Regular and consistent attendance is required in all weekly classes, weekend rehearsals and events. Attendance is the single most important factor that determines the success of the Company. Students must show exemplary attendance in their weekly classes. We try as much as possible to work with schedules, however parents should help explain the commitment students have made to the Company, and that due to the nature of a performing and competitive troupe, excellent attendance at all competition related activities and performances is a necessity. There will be no tolerance for unexcused absences or excessive excused absences. The movement of the dance depends on every individual dancer, so the team suffers when you are not there.  Poor attendance will affect their participation in competitions, performances, and routines. 

Absences in regular weekly classes must be made up in a comparable class approved by the teacher. All classes that are missed must be made up within one month. Those who do not make up the classes as required may be asked to take private lessons. Attendance at ALL company rehearsals is expected. Students will be allowed 2 absences from these rehearsals, but are expected to be in attendance the 2 weeks prior to any competition. Sometimes these fall after a holiday or break, so please keep your Company calendar handy. If you are unable to make a required class, you must individually let Kristen or the front desk know by phone or email in advance of the conflict.

Absences will be tracked carefully. From time to time, additional mandatory rehearsals are called during the year to prep for upcoming performances and competitions. Probation, including lack of eligibility for routine participation, will occur if excused absences are exceeded, or if absences are unexcused. Three tardies or early departures (exceeding 10 minutes) or non-participation (regardless of reason) will equal one absence. If a student is unable to participate they must sit, observe and take notes (not do homework or be on their mobile device).

Attendance at all competitions and performances is expected. Please understand that when just one student misses it can render certain routines unusable or cause the rest of the team to have to learn complicated new formations, etc. To be fair to teammates and teachers, please consider this commitment when joining the Company. If your family has a major conflict with any of our events or competition dates, please notify the Company Director ASAP.
