Studio Assignments: Rooms are assigned on a first-come basis according to the number of people involved and the nature of the usage e.g. dance class requiring dance studio; music rehearsal requiring piano; art class requiring natural light.

Non-Profit Free Use: Non-profit organization can reserve studio space for meeting/rehearsal use at no charge depending on availability and if no admission, donation or fee of any kind is charged. These reservations only apply during CAC BUSINESS HOURS. A reservation does not guarantee a specific studio and the CAC reserves the right to cancel a reservation for any reason with a 48 hours advance notice.

After Hour Fee: Studio rentals (including free non-profit reservations) will be available at the designated start time and not before. All studios must be vacated at the rental finish time (this includes all clean up). The Community Arts Center exterior doors will be locked promptly at the end of each business day or at the time the rental is scheduled to end. Failure to comply with rental start time and end time will result in a $15/hour charge that must be paid prior to any subsequent usage.

No Show Policy: If an organization does not show for a reservation, there will be a $15 cancellation fee. Fee must be paid prior to any subsequent usage.
