Dance Uniform Requirements &
Class Attendance Policy

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Absences:

  • A student is allowed a maximum of three absences per semester. A reminder of our policy will be issued after two absences occur. After three absences the teacher will contact parent/guardian or the student to discuss the student's continuation of the class and if any changes need to be made.

 

  • Please contact the teacher directly before class (if possible) if you will be absent for any reason. (Phone numbers will be provided.)

 

  • A teacher may have two absences OR the school may cancel classes twice without scheduling a makeup class. If there are more than two absences/cancellations either a substitute for that class time OR a makeup class is guaranteed.

 

Dress Code for the Arts Program Dance Classes

 

Please note: dance wear items you already own may not comply—you may wear them. But any future purchases of dance attire should fit these requirements. 

 

Thank you
