We always give a 10-minute leeway for unexpected delays. If a student arrives to class more than 10 minutes late, there will be no admittance onto the dance floor.
This policy is in place for two main reasons:
• A late arrival means that the student has missed warm-ups, which are very important to help prevent injuries.
• Late arrivals disrupt the class in progress.
In case of a late arrival, it is still very important to come anyways and watch class from the lobby, while taking notes, and recording video of new choreography and/or techniques. This way, the student will still benefit from instructions given, and new things being taught.
If a student has an injury, or is feeling mildly ill, it is still important to come to class and watch instruction/choreography from the lobby. If it is at all possible to come, please try to come to avoid falling behind in class.
If you have to miss class, you may schedule a ½-hour private lesson to get caught up with your class. The cost for a ½-hour private lesson is $35. Visit our RATES page for more info.
