Summer is a great time to try something new, or get back into something you used to do! With seven single weeks of classes, we can accommodate even the busiest schedules.

Summer Schedule: Classes are offered in single week sessions, most meeting M-Th in a single week. There will be seven separate, non-cumulative weeks of classes. Age groups and levels are combined for summer. Current students stay at their current level for summer, do not move to a higher level. Ask for placement if needed.

Registration: Registration for summer classes and camps can be done online IF you are planning to pay in full through DSP. If you do not have a DSP account, please click here to make an account and get started. If you are wanting to set up a payment plan for the summer or pay with cash or check, please download the fillable registration form, complete it, and email it to CGPAC1@gmail.com or drop it off in person. We will reach out to you with more information regarding your payment plan.

Cancellations/Refunds: Since we have minimum enrollment requirements, we recommend that you register at least 3 weeks prior to the start date of any class. Classes with insufficient registration will be canceled one week prior to each start date (full refund given). Classes dropped within one week of the start date will be given account credit for future use, and no refunds/credits will be given once a class has started.

Summer Drop-In Classes

We understand that summer can be a crazy time of year, and it's not always possible to get 4 days in a row to come to class. Don't worry. You can now register for drop-ins for summer classes*.

"How do I register for single day drop-ins?"

(watch the video for a tutorial, or read instructions below!)

1. Open your DSP account (or make one!)

2. In the menu, select "register for classes"

3. Once you find the class you're looking for, you'll see 2 options: enroll (all 4 days) or pick drop in days (select whichever days you want!)

4. Hit submit and complete registration!

*Swing Choir Dance 2 (audition prep class), Musical Theatre Camps 1 & 2, and HS Musical Theatre Clinic are NOT available for individual days.

"I can't select drop-in classes for weekly class sessions later this summer. Is that a mistake?"

No, this is correct. We will make decisions about what is going to run the week before those classes run. So if you're trying to make a drop-in registration for week 6, you will need to wait until we get closer to that time to see if the class will actually run!

Build Your Summer Bundle!

We are offering new Summer Bundles to turn your camps/classes into a full day of fun. Check out the options below for your extended day bundles! 

REGISTRATION: sign up for each camp or class on DSP, and then please add the "Bundle: Supervised Lunch" class to your registration (free of cost) so we have your child on the list!
