Dear Parents and Students,

I would like to extend a warm welcome to Miss Cindy's School of Dance.  Our staff is very happy to be working with your children in their development through dance, gymnastics, and other courses offered at the studio.  Please keep the following information and school rules to refer to throughout the year.  Additional newsletters will be emailed periodically to keep you informed of upcoming studio events.  Please send your email address to www.misscindysschoolofdance.com to be included in our data base.  If your email address has changed from last year please send your new one so we can update the data base.


Classes will begin on October 5th and run through June, ending with our main recital.  When the Quakertown public schools are closed due to snow, (not inservice days), then our school is closed, in which case the student should come to his/her assigned make-up class (listed on the class schedule form).  All students should arrive five minutes before their classes to prepare, so that class may start on time.  Parents, please pick up your children immediately after their class, unless they are waiting for a later class. Such students must refrain from running in and out of the studios or otherwise disturbing the class in session.


Each student will receive a tuition envelope, which may be dropped in the tuition box or placed on the desk at any studio each month.  It will be stamped and returned at the following class for you to keep as a receipt.  If it is lost, the school records will be used to show accurate payment.  Tuition rates are calculated for a 9 month school calendar.  The total tuition is divided into 9 monthly payments due one month in advance.  The total number of classes per month varies and does not affect the monthly tuition due.  Payment for October should be mailed in as soon as possible to reserve a spot in the class and must be paid by September 5th in order for your child to participate in class. November's payment is due the first week of classes.  Anyone who wishes to pay for the full year will receive the last month of classes at ½  charge.  **School policy – Tuition is due one month in advance.  After 10 days, a 10% service fee will be added. ** all tuition must be paid by may 1st .   There will be no refunds for missed classes or withdrawal from class for any reason.  Students are expected to attend their scheduled make-up classes.


If your child has any health concerns or food allergies, please bring a note to the first class so the staff and I can be made aware of the problem.  


Parents are only allowed to observe classes during the special visiting days.  No exceptions will be made.  These dates will be announced in monthly newsletters.


We offer dance birthday parties in both Perkasie and Quakertown studios.  Gymnastic birthday parties are only offered in our Perkasie studio.  The parties are 1 ½ hours.  Prices vary according to how many guests attend.  If you are interested, please call the studio at 215-536-6755 to reserve your date.  Dates fill up fast so call now.  A $50.00 non-refundable deposit is required to reserve the date.



**********OPEN HOUSE**********

This year we will be holding an open house at both of our studio locations.  You are welcome to visit our studios to see the classrooms and speak with the staff.  You may also use this time to try on and order dancewear from our store so your child will be ready for his/her class.  We hope you will visit with us.

       MANDATORY DRESS CODE 2020 – 2021


It is very difficult to teach students when they are not dressed properly and are wearing different styles, colors, and fit of clothing.  For teachers, a dress code helps reveal how well their students are implementing the technical aspects of dance being taught, especially ballet.  Body alignment, stretched feet, and extended knees cannot be seen when they are draped in baggy sweats.  We also have found that the children are ready to learn and dance when they are dressed properly.  Preschool and Kindergarten students cannot concentrate when they are pulling on sparkles, tutus, or sequins on their leotards.  It also becomes dangerous for the classes following them, because the floor does become slippery from the glitter and sequins.


Below is a list, along with prices of options for each dress code.  Each option is listed as a package and priced accordingly.  You may use the supply order form to place your order.  Write the option code on the order form, but fill out the information for each item in the option, including item name, size and color.  List the option price.  Turn your order in immediately so the items will arrive for the student's first class.


If you have any questions, please contact the studio office.
