SUMMER2022

Charm City Ballet’s summer dance programs offer a full range of instruction taught by CCB’s esteemed faculty as well as distinguished guest artists. Our programs are designed to accommodate all students ages 3 through adult who wish to continue (or begin) their dance training during the summer months. We offer 1-week camps for children and teens, a week-long ballet intensive for more advanced and professional-level dancers, and a full schedule of classes in an ongoing 7-week session. All classes, camps, and intensives are being held in the studio, but virtual options are available.

 
SUMMER REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

**If you are a former CCB student who is/was not enrolled in the Spring 2022 Session, please email charmcityballet@gmail.com before registering for the summer session so that we can re-activate your Jackrabbit account.

 

COVID-19 INFO

Young ballet students in class

IN-STUDIO CLASSES

We will be offering a full schedule of classes, camps, and intensives in the studio this summer! Very strict protocols are still in place, and all dancers/parents/guardians must agree to follow our protocols in order to participate in these classes. Dancers enrolling in in-studio options must understand that at any point, due to a mandate or otherwise, we may switch these classes to virtual classes via Zoom. 

 

PROTOCOLS THAT ARE IN PLACE:

- masks are required, regardless of age or vaccination status, for all people in the building

- physical distancing between participants

- lobby is closed to all parents/guardians/siblings

- strict drop-off and pick-up procedures

- strict cleaning/disinfecting protocols

- no use of the dressing rooms

- CCB imposed capacity restrictions

**ALL PROTOCOLS ARE REASSESED BETWEEN EVERY SESSION

MORE INFO ON MASKS

When everyone wears a mask, everyone is more protected. If there is a specific reason you/your dancer should not wear a mask while dancing, we must know ahead of time and receive a doctor's note. Our instructors have planned classes to accommodate a slow build up to more aerobic activity over time, so dancers will continue to have the opportunity to slowly get used to dancing in a mask and build up their endurance. Teachers will check in with how students are feeling throughout class, and if/when a dancer needs a break from their mask, the teacher will allow them to open the back door in the studio in order to stand outside and get some fresh air without their mask on.​

VIRTUAL OPTIONS

While we do not currently plan on having any solely virtual classes/camps/intensives on the schedule this summer, select classes and both of our intensives are available virtually. Dancers have the option to take any of our in-studio classes (not including Creative Movement and Pre-Ballet) virtually from home, and our Junior Ballet Intensive and Advanced Ballet Intensive have virtual options. That said, students taking classes via Zoom will not get individualized corrections, because our instructors will be focusing on watching the students in the studio. Dancers may need to slightly alter combinations in order to be able to perform them safely at home.

 

Dancers must email charmcityballet@gmail.com after registration to let us know that you plan to take the class or intensive virtually. Class tuition will be discounted 25%. Intensive tuition is also discounted, and the price can be found below.

In order to receive this discount, both students must be enrolled in the same category (camps/intensives OR session classes). Discounts do not apply to drop-in classes.

COLLEGE DISCOUNT: Full-time college students receive a 20% discount on session tuition. Proof of full-time enrollment must be given.

BROTHER DISCOUNT: Brothers of registered students receive 50% off tuition. Brother(s) and sibling(s) must be registered for the same category (camps/intensives OR session classes). This discount is in replace of the family discount and multiple class discount.

PAYMENT INFO

 

​Tuition is payable either in full or in two equal installments.

For camps/intensives, the first installment or full payment is due at registration (which will be charged automatically to your credit card on file with the amount dependent on whether you chose “pay in full” or “split payment”), and the second installment will be due by the first day of the camp or intensive.

For classes, the first installment or full payment is due by the first day of the summer session, June 20th, 2022, and the second installment is due by July 11th, 2022. For session classes, you will receive an email from us when your fees have been posted to your account, and then you can make your payment online via our customer Portal. Though a credit card is given, payment is not made at the time of registration.

TUITION POLICIES

 

Tuition is NON-REFUNDABLE and non-transferable regardless of reason for withdrawal. For dancers who withdraw with less than 1 week notice prior to the start of a camp/intensive, the 1st installment amount (half of the total due) is non-refundable.

 

If in-studio classes need to switch to virtual classes, for any reason, TUITION WILL NOT BE REFUNDED.

OTHER POLICIES

Late registrations for session classes are accepted if there is space in the class, and tuition will be prorated.

 

Classes or camps/intensives not meeting minimum enrollment may be combined or cancelled. A full refund will be given if a camp or class is cancelled.

 

There are no credits or refunds for missed camp/intensive days. We do not offer make-up classes for summer camps/intensives. Dancers who are enrolled in session classes may make up 2 classes (in another level-appropriate class) in the summer session, but make-up classes cannot be carried into the 2022-23 school year.

 

A $15 Late Fee will be assessed for payments made after the due dates. A $25 charge is placed on all declined credit cards and on all returned checks. No exceptions.

COVID-19 RELATED POLICIES

 

Anyone with any symptoms of COVID-19 will not be allowed in our facility. Anyone in contact with someone who has/recently had COVID-19, or anyone who has tested positive, may not come to the facility. 

 

All dancers/parents/guardians must follow our strict drop off and pick up procedures (see here). Masks are required for all students and teachers at all times, regardless of age or vaccination status, and parents/guardians involved in drop off and pick up must also be wearing a mask.

 

Dancers must arrive for class with the following: dance bag, hand sanitizer, tissues, water bottle, mask, dance shoes, and other class items. Extra masks will be available if a dancer breaks their mask, forgets their mask, or if their mask gets wet.

 

We have the right to switch our in-studio classes to virtual classes if at any point we feel it’s necessary or the safest option for our students and teachers. Refunds will not be given.
