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.

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.
