We request payment in advance of you taking the private dance lessons, group class, social, or workshop. No refunds are given for no-shows or cancellations within 12 hours of the scheduled lesson(s) or specialty group class(es). In exceptional circumstances an agreement may be reached to prevent your private lesson(s) from getting charged.
Private lessons: A 12-24 hr cancellation notice in writing via email, text message, or phone call to CDC Dance Studio must be given for private classes. Otherwise, fees will remain payable. Should you give your 12-24 hrs notice, CDC Dance Studio will reschedule the private lesson.
Group classes: Students may subscribe to a monthly membership or drop-in. Payments must be made prior to attending class for drop-in students. Students on monthly memberships are only valid if they are "active" students of the studio -- to be considered an "active" student", one private lesson must be taken per week.
Socials: Payments must be made at the door for non-members of the studio attending the social. Socials are complimentary to all "active students" of the studio.
Specialty workshops: Places are only secured once full payment has been made. No refunds apply to all workshops unless it’s canceled by CDC Dance Studio due to a fault on the company’s behalf.
Cancellation of classes: If classes are canceled due to the fault of the company the time will be made up, or fees will be deducted from the following month’s fees. This will be done at the discretion of CDC Dance Studio. We will not be financially liable for classes or dates canceled due to events beyond our reasonable control. We retain the right to change the advertised program of classes in the event of illness or other circumstances beyond our control. CDC Dance Studio reserves the right to change fees without prior notice. However, we will endeavor to inform students of any changes as soon as possible.
Students are expected to arrive on time. Dance is a physical activity that requires the body to be warmed up in order to execute movement safely. Students who are more than 10 minutes late to their private lesson may still be charged the full lesson fee without the possibility of the teacher making up the missed time.
Students are encouraged to wear appropriate attire for their dance lessons to have the best experience and proper shoes for safety reasons. For example, comfortable clothes and sneakers for cardio class or dancewear with ballroom shoes for ballroom technique class. No flip flops or sandals for any dance classes.
CDC Dance Studio do not accept any responsibility for items lost or stolen, although anything we do find will be placed in lost property.
CDC Dance Studio takes the health and safety of all dancers, students, and teachers very seriously; we take appropriate measures to make sure the environment is safe for all. The School will undertake regular risk assessments regarding premises hired and any concerns will be raised with the providers.
Dance is as an active engagement as any sport, and whilst every effort is made to avoid them, injuries can happen. The school accepts no responsibility for injuries sustained via any means other than a teacher’s negligence.
Teaching dance is a physical activity and appropriate physical contact between students and teachers in class in essential to training. CDC Dance Studio recognizes that such physical contact is a potentially complex area, and the company also fully recognizes it’s responsibilities for safeguarding students and teachers and for protecting their welfare. The following principles and procedures are in place to fulfill the company’s obligations:
a. Contact by the teacher is made with a particular awareness of the needs of each individual to assist the dancer in correcting placement.
b. All teachers will treat any physical contact with due sensitivity and care, and with due regard for the wishes of the student.
c. Contact will not involve force or the use of any instrument.
d. Both students and teachers should feel free to report any concerns to the studio manager, Bonnie Yuen or Kaleb Landrum
