Hello CDA Families!
We are officially at the start of our Spring Semester and although Winter Break seemed to fly by, we couldn’t be more excited! You are receiving this email if you have a student enrolled for the Spring Semester that begins today, January 12th! Just a few things to note before the dancing begins!
1) TUITION: A reminder that tuition will be processed this evening! Tuition for January will be pro rated since we only have 3 weeks left of the month! You do not have to do anything for this unless you receive an email the your tuition couldn’t be processed. This means that we either don’t have a credit card on file for you, or it is expired. If you wish to pay by check, we ask that you pay two months at a time. To view your account you can log on at https://www.thestudiodirector.com/contemporarydanceacademy/portal.jsp?page=Login
2) ENROLLMENT: Your dancers enrollment automatically rolls over from month to month so your dancer is in the same class that they were in the Fall semester. The beginning of a semester is a great time to add any extra classes your dancer has been wanting to try (Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, etc.). Enrollment will close mid-February so we can start working on Recital dances so now is the time if you have any friends who were wanting to try out the studio or if your dancer wants to add a class!
3) RECITAL AND COSTUME FEES: We just got done with Nutcracker and it is already time to start thinking about Spring Recital and our Tiny Tot performances! The Tiny Tot performances will take place at the Lincoln Center on Saturday, May 30th and our Spring Recital (Levels 1-9 and Fast Track) will be Monday, June 1st! Everyone will be learning their dances during their regularly scheduled class times, and it is so fun for the dancers to show off everything they have been working on. We do not charge a Recital Fee, but there will be a Costume Fee if your dancer will be participating in the show. They will get to keep their costumes and the costumes will range anywhere from $50-$75 each. You will be receiving a packet with the costume order form and show info next week, but costume fees will be DUE SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 7TH!
4) DRESS CODE: A reminder to please visit the website for your dancers specific dress code requirements. We will be enforcing dress code after the first two weeks of classes so please make sure your dancers are coming prepared with their correct shoes, hair secured in a Pony Tail or Bun, and their proper dance attire! You can visit Prima Dancewear in Old Town for all of your uniform needs and if you tell them your dancer is a student at CDA, you will receive 15% off your purchase!
We are so excited for another semester here at CDA and hope your dancers are too!
