The studio may not close for snow days/other weather regardless of area school closings, as many times the roads are clear and safe by 2:30 pm. If in doubt, call the studio one hour in advance of your lesson for a voicemail recording on whether or not class will meet. Please also refer to emails sent out by the studio as well as social media posts to stay up to date on potential class cancellations.


Attendance is taken at each class and recognition will be given for perfect attendance. This award will be given to students who miss zero classes the whole year. There will be no excused absences. Good attendance is imperative, as absences and tardiness can hold back the entire class. Please make the extra effort to have your child at every class.
Classes during the last four weeks of the dance year and all rehearsals are mandatory to perform in the Spring Dance Recital. This rule also applies to performances of The Nutcracker and any other studio performances.
