Where are you located?
We offer classes in New Holland and Manheim PA! There are different schedules for each location so check out all of our classes HERE! https://cavod.org/academy/
How are your classes set up?
Our class schedules run with the school year. We begin at the end of August and end in June. Classes meet once a week!
When can we join?
The best time to register for the school year is between June and August. You will likely get your choice of classes and you will be able to start at the beginning of the year so you don’t miss any of our great instruction.
Can I still join if the year has already started?
Yes! We take new enrollments all the way through the fall. Please plan to join us before Christmas break! After that our classes are shifting from learning technique to creating class choreography.
What is the cost?
All classes and private lessons during the school year have a $3O registration fee per student to offset the cost of administration. Group class tuition starts at $63 per month. Private lesson tuition starts at $27 per half hour. We have 3 payment options for you: pay the total annual cost for 5% discount, or two bi-annual payments for a 3% discount, or an even monthly payment for your convenience. Speaking of convenience we have an auto-pay option so you can set it and forget it! You can see all our rates and payment options on our Tuition Schedule HERE! https://cavod.org/academy/tuition/
What do we have to wear?
All of our ballet classes have a required leotard with their dress code that can be purchased at our Cavod Boutique for your convenience! Other dance classes have requirements that are not specific. All class dress code details can be found HERE! https://cavod.org/academy/dress-code/
Do you require masks?
Masks are optional for all.
Is there an end of the year performance? Are there extra fees?
Well, we don’t have “Performing Arts” in our name for nothing! Dance and Acro classes perform in the Spring Dance Concert in June. In addition to selling tickets to that off-site performance, there is a costume fee between $60-$85 per class due in the fall and we do a fundraiser to help offset the costs for you.
Our music students perform in a recital at the beginning of June and our acting, tumbling, and hand-to-hand combat students present class showcases for friends and family! There is no extra cost for those performances.
What if I’m not sure I want to commit to a class?
We offer one free trial class per student. There is opportunity to take additional trials for $18 each. There’s no commitment! Just register online and in the form, you will have the opportunity to indicate it as a trial class. We won’t charge you a thing…just come to your first class. After class you can stop by the front desk and let us know if you want to enroll. Since you already filled out all the registration info it’s easy peasy!
What if I need to drop a class after I have committed?
We get it. Life happens. We just require 30 days’ notice to inform us that you need to drop. You are welcome to keep attending during that time, we will adjust your final monthly payment to reflect the end of the 30 days. If you have already paid bi-annually or annually, we do not offer refunds, but you can use the money you have paid toward another class or even summer camp in the same fiscal year!
What if we are sick and can’t attend class?
Please stay home if you are sick…but you don’t have to miss class! All our spaces are equipped with high quality computers, cameras, microphones, and TVs for virtual classes! Only registered students can take virtual classes and they are not available for tumbling, acro, or pointe classes for safety reasons. We don’t offer make up classes or refunds if you must miss a class.
Can I watch my child?
We offer two Visitor’s Weeks each year where friends and family are invited into our rooms to observe class. You can come in person or virtually, but classroom visits may only take place during these two weeks. During classes, we invite you to enjoy our café or playroom while you wait for your child.
Do you have summer programs?
You know we do! We offer several options for summer camps in the arts! Kids camps, musical theatre camps, dance intensive training, a camp for teens and young adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities… and more! All the HOT summer info is HERE! https://cavod.org/class_cat/summer-at-cavod/
