Policies & Procedures


  • Parents should park in the lot across the street, and walk over to drop off and pick up students under the age of 12. Please do not enter the lobby until class ends. We will open lobby door at beginning and end of class times. Parents must come briefly inside the lobby to retrieve their child.

  • If it is raining or dark outside, please form a carpool line and drive by and drop off your child by the door. Teen drivers should park in the lot by the door​

  • As soon as it gets dark, CBT locks the front glass doors, unless there are parents on the front porch. If you need to come into the studio please gently knock on the side door on the east end of the building.

  • CBT guarantees 15 weeks of classes and we will go online if needed. There are no refunds in the event online is ever deemed necessary. Our online classes are fantastic, and we appreciate your support to keep the teachers paid and the school going.

  • In the event of a serious weather condition, call our office one hour prior to your class time at (901)921-0388 for a recorded message.

  • There are no make-up classes.

  • For privacy of our instructors, we ask that you contact Ms. Mary info@balletchildren.com or                                    Ms. Kendra kendra@childrensballettheater.com instead of your dance instructor, if you have a question. We can also set up meetings with your teacher. For urgent situations please call the school at 901-921-0388.



At this time we will be following the guidelines below based on information gathered from the medical community and Shelby County. We will make new assessments with new changes. With recommendations from the CDC, we want to provide an update for Spring semester at our studio on White Station Rd, to all until the health recommendations change. If you attend any satellite locations, please follow that school’s recommendations. We ask that you please follow these protocols:

  • Masking is recommended at this time. We are asking for indoor masking in the lobby for all teachers, staff, students, and visitors to the school, regardless of vaccination status. We ask that anyone who is showing any symptoms of COVID-19 to PLEASE stay home, and get a COVID test if needed.

  • There is a CDC recommendation, for vaccinated people or not, who have a known exposure to someone with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 to be tested.

  • We ask students to please use the hand sanitizer upon entering the dance studio. I understand the symptoms of COVID-19 and that my child will be required to stay home and notify CBTS if I or my child experience symptoms and/or a positive test. I understand that all members of my child’s class will need to be notified. Indemnification and Hold Harmless: At this time, we will continue to not have parents in the lobby, except for use of the bathroom. We need one helper with preballet class each week. Please sign up with your teacher to do this. You will take turns each week so that everyone can assist the teacher with bathroom breaks and to have a chance to observe class. Please feel free to relax on the front porch, or out in the playground, go shopping, or remain in your car. Please take your child to the bathroom before class. Please let your dancer know that your instructors will wear a mask anytime they are within 6 feet of any dancer.
