We fully understand that students enroll in other activities. However, we expect a level of commitment from each student in order for them to progress and develop within their class. If classes are missed due to a student taking on other commitments, then their place in dance class may not be guaranteed. This is very important during recital preparation.
Student absences will be recorded. Dancers who miss less than 3 classes or have perfect attendance will be awarded at the conclusion of the annual recital.
If more than 3 consecutive absences occur, it is possible that dancers may be asked to forfeit their spot in that dance class or schedule private makeup classes with their teacher for an additional cost.
Anytime an absence occurs, students are responsible to learn what was missed before the next class, either with a private lesson or from a friend. Students must arrive on time for class. Missing the first part of class causes the students to miss stretches and warm up which can lead to injuries.
Missed classes may be made up. Students may make up a missed class by taking a similar or different class within one month of a missed class. There are no refunds for missed classes. Most class levels are offered several times per week.
Class Cancellations – Classes cancelled due to inclement weather will be announced via email and on our Facebook page at least one hour prior to class.
