It is the parent’s responsibility to be aware of all school activities, closed dates, etc. Communications will primarily occur through emails and posted notices in the lobby of the Studio. Parents, or adult students, must inform the Studio of any address, email, or telephone number changes.

SUBSTITUTIONS
The Studio reserves the right to provide a substitute teacher if the regularly scheduled teacher is ill or otherwise unable to teach classes.

ATTENDANCE
When you register your child for a class, it is assumed they will remain in that class from the time of registration - May. Students can only learn by attending class regularly, therefore, attendance is crucial. Excessive absences from a class could lead to the dancer being removed from the Spring Concert.
