    Yes, you can absolutely try a class or two before registering! Just stop by the front desk, let us know which class your child would like to try and fill out a trial class waiver.
  • When do classes start? End? Do you have sessions?
    Our regular season begins at the end of August and runs through June. We also offer a 6 week summer session, start and end dates can be found on the “Calendar” page of our website.

    There is no long-term commitment or contract, you can add or drop classes at any time throughout the year. CFDC does require a 30-day written notice via email to terminate membership at the studio. We will no longer accept termination via front desk staff, phone call or phone message. All monthly memberships require a minimum of 30 days written notice (via email) prior to next billing date to ensure cancellation of automatic payments. Cancellation requests submitted within the 30-day billing cycle will result in a final payment drawn from your account on your established auto draft date.
  • What should my child wear to class?
    All class attire requirements are listed on the “Class Descriptions” page on our website. If your child is coming for a trial class there is no need to purchase attire and shoes, he/she may wear comfortable, non-restrictive clothing and go barefoot.
  • How do you determine class placement?
    Our goal is to find the best all-around fit for each student, class placement is based on a variety factors including age, experience and ability.

  • How much are costumes?
    Costume costs vary, but typically range from $88-$95. (Participation in our fall fundraiser can help offset the cost of your child’s costume!)
