Welcome to CEG Performing Arts Academy

CEG Policies & Rules


Attendance is mandatory for all CEG classes, any group class that is Missed by the student, CEG Academy will not credited it to the next month of class and cannot be made up. All missed classes must be paid in full. The importance of attending class on a regular basis cannot be stressed enough! As with anything else, what you put into something will determine what you get out of it. Absenteeism will only slow down your progress as well as the progress of the class. We are very interested in developing your talents to your fullest potential; therefore, your attendance is expected at each scheduled class and lesson. Students will be charged for missed classes. Make-up classes are available. It is the responsibility of the student to take advantage of the policy. Please arrive early and give yourself enough time to get ready for class. If a student arrives late it is disruptive to the class and the student may miss an important aspect of the lesson. Please pick up students immediately after class. Children should not be left unattended at the studio. Parents are requested to pick up their children inside the studio. At no time are students permitted to wait for their parents outside. This is for your child's safety. Please notify the school if you are going to be late picking up your child from class so proper supervision of your child can be arranged.


Students need to give their instructors a minimum of a 48-hour notice to receive a make-up class pass. A maximum of 4 absences per year can be made-up with another similar class. Students have two weeks from the date of absence to make-up their class. If make-up does not occur within the two-week period, he or she then forfeits the make-up opportunity. Credits or refunds will not be given. Part of a student's attendance is being on time. Dance students are expected to arrive 10-15 minutes prior to class to properly stretch and warm up so as to prevent any unnecessary injuries. If a student arrives more than 10 minutes after the start of class, the instructor may have him or her sit and observe and not participate. Please make sure you're on time to class. We care about your well being.


Will be made-up for excused absences only, illness, (verified by a doctor's note), a death in the family, or a religious activity. Make-up lessons need to be scheduled within two weeks of the missed lesson and are limited to 1 excused absence per semester. Credits or refunds will not be given. Pre-paid tuition for private classes is due upon registration and will only be used for make-up classes. Three paid in full class deposits is needed.Pre-paid tuition are Not Refundable. If you are late for your scheduled lesson you are obligated to pay for your class in full and only receive the remainder amount of time left of your lesson. No Extra time will be added. Once your private lesson is scheduled, you cannot reschedule unless you notify us within 24-hour notice of your appointment. All makeup classes shall be rescheduled with in the two-week period of the missed class date for private classes. No Exceptions. If you missed your lesson without notifying us first at least 24 hours in advance, the lesson must still be paid in full and will be deducted from your Pre-paid tuition payment. Students can obtain a make-up class pass at the office for private classes missed by the student. Private lesson students must give the office a minimum of 24-business hour notice receive a make-up lesson. Private lessons can only be made-up a maximum of 3 times a semester per student.


Pre-School Students can use up to 5 make up class passes a year for missed classes. Parents must use the make up passes within 2 weeks of the date of absence. Credits or refunds will not be given.


We will only cancel classes if we have under 3 people in each class. If you are enrolled in a canceled class you will be placed on a waiting list until the class has over 3 people registered. If their is a shortage of students in your classes, and you have already paid for your classes in full (we will honor your classes you paid for), but as a private half hour lesson.  

If it begins to snow or weather is bad, please check the website 1 hour prior to class time for an update on Closings.  We will post it on the website first and then leave a message on the school answering machine. If weather is bad in your area, please use your own discretion for safety.  Please understand that our decision for closing is based on many factors and often not the present conditions.   Teachers come from many areas and many teenagers drive to their classes.  Often if the School District of Philadelphia is closed due to bad weather, we are also closed as well. Our policy is Safety First.

Makeup policy:   CEG will always honor any classes that are canceled due to weather or unforeseen circumstances.  Students may stop by the office to schedule a makeup and fill out a makeup form at least 48 hours prior to the makeup.  Makeup requests will not be handled over the telephone.  No refunds or credits will be given.

CEG Performing Arts Academy COMPANY
This is a prestigious, audition based student-performing group of singers, dancers, models and actors. Students perform upon invitation by companies, community organizations, local schools, parades, talent showcases and churches. Dance Company rehearses once a week on Friday nights. Drama and Music company rehearsals are tailored to meet specific requests. Audition based only!

Four times a year students are invited to participate in our Fall, Winter, Spring, and Summer musical showcases. All the students are offered the opportunity to perform in our recital providing they have attended classes regularly. All students must attend a minimum of 12 classes per Fall session and minimum 10 classes in Winter and Spring Semesters, in order to perform with their class in all of the showcases during the year.

Students are encouraged to bring a friend to class and share their CEG experience. They will need a Guest Pass to be allowed to take the one class for Free. We will offer a CEG Membership monthly package to them and If your Friend signs up for classes at CEG, you will receive 20% off your next monthly tuition payment. Your Guest is only allowed One Guest Pass per month for that one class. Students must bring in a different Guest Every Month. Guest Offer only good for Group Classes Only.

Parents are not allowed in the classrooms while class is going on. Parents may observe from the lobby but we ask for your cooperation in not disturbing the students by waving or banging on the glass. This disrupts the class by distracting the students and the instructor. Permission to observe classes other than those specifically designated for observation may be obtained by special arrangement with the office and should be scheduled in advance. One class each semester will be designated for observation by parents, family and guests. Guests are welcome to bring cameras and/or video recorders. Parents, family and guests are allowed in the lobby only. This is also the only place where dancers may warm up and focus prior to class, so please be considerate. Chatting should be kept to a minimum, and voices should be modulated to prevent disrupting classes.

Please let us know if there is a class you would be interested in taking at a different day or time than is indicated on the schedule. CEG Performing Arts Academy will place you on our interest list. We have been able to add additional class times in the past based on interest.


Be sure to label your dancewear so we can return it to you if left at the studio. We are not responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged articles of clothing, jewelry, or other personal property.


Outside the dance room, there is a bulletin board that will have updated information each month. Please take time to read this information carefully.


Young students need to maintain their focus in class, therefore it is very important to keep distractions to a minimum. Please have your child take care of any restroom needs prior to class. We know parents enjoy watching their youngsters, but we ask that you please not stand at the studio doorway during class. Young students end up focusing on the doorway rather than the teacher. Teachers often invite parents in at the end of class to show what they’ve learned.

We appreciate your cooperation and look forward to having your student in our academy!
