Why should I choose CCD?

At CCD, we believe every student deserves the absolute best dance education, regardless of age, ability, aspiration, or socio-economic status.  Our program is designed to give students the highest quality dance education in both classic and contemporary styles in a friendly and warm environment.  Our syllabus is designed to build strength and versatility in every dancer, allowing each dancer to work in the healthiest, most kinesthetically aware way.  At CCD, we truly believe that dance is for everyone and that art can foster community, create positive influence, and inspire the individual, and our faculty, staff, and families reflect every aspect of that belief.

Where are you located?

CCD's studios are located in Broomfield, CO, right off of highway 36.  For complete directions and map, click here.

How do I enroll in a class?

Your first step in enrolling in a class is to fill out our Pre-Registration Form.  In this form, you'll answer questions letting us know how old your student is, what type of dance experience he or she has had (if any), along with any other information you would like us to know.  From there, a CCD staff member will contact you to set up a trial class.  This class is designed to be an opportunity for your student to see if he or she enjoys the class, as well as an opportunity for a CCD director to assess your student to be sure he or she is placed in the correct level (for students over the age of 6).  For students under the age of 6, he or she will be placed in the appropriate level without an assessment.

After receiving your assessment, you can then enroll your student in the appropriate level through the front desk at 303-466-5685 or email at info@ccdance.org.

How will I know what level to enroll in?

After filling out the Pre-Registration Form, interested students over the age of 6 will be asked to come take a trial class in which a CCD director will assess the student.  From there, you will be contacted with your students level placement, along with a list of all of the classes available for that level.  This process is incredibly important in making sure each student is placed in the correct level, keeping students healthy and learning in the best possible environment.  Students under the age of 6 will be placed in the Early Dance program based on their age.

How do I change or drop a class?

If, for some reason, you need to change your students class or drop a class, visit the front desk, call us at 303-466-5685, or email at info@ccdance.org.  In order to avoid being charged for the next month, a class much be changed or drop before the 20th of the month prior.

What are the fees to enroll?

Fees for classes vary based on level and number of hours per week.  For a complete break down of monthly tuition per class, visit out Tuition Tables.  In addition to this monthly payment, each student will be required to pay a registration fee of $30 once per season (our fall/spring season and our summer season).

For adult students, we offer a punch card system for 5, 10, or 15 classes and expire 6 months after purchase date.  A $30 registration fee is due one time with your 2013-2014 registration paperwork.  For more information on punch cards, visit out Tuition Tables.

What is your tuition policy?

When paying tuition at CCD for the fall/spring season, you have two options - you are able to pre-pay four months at a time at a 5% discounted rate or you can pay monthly.  If paying monthly, tuition is due on the first of the month.  You will not receive a bill or monthly statement.  Auto-pay is an option which we would be happy to set up for you and would be deducted on the first of every month.  Tuition received after the 5th of the month will result in a $10 late fee.  Postmarks will not be considered in determining the late status of payments.  Tuition can be paid by check or credit card.  Checks can be brought directly to CCD and put in the tuition box to the left of the front desk or can be mailed to 3001 Industrial Lane #12, Broomfield, CO 80020.  Credit cards can be Visa or Mastercard and can be used over the phone or by visiting the front desk.  Under no circumstances will CCD refund or credit paid tuition.  For complete breakdown of tuition and policies, visit our Tuition page.

At CCD, we believe that everyone should have access to quality dance education regardless of age, ability, or aspiration.  Our scholarship and tuition assistance programs are designed to ensure no one gets turned away.  For full information on our scholarship and tuition assistance program and to find an application, visit our Scholarships page.

What is your holiday schedule?

CCD maintains a very similar schedule to the school system.  We close for Labor Day, Memorial Day, a two week Winter Break, and a week long Spring Break.  During these holidays, we often have Interim classes for our students.  Click here to view a complete calendar.

How will I be informed about closures due to inclement weather?

In the situation of dangerous weather conditions, CCD will cancel classes in order to keep our students and staff safe.  Closures will be posted by 8 am for morning classes and 2 pm for afternoon classes.  All school closures will be posted on the home page of the website.  Students will also be informed via email sent to the email address provided in registration paperwork.  Additionally, a CCD staff member will change the voice message recording to inform families about any closures.

If your class is canceled due to inclement weather, you will always be able to do a make up class within a month of the school closure.  Students can make up in any class of their level or a level below.  We strongly encourage students to make up missed classes.  In order to set up a make up class, complete an Absence & Make Up Form.

Do you offer trial classes?

We would be happy to offer a free trial class prior to enrolling your student in a new class!  In order to schedule your trial class, fill out our Pre-Registration Form.  A CCD staff member will reach out to you within a few days to set up an appropriate trial class and we'll have you dancing here in no time!

Do you offer evaluations for students?

We offer biannual evaluations for students in all levels excluding adults.  In these evaluations, student will receive feedback from their teachers, as well as their placement for the upcoming season (fall/spring or summer).  These evaluations give students the opportunity to be proud of their progress throughout the year, give parents an insight into their students' time in class, and opens the door to communication with CCD directors.
