Missed Classes

There is no credit given for missed classes. If a student misses a class because of illness, family/school obligation or if the weather is bad, the studio will offer a make-up class. Make-up classes are the student’s responsibility and are strongly encouraged. Students have four weeks to make-up the class that they missed. Check with your child’s teacher or the front desk as to which class would be appropriate for them to join for the make-up.
