Welcome to Courtney’s Dance Artistry! A handbook has been developed so that you know what to expect throughout the dance year. You will want to keep and refer to it often.
FAQ: (Details regarding the following can be found throughout the handbook.)
CDA will send important messages via text and email, but the best way to keep up with daily activity is to join our group on “Spaces by Wix.” P. 12
There is a $35 non-refundable registration fee per student to hold a spot in class. P.13
Fall-Spring Weekly classes start in September, the day after Labor Day, and continue through May.
Specific CDA classroom attire and appropriate shoes are required for all dancers. P.7
Tuition is due on the 1st of each month (beginning September 1). CDA has a NO REFUND policy and does not pro-rate tuition. A 20% late fee will apply to any balance not paid on or before the 15th. P.13
To avoid late fees, we strongly suggest everyone sign up for AutoPay (Required for Elite Dancers). There is a small fee when autopay (same as any on line payment) is processed, so if you prefer to pay via check or cash, you may do so at any time prior to the autopay run date (which is the 15th each month, Sept.-May). On the 15th, autopay will process and your card or bank account will be charged for the balance due on the account at that time. P.13
Spring Showcase costumes are $90 per class for Mini-Senior level dancers. Preschool costumes are $60 per costume. Each Preschool class will have two “debut” dances in the show. Costume fees will be charged to accounts on September 16, with a due date of October 15. P. 19
CDA’s production of “A Nutcracker Story” is held in December. All students will participate in classes, but may opt out of the stage performance if you so desire. Nutcracker information will be provided at Fall Open House and early September. P.15
A Spring Showcase Fee of $90 for your first dancer and $50 for each sibling on the same family account is due on or before January 15. This fee covers one pair of tan convertible tights, press on eye shadow, dancer t-shirt, two showcase tickets (per account), interview editing, staging sessions, dress rehearsal, etc. P.19
CDA closes on Cullman City School Holidays and may follow suit in the event of inclement weather closings and early dismissals. P.13 & 14
