number of classes (determined by their grade level) and to pass an examination based on the curriculum taught throughout the year, or by teacher evaluation. It is up to the teachers’ and owner’s discretion as to who will take the exams, based on the student’s proficiency of the curriculum of each level. Repeating a level should not be viewed as failure because perfecting the basics is what makes a good dancer great. Occasionally in the Spring semester extra classes are added at additional cost to help the students practice for exams.

Recital:

Recital participation is required. Costume and Recital fees will be set later in the year. We truly strive to keep these costs to a minimum while providing a quality recital for the students and their families.

Cancellations:

Classes require a minimum of 8 students. Classes without full enrollment may be cancelled at the owner’s or teachers’ discretion.
