CSDA September 2023 Newsletter

Welcome Dancers!

Classes begin Monday, September 11th. We are so excited to see our former dancers and meet our new dancers.

New dance families, if you have not received your Welcome email with information and attached Welcome Booklet it will be coming this week.

Starting the year off right

Our monthly newsletters are emailed out the beginning of the month every month. They are also posted in your portal under files, on our website and posted on the members only Facebook page. Please join our private members page if you haven't already!


Please take a few minutes to read through the newsletter when you receive it. This is to ensure you know what is going on in the studio. Plus! We like to throw in photos of our dancers and achievements (dance and non-dance related), maybe your dancer made it in the newsletter!

If you have moved, changed your phone number or email we need to know. Please make sure your information is up to date in your portals throughout the season. We don't want you to miss any important information.

Viewing Policy & Sick Policy

You will be able to watch your dancers during class. This is a secured zoom link through your parent portal. There will be video, no audio, like a closed circuit tv. To access the zoom, click the camera icon under today's schedule in your parent portal. Please remember to mute your mics and turn off your camera while watching.

For illnesses please follow the same policy as schools. If your child is under the weather please keep your dancer home. You are able to take a make up class for missed classes. Make up classes can be taken at either studio and must be a comparable or lower level class. Email the studio for availability.

Absences can be logged in your parent portal by clicking attendance, then report absence.

Reminder, dancers need to address teachers with Mr & Miss, i.e., Miss Tiffany.

Online Store & Used Shoes

This link www.shopnimbly.com/CSDAmass will bring you directly to our nimbly site to order new dance shoes. Items bought on nimbly will be shipped directly to you. Please make sure you read the descriptions to size your dancers correctly. You are still able to order our studio swag on the parent portals online store. The link for dance shoes is also on the online store under featured items.

We will have used shoes available to try on and purchase during the first week of classes. Please email asmith@centerstagestudios.net your child's street shoe size before coming to class. All used shoe sales (cash only) will be done as a 50/50 consignment with the Studio (50% to seller(credit on your portal) / 50% Center Stage) Only shoes in good condition will be sold.

Monthly Tuition

Tuition is due the first week of each month. Tuition can be paid by autopay (sign up in your parent portal), credit card on your parent portal, check or cash in studio, or by mail. There is a slot in the locked desk at both studios for cash/check payments. This will be checked daily. All mailed payments can be mailed to 116 Long Pond Rd., Box 16, Plymouth, MA 02360. We do not send out monthly statements (you will only receive a reminder notice on the 14th of the month if your tuition has not been paid). A $15.00 late fee will be assessed to any tuition payments received after the 15th of the month. Please review our tuition policy, late fees and returned check service charges in our studio handbook. If we receive more than one returned check, the remainder of the year’s monthly payments must be paid by cash or money order.

It is refer a friend time again at CSDA. Have a friend join us by Oct. 8, 2023 and receive $20.00 off June tuition!! One referral credit per student and friend must stay through May. Text or email us letting us know who your friend is when they join to get the credit.

Monthly Fundraising

It is that time of year! School and dance are starting and we go GOLD for the month of September to raise awareness and donations for Pediatric Cancer patients. Look for the gold boot in the lobby to place your bagged change donation in. Dancers can wear Gold clothing to class to show their support September 25th -30th.
