September 2019 Newsletter
Happy September! We hope your dancers are enjoying their classes with us so far and that everyone is getting back in to the swing of schedules with school and activities (we know it is a crazy time of year for all)! We apologize for the lengthy newsletter, but we have a lot happening in this month! Please take the time to read through it and email info@
September full monthly tuition was processed Monday, Saturday, September 2nd. You did not need to do anything for this unless you received an email saying that your tuition could not be processed. This means we either do not have a card on file for you, it is expired, or there are insufficient funds. Please note that if you wish to pay by check or cash, we do ask for TWO MONTHS payment of tuition. Tuition breakdown can be found here:
And you can access your online portal to view account statements, update payment information, etc. by visiting:
**Note: Our withdrawal policy online states: Enrollment carries over automatically from month to month. If you need to take time off or withdraw your child from class, please notify CDA staff at least two weeks before your payment is due. If we do not receive this notice, you will be responsible for a full month’s tuition, even if your child does not attend class. If your child attends class anytime during a month, you will be charged a full month’s tuition.
