Holiday Recitals

In order to celebrate our youngest dancers and the holiday season, we will be having our Holiday Recital in December for our Movement for Children, Dance I, Dance II, and Dance III classes.  Please visit our Holiday Recital page for more details.  (Movement for Toddler classes do NOT perform.)

  • We will have four “shows” during the week of December 7-10.
  • Your dancer will NOT have their regular class that week if they are performing in the Holiday show.
  • The performance takes the place of your final class for the semester.
  • Teachers will provide more information regarding holiday costumes in November.
  • Holiday costume fees typically range from $5-$20 depending on teacher selections.
  • Your dancer will perform the same night of the week that they usually have class.
  • Shows will begin at 6pm each evening and should last approximately 45 minutes to an hour.
  • Dancers will arrive at 5:45pm.
  • No tickets will be necessary although we do request that you consider bringing a donation for the Central Missouri Humane Society.
  • You may bring your video cameras and regular cameras.
  • No professional video will be available for purchase.

CPAC Rec Team Members Announced

Under the direction of Lisa Geger, we are excited to announce the team members of our newest competitive group “CPAC Rec”!  This group is by audition only and is for dancers ages 11 and over who wish to compete at a recreational level.  Congratulations to all of you and best of luck on your first season.

Parking & Traffic

For dancers’ safety, please remember to only drop off and pick up dancers at either of the North doors (facing Rock Bridge High School) OR the South door (by the brick columns).

Please enter and exit from our facility using the one-way North driveway (west to east), through the South lot by Jimmy Johns, or the East drive by the soccer field.  Please do not use the West entrance to our parking lot or drive between our building and the one story building behind us.  Due to a new tenant behind our building, parking and traffic is extremely congested there.  That area should only be used by our Staff.  The safety of your children is most important to us.

Just a quick clarification regarding the traffic flow on the North side of the CPAC building (the side that faces RBHS with the tall white columns).  Traffic flows ONE WAY through the semi-circle drive from west to east.  Cars should enter from the West (closest to Commerical Drive) and exit to the East (toward the East wing of the building).  Do not enter the semi-circle drive by the East wing.  Please assist us in keeping traffic flowing smoothly and minimizing congestion.  The new driveway on the East end of the building (nearest the soccer field) is for two way traffic to access the rear of the building.

Monthly Finance Charges

Any tuition balances remaining will incur a 10% MONTHLY finance charge until the tuition fees are paid in full.  All account balances must be paid in full by April 1st.


Please familiarize yourself with our online account access.  You can make payments, view your child’s schedule and update your contact information at your convenience!  Simply visit our website at, click “Login” in the upper right corner, and enter your email address and password (or request a password with just one click).



In order to alleviate congestion and hopefully minimize your wait time, we ask that you attend the on the day indicated below according to your last name.  Of course, if you cannot attend on your scheduled day, please feel free to attend on one of the other days.  We appreciate your patience in advance as we work to get everyone outfitted and equipped for the upcoming year.  We strongly encourage you to purchase these items prior to the first week of class to minimize congestion, etc.
