CDA TERM 1 NEWS and 2016 DATE CLAIMERS

Hi CDA Families.

The end of Term 1 is nearly here already. It has been a wonderful term for the studio as we welcomed so many new families. Our students have been working extremely well throughout this term and it’s so pleasing to see that all continuing and new students have settled so well into their classes. We would also like to extend a warm welcome to all our new teachers. CDA has an excellent faculty of teachers who are very passionate about dance and ensure each student achieves their personal best, whilst experiencing the "Joy of Dance".

We continue to make improvements to the dancers' studio with the addition of new vents and ceiling insulation this term. We have also repainted much of the interior over the last few weeks. Our next project will be to improve the arrangements for RAD and CSTD examinations.

We would like to apologise to those families that were affected by our online payment system. It stopped working for some unknown reason last month and the provider was not able to fix the problem. We have now moved to a new service provider who seem to have a better integration to our account administration system. Could we ask any families who still have accounts owing to finalise all Term 1 payments no later than Thursday 24th March. Go online or call the office where we can take credit card payment over the phone.

We expect to send out Term 2 invoices this week

CDA’s Jazz, Contemporary and Tap students are preparing for their CSTD Examinations which will be held in May and Sept/Oct this year.
