Families are to register online through your parent portal. Registration will not be accepted over the phone, in person, via email or social media accounts. September’s tuition and membership fee are due at the time of enrollment. This will hold your dancer’s spot in class. All families must complete the checkout process after enrolling online or your registration will be canceled.

 

Photo/Video Release Waiver

Photos and/or videos that are taken in class are used for promotional purposes. I grant permission for CSD to use my child's photograph and/or video to be used for promotional purposes. Please contact the the office if you do not want your child(ren) in media (photo or video) for CSD.

 

Payment Policies

CSD tuition is a yearly fee and is based on an entire season of dance. Our 41st season of dance runs from Mid-September through Mid-June 2021. Tuition is not based on the number of classes in a month or attendance. There are NO refunds for missed classes as we provide a make-up schedule. 

Tuition is a yearly fee that can be paid in three ways. 

1) Paid with one Full Annual Payment

2) Bi-Annually with two equal payments. One in August and one in January. 

3) Divided into 10 month installments (August-May) Monthly installments are now due the month prior.

 

September’s tuition and membership fee are due at the time of enrollment. This will hold your dancer’s spot in class. All families must complete the checkout process after enrolling online or your registration will be canceled. Monthly installments are now due the month prior. For example: September’s installment (1/10)  is due upon enrollment. October’s installment (2/10) will be paid on September 15th. There will not be an installment due in June! 

Please note: If you pay your dancer's tuition for the full year and withdraw from classes for unforeseen circumstances (injury, illness, etc.) we will credit the remaining installments minus 25%. We suggest you only pay the year in full if you are 100% confident your dancer will participate fully in the entire season.

 

Late fee: Payments are due the 15th of each month for families who pay monthly installments. Payments made after the 15th of the month, will be charged a $15.00 late fee and the amount due will automatically be charged to the card on file the following business day. 

 

Accounts that are 30 days past due will be suspended from CSD. 

 

Any checks returned by the bank will incur a $25.00 bank fee.

 

Please contact the office at csdinfo@cherylsschoolofdance.com with any concerns.

CSD reserves the right to cancel or combine a class with less than 4 dancers in them. 

 

Virtual Classes

We will also be offering our FULL class schedule virtually as well. If your family is interested in virtual classes, please enroll in the 2020-2021 Virtual Season classes online.

If we have a government mandated shutdown, we will transfer our studio to virtual classes. Tuition will remain the same. We will not issue credits or refunds.

 

Performances

All dancers are invited to perform in our June Recital! It is a great opportunity and we encourage all of our dancers to participate! 

 

Performance dates and information will be given out in the beginning of the season. Please let us know if your dancer will not be participating in our performances. 

 

Dress Rehearsal: Participation in the dress rehearsal is mandatory for dancers who participate in the June Recital. 

 

Costume fees: Costume fees will be given out in the beginning of the season. Costume fees will be charged to all dancers participating in performances. Costume fees are non-refundable. 

 

Dress Attire

Every dance class has a required dress code that can be found under our “Dress Attire” tab on our website. CSD has a website where you can purchase all of your class needs. 

All preschool ballet/tap combo classes are required to purchase the uniform. The link is provided in the dress attire section on our website. 

 

Proper shoes and attire must be worn to participate in class. Hair should be pulled back away from the face for all classes. Don’t forget to write your name in all shoes, bags, etc. You can find descriptions and examples of the proper attire for each class in the Classes and Dress Attire section of our website.

 

Missed Classes

If your dancer misses class due to illness or other personal reasons, they will be able to make-up the missed class in a similar class. There will be no discount or refund given for missed classes. There are no make ups for classes missed when the studio is officially closed for holidays, etc. All classes missed due to inclement weather can be made up at your convenience. A make-up schedule is provided on our website.

 

General Policies

  • Good behavior and proper respect for the Directors, staff, studio, curriculum, fellow dancers, and faculty is expected from all CSD dancers, families and siblings.

  • No food or drink besides water are allowed in the dance room.

  • Cell phones are not allowed in the dance rooms. If they are in a dance bag, they should be turned off or set to a silent mode.

  • CSD is not responsible for items left behind at CSD. Please make sure you check for all your belongings before leaving the studio. Make sure to put your name in all attire and footwear as we will keep it aside and return at the next class.

  • Please do your best to attend class on time.

  • Parents, friends, or siblings are not allowed in the classroom at any time. This is for the benefit of your dancer. They will learn more if we have their complete attention.

  • If you need to speak with your child’s teacher, please call or email to set up an appointment as we rarely have time in-between classes.

  • We follow North Providence for inclement weather. For the safety of our dancers, you may always use your own judgment when deciding to travel due to weather. We are part of the Rhode Island Broadcasters Association and will post the closing. We will also send communication via email, voicemail and social media accounts! All classes missed due to inclement weather can be made up at your convenience. A make-up schedule will be provided.

 

Withdrawal Policy

Families must notify the office to complete a “drop form”. All forms must be sent back to the office for completion. Upon receipt, we will unenroll your student(s) from your class and discontinue further payments. Refunds will not be given. Please plan accordingly to submit your drop form before the 15th of the month to avoid further charges.​
