Attendance and Punctuality

Students are encouraged to be punctual and regular in their attendance. Late arrivals of more than 15 minutes must observe the remainder of the class rather than participate so as to avoid injury and avoid disrupting the class in progress. Parents are also encouraged to play an active role in helping their student(s) achieve and maintain their interest in dance. Good attendance will help promote their personal growth and self-confidence in class. Arriving on time is important for all.



Class placement is based on age and ability that best serves the individual needs of each dancer. After observation, the faculty may advise an appropriate level different than that of a student’s age group.
