Attendance & Dress Code

ABSENTEE POLICY

Students are expected to attend all classes they are registered for every week. If a student must miss for any reason, it is his/her responsibility to track the absence and schedule a make-up. Make-up classes must be scheduled during the same session that the class was missed and cannot roll over into the next session or be credited toward a future session. Students may schedule a make-up before an absence (i.e. for a scheduled vacation) to keep the make up in the same session, especially if the absence will occur at the end of the session.  Tuition will not be refunded or credited for missed classes, including snow days and holidays during which the studio is closed (including the following holidays: Labor Day, Thanksgiving, MLK Day, Memorial Day) but students may schedule a make-up for any class time missed due to these circumstances. Time off for WBCDA’s Winter and Spring Breaks is already factored into our season and is therefore not available for make-up classes.

DRESS CODE/ATTIRE REQUIREMENTS

Attire for class should be appropriate for the respective form of dance. Classical ballet classes require pink tights, leotards (color specific to level placement noted below), skirts (optional), and hair in a bun. Short hair must be pulled back and secured away from face. Modern and Jazz classes require leotard and tights or appropriate form-fitting work out attire with hair pulled back in a pony tail or bun. No loose fitting clothes should be worn to dance classes, as the teachers need to see student’s bodies to give proper training and corrections.

*For the safety of our teachers and students as of August 2020 masks must be worn in ALL live studios classes.  If a student is unable to wear a mask for the entirety of class they should not attend live class- zoom options are available.  There will be no exceptions to this new rule!
