Regular Attendance

Regular Attendance

The closer we get to recital time, the more regular attendance is critical for student progression and group choreography. Thank you for making all scheduled classes a priority when it comes to extra- curricular activities. Any classes that a student misses too close to the show may result in a mandatory private lesson with the instructor. In order to avoid this, older students can meet with friends of that class before the next week’s lesson to learn anything they may have missed. It is essential that students arrive to class on time, fully dressed in appropriate attire and ready to go. This allows for a safe and proper warm up to avoid injuries. If a student arrives late, they are to quietly get their dance shoes on and join in with the class as fast as they can, from there the teacher may ask them to warm up on their own off to the side.

If a student is unable to attend class for any reason, please call the front desk as soon as you know you will be absent. This ensures that the teacher can make appropriate adjustments for those who are attending that class ahead of time. Make-up classes will only be approved if BDA has been notified prior to the student’s absence. So Please Call In! Make up classes must be arranged with the dancer’s teacher ahead of time.
