We DO NOT follow public school closings or county/state government offices for inclement weather. Please check our Facebook page or your email to see if classes have been canceled. If your child's class is canceled once due to inclement weather, you may make-up the class by attending an extra class at the same level or lower. If the same class is canceled more than once, a make-up class will be scheduled. Please keep in mind that many of our instructors do not live in Cecil County, so we may need to cancel classes if the roads are bad in their area.
As the weather cools and people are moving indoors increasing the chance of virus spread, we want to remind you to please use common sense and not to crowd the lobby. One parent per dancer in the building should allow enough spacing accommodations. We also ask that dancers NOT enter the building more than 2 minutes before your class time. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in this matter.
CECIL DANCENTER TEXT ALERTS AVAILABLE BY REQUEST!
In addition to email and Facebook notices, Cecil Dancenter also uses a text alert system to help keep you informed of important and time sensitive notifications such as canceled classes, inclement weather alerts, important reminders, etc. We need your permission to be added to the list so if you would like to be added, and have not been added in the past, or have a new number, please email the office at firstname.lastname@example.org to have an email with instructions sent to you.
WE WANT YOU TO "LIKE US"
Keep up-to-date with general studio information by "liking" our Facebook page... click here.
Please click here for information regarding our dress code for each of our dance styles. It is important that you dress appropriately so that the instructor can make sure your technique and form are correct. For classes requiring dance shoes we recommend purchasing those shoes at The Dance Station. Slippers found at Walmart or discount stores are not recommended as it's hard for the instructor to see if the foot is properly pointed.
NOTES ON ATTIRE: Although it is becoming more common to see professionals in the dance industry wearing crop tops, halters and sports bras, our studio requires dancers come to class dressed modestly with their torsos covered. We strive to promote a level of confidence that focuses on dance and not body image; therefore, students will be asked to change if they come to class exposing their torso. If you have any questions or concerns about this, please contact the office. Thank you for helping us to provide a family friendly atmosphere at Cecil Dancenter.
BALLET SLIPPER TIP
Please tuck your dancers ballet slipper laces underneath the top of the shoe. The lace may be cut shorter so it's more comfortable for your child (just make sure to double knot the lace). This provides a more aesthetic look for the mature dancer and for our younger dancers it helps the child/teacher to spend time on instruction rather than tying shoe laces.
Private lessons are a great way for students to get personalized attention and individualized corrections. We have staff members available to give private dance lessons at a rate of $25-$72/hour. If you are interested in private lessons, please contact our office.
