CAPA is OPEN on Labor Day
Just a quick note to let everyone know that CAPA does hold classes on Labor Day, and on most Monday holidays in order to keep the total number of Monday classes equal to the rest of the week. Absences on holidays are not considered unexcused, however. Have a fabulous weekend and we hope to see you on Monday if you have class!
Registration is still open for the upcoming school year…just click here! The Fall Session began on August 25th and there are still a few spots left in some classes. You can tell if there are openings in any given class if there is a “Register” button next to the class name on the schedule here on the site. If there is no “Register” button, that means the class is full.
CAPA News 8/19: Summer break this week; tuition; summer cards
Greetings from CAPA! We hope you all have had a fantastic summer, and we can’t wait to see you next week. As a reminder, CAPA is closed this week, and our fall schedule begins next Monday, August 25th. If you haven’t yet registered for the fall, there are still spots available in some classes, although many are full. You can register directly from our schedule…the link is above under “CAPA Schedule.”
For those of you registered for fall classes, next week we will be charging the first of ten equal monthly tuition payments for the school year, as well as a $20 costume deposit for each class performing in the June Showcase. For detailed information on CAPA tuition, see links above.
If you are in one of our Ensembles or Ballet Companies for the upcoming school year, we will be auditing everyone’s summer requirement cards and comparing them to our roll sheets this week to check that summer class requirements have been fulfilled. If you forgot to leave your summer card in the box at CAPA, please take a photo of it and email it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks everyone!

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!
