Attendance is taken at the beginning of each class. It is important that your child attends class every week and is on time. Good attendance is imperative. Absences and tardiness not only hold back the individual student but can hold back an entire class.

Classes will be conducted with the doors closed to avoid distracting the students taking class. Parents and siblings will not be permitted in the class but can observe classes through the observation windows on select days.

Please be sure to visit the studio bulletin board regularly to stay informed of what is going on in the studio such as Parent Observation Week and Friendship Week.

Parent Observation - windows into the class room will remain open so that parents and guests can observe the various classes. Parent Observation Week will begin in October and is the last full week of each month.

Friendship Week - there will be 3 designated weeks during the school year when students will be encouraged to "bring a friend" to dance class. You will be notified ahead of time when these classes will be scheduled so that students can invite their friends.
