Health Guidelines

CPYB Faculty and Staff are committed to the safety and wellbeing of all students and will work with students to ensure the healthiest environment. Students should arrive at the CPYB 5-Week Summer Ballet Program in good physical condition and free of injuries. Given the physical demands of this program, injuries can occur. 

Students requiring medical attention while participating in the 5-Week Summer Ballet Program should immediately contact a CPYB Staff Member (residential, administrative, or faculty) who will assist in getting the needed help.

3-Step Health Form Package

All students must complete and submit the required health forms prior to arriving on campus. The 3-Step Health Form Package must be filled out by a parent or guardian if the student is under the age of 18. It is very important that all questions be carefully completed. Please keep in mind that insufficient information may hinder medical treatment in the event of an emergency.

Basic medications that you allow your child to take, including Tylenol, Advil, Pepto-Bismol, Midol, etc. must be listed on your student’s form.

Additionally, the Physician Evaluation Form must be completed and signed by a licensed Health Care Practitioner, and dated within one year of the start of the Program.


Access to Medical Care

All students staying in the Dickinson College residence halls will have access to an on-site licensed nurse consultant for medical care. Charges for doctor’s visits will be paid directly to the provider. Non-dorm students must make their own arrangements for all medical care. The nurse consultant does not provide medical care for non-dorm students.

Wellness Services for All CPYB Summer Students:

On-site physical therapy is available by the licensed professionals of Cardin & Miller Physical Therapy. Students are seen by appointment only and must sign up for an appointment time. Each visit is $20 and all students must have a signed physical therapy consent form in order to make an appointment with the PT. PT is available Monday - Friday from 6 - 8 p.m. and Saturday 9 a.m.- 12 noon at CPYB Warehouse Studios.

On-site massage therapy is available by a licensed massage therapist. Students are seen by appointment only and must sign up for an appointment time. Each visit is $20. Massage therapy is typically available Monday-Friday from 6-8 p.m. at CPYB Warehouse Studios.

Fees for physical therapy and massage therapy sessions will be charged within one week of the appointment to the financial information provided in the student's family portal.

Medical Care for Residential Students:

The nurse consultant is available to provide in-person care for dorm students from 7:30-11 a.m. Monday-Friday and 6-9:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday in Adams Hall.

Each consultation is $20. This fee will be charged within one week following the consultation to the financial information provided in the student's family portal.

If a residential student needs medical attention beyond basic first aid, the student will be referred by the nurse consultant to AllBetterCare Urgent Care Center, UPMC Pinnacle Carlisle or the appropriate specialty practice. Fees for medical services are the responsibility of the student and their parents. 

Residence life staff members will accompany residential students to all appointments not taking place at the residence halls. All appointments will be scheduled by the Nurse Consultant. Under no circumstances are parents/guardians to make appointments for any student staying in the residence halls. All students will be treated per the "Care Plan of Action/Permission to Provide Care" policy agreed to at the time on the Health Form Package.

To discuss a student’s medical concern while they are attending CPYB, parents should call the medical entity (or physician) your child was treated by.



Students who require routine daily medication must be determined responsible enough by their parents to perform this task on their own without supervision. CPYB, Dickinson Faculty, Staff or Residence Staff will not administer medication for any student at any time, nor will they supervise any student taking medication. All medication administration will be the responsibility of the student for whom it is prescribed. Prescription medications must be kept in the possession of the student for whom they are prescribed. Over-the-counter medications that a student may need during the summer intensive will be the responsibility of each individual student. Under no circumstances should students share their medication with other students.

It is the responsibility of students and their parents to determine whether their insurance will cover any and all services that are recommended or provided during their participation in the CPYB 5-Week Summer Ballet Program.
