  1. Payment Information
    Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. We accept cash, checks, credit card (Visa, Master Card, Amex, and Discover), and bank draft. We also offer an automatic charge option. All checks should be made payable to "CMC". Tuition is the same amount each month regardless if it is a 3, 4, or 5 week month. Tuition is based on the flat rate per season and then divided into 9 monthly payments; the monthly payment amount is shown when you register. During registration you will be charged the first and last month’s tuition with a one-time $20 registration fee per student or $25 per family.
  2. Tuition is due on the first of each month. If tuition is not paid by the 10th of each
    month, your method of payment (credit card or bank draft) on file will be automatically
    - For your convenience, you may pay the entire season’s tuition by September 10, 2019 and will receive 5% off the total season’s tuition.
    - CMC offers a $10 discount per additional sibling off the total monthly tuition for any
    families with more than one sibling taking class at CMC.
    - First & last month’s tuition is due at the time of registration. If you do not finish out
    the dance year at CMC, we will refund 50% of the last month’s tuition.
  3. If we cancel class: CMC cancels classes with the Brecksville/Broadview Heights school district for snow days. If CMC cancels class due to snow or emergency, we will schedule a make up day for dancers to attend. CMC will notify you of a cancelled class via email at least 2 hours before class time.
    ALSO, PLEASE check Facebook or Instagram @creativemovementcenter
    Or our website- for class cancellations.
  4. If you miss a class: (we hope you never do!) If a student misses class for any reason, it is their responsibility to contact their instructor. CMC instructors will recommend another class day/time to make up the class. Students should make up the class within 1 month of missing class, in order to learn the technique objective for the month.
  5. We do not permit students to make up classes after January, as we start working on recital dances at that time and all classes are learning different routines.
  6. Showcase /Costume Information: We strive to create a Showcase experience that is positive and stress free for the dancers & their families. We will also continue to order the most affordable costumes possible for the Showcase. Please, to help you plan ahead- each costume will cost between $40- $65 per dance/costume. The average costume at CMC is $50.00, and the average ballet or teen costume is $65.
    COSTUME FEES will be due this season FEB. 1, 2020
