Classes and Registration
Tuition, Fees, Discounts and Late Payments
Attendance, Absenteeism and Withdrawal Policy
Absenteeism prevents a dancer and her class from performing at their highest level. If the instructor considers absences to be excessive, a student may be excluded from performances. Dress rehearsals for recital performances are mandatory. Generally speaking, each recital will require one dress rehearsal. No refunds or account credits will be given by CPAA for missed classes. Withdrawals are permitted only with a thirty day notice and payment of any tuition due during that period. Withdrawals necessitated by a student’s injury must be documented by doctor’s note provided to the CPAA directors. In such cases, tuition for subsequent months will be waived until the student is able to return.
If classes must be cancelled due to extenuating circumstances notice will be given via email to the addresses on file and notice will be posted on CPAA’s Facebook page. Any cancelled classes will be re-scheduled as soon as practical.
Parents, legal guardians of minors, students and adult students waive the right to any legal action for any injury sustained on church property resulting from class activity or any other activity conducted by the students before, during or after class. Parents alone are responsible for maintaining adequate insurance coverage to protect against losses as a result of any injury.
Any conduct by child or parent that is considered in the sole discretion of the Directors to be be unbecoming, such as disrespectful communication and not adhering to the policies of CPAA and the church will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from the program. Students under the age of 13 must be under direct adult supervision at all times. At no time may children be permitted to wander the church campus unsupervised. Any violation of this policy could result in dismissal from the program. Damage to church property caused by failure to properly supervise a child will be the parent’s financial responsibility.
Care of Students
CPAA, its instructors, and the church and its employees are not responsible for providing care before or after class to the students. Late pickups could result in fees at a rate of $10 for each fifteen minute increment or any portion thereof. Please contact your instructor if you will be late to pick up your child. If you elect to wait for your child during their classes, we ask that you do so in one of the following designated areas: Gathering Space, Cafe or Student Building Lobby. Note: Parents are not permitted to sit-in on classes.
Promotional Use of Images
From time to time, CPAA, or its delegates, may photograph or video/audio record lessons and/or recitals. Your acceptance of these Terms and Conditions grants CPAA and First Baptist Concord permission to use any such image or recording of your child for any legitimate promotional purpose. Acceptance of Complete Terms and Conditions By registering your child for CPAA, you acknowledge that you have read and accepted these Terms and Conditions.
