CLASS LOCATION

Your continued support during the temporary use of satellites by CCAC is VITAL to both of our organizations’ livelihoods! Thank you!

Our dance classes will take place across the street from the original CCAC building at Bethel Church, 3722 Clifton Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45220, Phone: (513) 975-0554.



WALK-OVER SERVICE FROM FAIRVIEW CLIFTON GERMAN LANGUAGE SCHOOL

If your child is enrolled in our add-on walk-over service, they should report to the Fairview Clifton German Language School office at dismissal.

A dance person will walk children over to Bethel Cincinnati Church at 3:45pm.

YOUR CHILD NEEDS to be on our list, so please do not send your child there unless you have done the add-on service.

Please make sure that your child’s teacher knows that they are to be brought there.

If you have any issues, please contact us directly at 513.494.MLCo (6526)…the front office has quite frequently confused us with the Rec Center and will erroneously say that we’ve already left or didn’t come at all, etc.

If your child is enrolled in a class that begins after 4:00pm, note that we DO NOT have a staff member on duty to babysit while children wait for their later classes. If you would still like to purchase the walkover service add-on, you must trust that your child can behave quietly and respectfully in the hallway by themselves.
