Dance is a “hands-on” discipline. It is necessary at times for a teacher to touch and direct a student’s hands, arms, legs, feet, torso and head in the course of training.
All students are required to attend every class in which they are enrolled. Excessive absences may jeopardize their participation in the end-of-year show and promotion for the following year. Students should make up classes within the immediate semester either in the level missed or one level below.
