Attending class is very important for dancers. Each week we will learn new skills or new sections of the recital dance. If a dancer misses a class and wishes to make up the class, please contact the studio for make-up options. Make-ups are not required.



Please keep your dancer home if they are experiencing a runny nose, fever, cough, sore throat, headache, stomach ache, etc.


We ask that dancers who test positive for covid stay out of class for 5-7 days after testing. We ask dancers who show signs of covid to please stay home.
