Welcome Back Dancers! Classes and Office Hours start Monday, January 3rd


January's tuition will be January plus 1st half of June's tuition. This is necessary due to the ordering of costumes and closing out our tuition in May. This will also be done in April and is for all classes including Hip Hop, Breakin, & Boys Creative. Tuition is posted in your parent portal.

Costumes and Music are available for viewing in your parent portal!

To See your child/children's costume(s) go into your parent portal and click the costume tab on the home page. Recital Music downloads will be under the music files tab.

Recital Accessories: Thank you for ordering your Recital Accessories through the portal. The order for the tights, nylons & finale t-shirts has been placed. You will see the cost for the recital tights in your parent portals by January 20th. Payment for the recital tights is due by March 1st with a $15 late fee posted on March 2nd for non-payment.

Viewing, Illness & Inclement Weather Policies

We are loving the open viewing policy on zoom, are you? Just in case you haven't tried it yet, you can access the zoom link through your parent portal under "today's schedule". Click the "camera icon" and it will bring you to the zoom meeting automatically.

We are still getting costumes in, if dancers are trying on those costumes the zoom will be off for privacy. Also, our zoom does time out if no one is watching and the teachers do not always notice while they are running the class. If you try to log in and can’t get in, please be patient and text 774-343-9209. We will get the zoom back on.

With the uptick in covid cases among kids, we have still managed to keep Covid from spreading at the studio because everyone has been erring on the side of caution and staying home. Please continue to stay home and utilize the zoom option even if you are a part of the test and stay program with your school. You can come back to in person classes once you are cleared.

For other illnesses please follow the same policy as schools. If your child is not feeling well or has been exposed to an illness, please text 774-343-9209 to zoom class. Even though zooms are open, we need to give the teacher a heads up of any dancer dancing at home. Thank you to everyone who is already practicing this policy and zooming when needed!

Curious if there is class due to the weather?!

We will cancel class due to weather 2 hours prior to opening.

Example: If the studio opens for the day at 4pm we will send out the cancellation by 2pm. If we don't post a cancellation that means We Are Open!

The studio may be open even if school is cancelled.

All cancellations will be posted on our website cancellation page, public & private Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, studio telephones and emailed to you. If you haven't already, please join our private studio members Facebook page! https://www.facebook.com/groups/CSDAStudioMembers

The best way to report your dancer's absence is by logging it in your parent portal under attendance. You can also text the studio cell (774-343-9209) to let us know.

New from the Plymouth Public Health Department

You may have already seen on social media or heard it on the news, the Plymouth Board of Health has made a mask mandate for Plymouth. Face masks are required for all public indoor settings starting December 30, 2021. As always, we will keep our families updated with any new guidelines or mandates.

Center Stage Dance Academy has been awarded best school in Sagamore Beach in 2021!

Don't forget to write your name on the piece of paper on the wall above the donations box.
