Class “Make up” Policy
Only excused absences will be eligible to makeup. For an absence to be considered excused, a parent needs to email the front desk of the location the student attends prior to the start of the class. Students may make up excused absences in classes at, or one level below, their current level at the location in which they are registered. All make ups must be completed before the current session ends. Make ups must be scheduled with the front desk to ensure there is room in the class and the teacher is made aware of the additional student.
Exception: Spring Session – no make ups are allowed as our students will be rehearsing their dances for our Spring Showcase during their class time
