Please make sure to have the following available to wear for your dance classes.  Proper attire and shoes are important.

  • Clothes must be form fitting to aid with seeking proper body alignment as well as allowing freedom of movement

ATTENDANCE

Please try to attend every class

  • Please be on time for all classes so as not to hold up the other participants.  We realize sometimes it cannot be helped, but tardiness is disruptive.  Too many absences cause the student to fall behind, resulting in frustration, confusion and at times loss of skills already learned. 
  • Make-up classes are available for missed classes.  It is your responsibility to ask your teacher which class would be appropriate. 
  • If you are unable to attend a make-up class a refund will not be given.  Tuition is to be paid in full, whether or not every class is attended.
  • Please do your best to see that make-ups are not a regular occurrence.  Often times the choreography  differs, this can cause frustration and distraction to the student making up as well as the entire class.
