It is considered an absence if a student is not present, is not wearing appropriate dance wear/footwear, sits out of class for 15 minutes or more because of injury or illness, arrives 15 minutes or more late, or must leave 15 minutes or more before the end of class.
If a student is “absent” for 2 classes in a row, a make-up lesson may be scheduled at the private lesson cost of $20.00 per ½ hour.
A student may not be allowed back to class until this make-up lesson is taken.
