Steps we are taking:

The safety and health of your child is our number one concern. Which is why we’ll be taking the following measures to ensure all of our dancers remain safe while at our studio.

  • 1 Parent of our Tot, Tiny, Mini dancers will be allowed inside the studio (with a mask)
  • Water fountains will only be used to refill personal water bottles
  • Community props will not be used. (individual prop kits will be available for all tot, tiny and mini classes excluding tumble/acro)
  • All studio and building touch points will be disinfected at the end of each day
  • Restrooms will be disinfected at the end of each day
  • From the NC Department of Health:
    • Following July 27 guidance from the CDC, all unvaccinated individuals should wear a face covering in all indoor public settings.

      Fully vaccinated individuals should wear a face covering in all indoor public spaces when in a county of high or substantial levels of transmission as defined by the CDC. As of mid-August 2021, all of North Carolina is experiencing high levels of transmission.

      In general, you do not need to wear a mask in outdoor settings but consider doing so in crowded outdoor settings and for activities with close contact with others who are not fully vaccinated.

Financial Obligation at time of registration: These fees are NON-REFUNDABLE:

Membership Fee: $30 per student; max of $60 per family
Last month’s tuition (May 2022)

Monthly Class Tuition Policies:

Tuition at CDE is based on a 10-month calendar beginning on August 2nd, 2021 and ending on May 14th, 2022. Tuition can be paid monthly or in full at time of registration. Tuition is not based on a four-classes-per-month rate but rather on the annual cost divided into 10 payments. 

We accept VISA, MasterCard, AMEX or Discover and all monthly tuition will be charged via AUTO-PAY on the 7th of each month. All accounts that sign up online are automatically set up for e-payment and you are authorizing CDE to use the account information for all of your account billing (including membership fee, tuition, costume fees, late fees, showcase fees, and other studio or dance related items purchased on your account). After the 10th of the month, a $25 late fee will be charged and enforced on all accounts past due, including e-payment accounts. Late notices will be sent via email. Tuition is not prorated for absences or studio closures. Students are encouraged to attend makeup classes for classes missed. 

Monthly tuition will be processed on the 7th of each month. You are required to keep a current card on file in your portal. If you prefer a different form of payment (cash, check) your payment must be received prior to the automatic charge date of the 7th. If not received before the 7th, your required card on file will be charged the outstanding amount. 

Tuition is not prorated for absences or studio closures. Students are encouraged to attend makeup classes for absences. You will register for makeup classes in your parent portal. 

Total monthly tuition is determined by the total amount of time your dancer receives instruction per week. To determine family tuition, total each individual’s tuition, and take a 10% discount on the lesser individual amount. For example: Child 1 takes 2 hours: $115, Child 2 takes 1hr: ($75 minus 10% ($7.50)= $67.50), Total family tuition is $182.50 per month.
