Studio Policies / Tuition Policies

  1. Payment Information
    Tuition is due on the 1st of each month. We accept cash, checks, credit card (Visa, Master Card, Amex, and Discover). 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 on file will be automatically charged.
  3. For your convenience, you may pay the entire season’s tuition by September 10, 2018 and will receive 5% off the total season’s tuition.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.

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 "OUR BLOG",
Facebook or Instagram @cmcdanceco Or our website- http://www.creativemovementcenter.com for class cancellations.

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. 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.

Please contact our Director with any questions regarding our cancellation policy at Hayley@creativemovementcenter.com

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 FEBRUARY. 1, 2019.

CMC CLASS GUIDELINES/EXPECATIONS

Our goal is to provide guidelines to ensure that our students and families have the best possible education and experience in a safe and happy space!

CMC Dancers respect themselves & others…

  1. Dancers show respect to themselves by trying their best in class.
  2. Dancers show respect to their classmates by using only kind words, cheering each other on, and sharing the positive CMC attitude.
  3. Dancers show respect to their instructor by following the classroom rules & by practicing their “CMC Move(s) of the Month”
  4. Dancers show respect to their studio by only bringing water into the dance room, remembering to spit out chewing gum before class, throwing away or recycling all food and beverages when finished.

CMC families are the best…

We could not do it without you, our fantastic CMC families.
We hope that you keep bringing your child to class on time and ready for dancing fun! We hope that you will help remind our dancers to practice their “Move(s) of the Month”- but we are sure they will remember this on their own.

We ask that you will help us practice our “Open Door Policy” by becoming active members of CMC. You can join our Parent Committee starting in October, try out some of our cool adult classes; and always feel comfortable talking with Miss Hayley about anything!
