CESOD remains committed to protecting our dancers from COVID-19. Our instructors will continue to clean their rooms at the end of every evening and the studio will continue to be professionally sanitized every six weeks. Hand-sanitizing stations will also remain around the facility. In the case of infection, dancers will be allowed to attend a make-up class following their return. No refunds will be given due to COVID-19.
Dropping a Class / Withdrawing
All dancers have 30 days to ensure continuation with classes. If dancers drop classes after the 30-day window, 25% of the remaining yearly balance will be due at the end of the current month. If this fee is not paid in full, tuition installments will continue to be billed as normal. Please remember dancing at CESOD is a 10-month commitment from September to June. CESOD must be notified via writing if any classes need to be added/dropped or a student wishes to withdraw completely.
All classes are non-refundable.
If necessary, CESOD reserves the right to make schedule changes after the start of Fall classes.
