Ballet Attendance Rules & Expectations Update

  1. Please arrive on time for each class!  For Ballet classes, if you arrive while the class is doing degages, you are late and will not be allowed to join the class that day.  This is to ensure that you do not injure yourself by skipping the VITAL first exercises that warm up the body properly, as well as don’t disturb the class in session.
    • **Exceptions will only be made for one-time emergencies that are called into the studio.
  2. A dancer will be marked present ONLY if they attend from the beginning of class, and stay for a minimum of 75% of class time.  Example: 4:30-5:45 pm class, a dancer leaves at 5:30 at the earliest.
