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). Each dancer is allowed one excused absence, per class or rehearsal, per semester. Dancers are encouraged to make up any absences by either taking a similar (or lower) level class that meets at a different time. For dancers that are participating in our performances, we require a Performer Contract to be on file (see below). In the event of excessive, unaccounted absences, a dancer may be removed from a performance role. As always, we understand that each situation is different. Please contact us to discuss any extenuating circumstances.
