We do understand that dancers may not be able to make every class/rehearsal due to their FIRST PRIORITY being their PRIMARY dance studio. ALL dancers will be excused from class/rehearsal if they have a prior commitment to their studio. Please understand that tuition will not be pro-rated for any missed classes/rehearsals. Dancers are welcome and encouraged to drop into any drop-in class(es) held during the week to make up for a missed company class/rehearsal. Any choreography taught during a missed class/rehearsal will have to be learned through video prior to returning to rehearsal the following week. Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
