As with any program, consistent attendance is a requirement for success. Consistently missing class may result in a change of class level or removal from a class performance. Guardians are responsible for communicating absences by emailing the studio or communicating with the dance instructor.

Reach out to the studio for your child specific makeup class options as needed. A makeup class can be attended for every class missed by a student until the end of the semester. Each semester new attendance records will be initiated and kept. 

Visitors

I understand that watching a dance class can be distracting or intimidating to any or all of the students. I also understand that space is limited in the dance room and cannot always accommodate parents or visitors to watch class. I will reach out to The Oaks Dance Studio for permission and instructions on watching a class to ensure that the dancers feel confident, safe, and prepared for class each day. I understand that permission will not always be granted but that The Oaks Dance Studio will strive to make accommodations for visitors as space and students allow.
