Attendance is imperative! Give us advance notice by phone for an absence or tardy, so we can be prepared in class. Absences and tardiness can have a negative effect on the entire class. Classes missed for sickness, personal vacation, etc. may be made up in an age appropriate class within 15 days of the absence. It is the responsibility of the parent to notify the front desk 24 hours prior to a makeup class. Advance notice is required to allow our staff to find the correct make-up class for your student.
WEEKLY DANCE/GYM ATTIRE
It’s important for students abide by a dress code policy for the following reasons: A neat and tidy appearance sets an attitude of attentiveness and respect for students, instructors, and the art of dance and gymnastics.

Hair must be properly secured and tied up off of the face and neck.
