CSDA September 2021 Newsletter

We are thrilled to welcome you to our 39th Season!

Classes begin Wednesday, September 8th. We are so excited to see our former students smiling faces and welcome our new students to our dance family.

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 https://www.facebook.com/groups/CSDAStudioMembers

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!

Hint hint: Let us know when your dancer has accomplished something great. Like how Faye wrote a book and Mary became an ambassador for guiDANCE.

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.

Waiting Rooms, Masks & Viewing

Last year our waiting rooms were closed and kept clean with the minimal traffic. This helped us with no illnesses spread dancer to dancer. This year we will be utilizing the waiting area for our dancers getting ready to go into class. Everyone who enters our small waiting rooms will need to remain masked and masks are recommended and encouraged in our dance rooms.

This is why we have decided to have an open viewing policy! Every week you will be able to watch your dancers and still be connected to the studio. To access the zoom, click the camera icon under today's schedule in your parent portal.

We are continuing with drop off at the main entrance of each building and pick up will be at the back door.

For illnesses please follow the same policy as schools. If your child is under the weather and would like to zoom class please text 774-343-9209. Even though zooms are open every class, we need to give the teacher a heads up of any dancer dancing at home. Thank you for everyone last year keeping dancers home and our studios safe. Let's do this again!

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

Online Store & Used Shoes

The online store is now available in your parent portal. Orders placed September 1st thru September 15th will be available during classes the first week of October. Shoe Orders: For sizing accuracy, please read sizing information stated in Individual Shoe Description prior to ordering. All Shoe sales are Final Sale.

We will be sizing for new and used shoes the first week of classes. 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. There is a slot in the locked desk at both studios for payments. This will be checked daily. Tuition can be paid by credit card on your parent portal, check or cash in studio, or by mail. 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. 9, 2021 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.
