AN IMPORTANT GYMNASTICS UPDATE:

To significantly close the gap between income and expenses, we’re making a major organizational change: the Guild will close our satellite facility on Cleveland Highway in April - ending, with a heavy heart, our gymnastics program, although we’ll proudly support our gymnastics program and competition team through until the end of the season. During the holiday closure, we returned our dance program to Waugh Street in a newly renovated space.

There could be no better landlord than Barrett Properties, and Bob Caperton has been incredibly helpful as we looked for a way to help our gymnasts transition and return the dance program to its original studio space. Another exciting community development we would like to share is that Culprit Athletics plans to step into our Cleveland Highway facility when we leave it. The Guild will complete our gymnastics programming as planned in April, the facility will be closed for renovations for the month of May and Culprit Athletics will be reactivating the gymnastics facility in June – so our gymnasts can continue their training without interruption with Culprit Athletics if they choose. We appreciate the community-minded conversations and collaborations that have helped to create such a positive transition for us all.

All of our gymnastics classes and programming will continue through April. Thank you all for your support! Please contact Guild Gymnastics Director Amanda Walker with any questions: amandaw@creativeartsguild.org or 706-259-0093

Guild Policies and Procedures

Registration Fees
Each Visual Arts, Gymnastics, Dance, and Music family is charged a registration fee of $30 per family per year. This fee helps to cover administrative costs, overhead, and to offset the cost of the online registration system throughout the year. This fee also holds your student's spot in their class. Registration fees are billed once yearly per family and covers all members of the household in any Guild classes with which they participate.

Withdrawal Policy
Registering for a class and/or lesson is a commitment to attend as scheduled. Gymnastics are billed in session so the Guild must be notified before the next session begins. If for any reason you or your student cannot continue after the session has started, the student will be responsible for that session's fees.
