Greetings! Although our session runs for the entire school year, CAPA is accepting new students in classes that have openings until mid-January. After that, we will be ordering costumes and preparing for our annual June Showcase. Click here to see our school year schedule and to register. Classes with at least one open spot have a “Register” link next to them. Tuition is billed at $56/month per hour of class, with volume discounts offered for individuals and families with a combined number of hours exceeding five hours a week. Happy dancing!
Download the CAPA app!
We are kind of excited about this…CAPA now has a smartphone app! Yep, there’s an app for that. 🙂 Now, with just a couple of taps from your phone, you can access your dancer’s schedule (raise your hand if you’ve ever forgotten what time her class ends…), send us an email about an absence, check our calendar, see our latest news, register for classes, update your credit card info, and more! You can also receive “push notifications,” such as upcoming closures, holidays, ticket sales, rehearsal reminders, etc. (we highly recommend saying “yes” when it asks you if you will allow push notifications…that way, reminders and such will automatically pop up on your screen. We promise not to overuse them!). All of this can now happen from your phone’s home screen. To download, just click on the links below. You only have to log in once, using the email and password combo you created when you created your CAPA account. After that, everything is just a tap away!
What to do with old dance shoes??
Many times, your child will outgrow her dance shoes before they are worn out. If you would like to donate your outgrown shoes to a younger dancer (or just one with smaller feet), please leave them in the labeled bin in Dressing Room B (next to Studio B). Then, when your daughter needs a new pair, see if there’s a pair in the box that fit! Reduce, re-use, recycle.
Safety issues in CAPA parking lot
It’s very important to us that children be safe in our parking lot. If you are dropping off or picking up a student at CAPA, please do not stop your car in front of the entrance. This not only creates a traffic backup, but also creates a visual barrier that is very unsafe if a child runs out from in front of your stopped vehicle. Imagine you are stopped in front of the door “just for a second,” and the person behind you is in a hurry, and they pull around you, and at the same moment a child runs out from in front of your idling car directly into the path of the car pulling around you. None of us want to see that happen. Even if you are just dropping off or picking up kids waiting outside, please pull into a parking spot or pull into the alley in front of the breezeway. Drive slowly and be very aware when pulling out that kids are everywhere! Also, please ask your children to wait inside where it’s safe and warm after dark, and if they are going to wait outside, to please keep a jacket or sweatshirt in their dance bag so they don’t catch cold. Many dancers are coming out of a strenuous class, hot and sweaty, and waiting outside in very cold weather for their moms to pick them up. We want to keep them healthy and safe!
