Attendance

Students should arrive on time and be prepared for class.

Students must have the proper dance and acrobatic attire to participate in class.

Students must attend class on a regular basis to maintain and improve skills and technique.

Please call the studio to notify us if your child will not be attending class that day.

NO CREDITS OR REFUNDS WILL BE GIVEN FOR MISSED CLASSES.

Any classes missed due to illness or inclement weather can be made up.

Please call the studio and our office staff will help you find an appropriate make-up class.
