Attendance Policies & Absences


May 17, 2022 07:22 PM



Our full dance season runs September - June. Those who enroll during this time are participating in all classes and related events, performances and activities for the full dance season. This is a full season dance commitment and as such our financial and attendance policies are based on this. We may sometimes offer classes that are not part of this full season such as our summer programs, mini dance sessions and other types of lessons. Such programs will be paid in full upon enrollment and differs from our full dance season experience. Payment can be made in full, in advance or monthly for our full season dance experience. Related policies apply and are subject to change.

All students are expected to attend every class and participate accordingly. In some case, due to an injury you may need to observe class. Please arrive 5 minutes prior to the class start time prepared for the class with proper attire and shoes.
If you are going to be late, please contact your teacher on BAND.

If a student is absent, please update your Parent Portal as soon as possible. You may also contact your teacher on BAND about any absences expected or unexpected. Please report these as it can impact the class lesson planned and in certain situations we may need to cancel class if we do not have minimum required.

Attendance is crucial during rehearsals and during the second half of the year when Showcase dances are being taught.
Multiple absences may jeopardize your participation in related performances.
Please do not come to class if you are sick or have been around anyone with a contagious illness (refer to our Studio Safety Guidelines/Checklist)
Any studio injuries and accidents must be reported to the teacher and via email as soon as possible.
If you have an injury outside of the studio or experiencing some pain, please advise your teacher and email the studio owner
Any injuries will need a doctor's note to resume dance activities
