Attendance is a crucial part of becoming proficient in any activity. And while we do understand that from time to time you may not be able to make a class we do encourage 100% attendance. We encourage ALL students to attend class on a regular basis so as not to fall behind or hold the class up. Please call the studio ahead if you will not be in class and notify us of any extended illnesses. We do not give out attendance awards.

Each class in the semester is designed to build upon the previous class. Please allow extra time for changing and putting shoes on (especially in the winter). Each class includes an important warm up. Missing this may lead to injury. Any student missing more than 15 minutes of class may be asked to sit out if crucial warm ups are missed. If you anticipate being late, please call so that we may have an assistant help the student warm up while the class continues.

A detailed handbook is provided when you sign up for class.
