Dear Parents,

Hello and welcome to Contemporary Dance Academy’s 2014-2015 Dance Season.

Here are the audition results! CDA Performance Team and CDA Company

View the October Saturday rehearsal schedule for The Nutcracker.

We are so excited for this year to start and we hope you are too!  There are going to be a lot of fun and exciting performing opportunities and I know all of the dancers are going to find their time to shine.  Please take a moment to acquaint yourself with the Parent’s Corner of our website.  I’ll be posting important reminders as well as posting all of the handouts from class, rehearsal schedules, etc.  Don’t forget to like the Contemporary Dance Academy’s Facebook and Instagram page as well for it is also a great way to get updates, and quick answers to questions.

A few reminders on the payment front:  If you have not done so already, please enter your payment information into your account.  Our system is totally secure and is our preferred payment method.   Don’t let the word “automatic” scare you icon smile   I am the one that processes your payments at the beginning of every month so if you have anything come up (credit card number change, etc.) feel free to email me or speak with someone at the front desk. Paying through our online system is the only way you can pay monthly and avoid any late fees.  If you have made arrangements to pay by another method, please remember that you must pay 2 months at a time and it is due at the first lesson of the month, no exceptions, and a $10 late fee will be applied if it is not.

Other reminders to help make this a successful year: Please try to be on time to class and make each class a priority.  It is important to warm-up and condition our muscles properly in order to avoid injury.  Missing even 10 minutes of class hinders a dancer’s development.  Proper dance attire is also important for class. The dress code is outlined on the website if you have any questions.

All dancers should have a dance bag to keep shoes in, and please label all dance items with your dancers name.  A piece of masking tape placed on the inside of their shoe is a great way to do this.

Please read through our Studio Policies and the Season Calendar that are attached, and can also be found at  We are constantly updating the website and facebook so they are great resources when you have a question.

Please keep in mind, the best way to get ahold of us is by email at  You can call the studio phone at 970-232-9539, however, it will only be answered during business hours when we have someone at the front desk.  Please be sure to leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
