In order to learn, execute, and master the art of dance, class presence and participation is vital. However, we understand that circumstances do arise (e.g. illness, Family milestone event, emergencies, etc). Dancers are encouraged to make up missed classes and will need to make a reservation to attend a makeup class. Absences must be called into the Ballet Rincon office. Students arriving after the studio door has been closed by the instructor are tardy, and four tardies per semester is considered one absence. In the event of excessive, unaccounted absences, a dancer may be removed from class enrollment and performance eligibility may be affected.
