Class Info/FAQs

  • Class Attire :

    All students are required to wear some style of dance specific clothing (i.e., leotard and tights, dance pants, leggings, tank tops, etc). As a standard at third grade, students enrolled in ballet classes must wear a leotard and tights only (no attached skirts or extra clothing will be allowed). All students must have their hair pulled back neatly and away from their face in a pony tail or bun.

    Dance attire should be purchased through our online dance boutique!

    Recital Costumes :

    All registered students will be required to participate in the spring recital. Students receive a separate costume for each class they are enrolled (excluding 3/4 yr. old classes). Costumes cost on average $65-$85 each. A $25 costume deposit is required for each costume and is deducted from the total price of the costume. Complete costume balances are due November 1st. If you would like to drop one of your dance classes mid-season, a written notice must be submitted before October 31st to avoid your remaining costume fee.

    Virtual + Make Up Classes :

    This season we will be streaming ALL of our fall classes virtually through a private Zoom classroom.

    If for any reason your dancer is unable to make it to class, we first encourage you to join us virtually. If you are unable to attend virtually dancers will have the option to attend a class of similar age and skill level within two weeks of the class missed. There are no refunds or discounts for classes missed. In consideration of the health and safety of our dancers, CDP may decide to limit make up class opportunities. If you would like to make-up a class, please inquire in the office for a class and time available, or send an email to This will be handled on a case-by-case basis

    Inclement Weather :

    In the case of inclement weather, we operate on the Wake County Public School policy. If Wake County Schools are closed due to inclement weather, the studio will also be closed unless we inform otherwise. Due to scheduling constraints, we are unable to reschedule entire classes. However, students may attend an appropriate class at their convenience in order to make up for their missed class. We do not refund or pro-rate tuition due to inclement weather closings. Notification of closing will be posted on our website and Facebook page.
