Dance and theater students who miss a class due to illness, injury, or approved studio closures may pick up a make-up card at the front office. Make-up cards are available for currently enrolled students whose tuition and other studio payments are current. Make-up cards can be used to attend any age and ability-level appropriate class (though music and dance are not interchangeable). Please present the card to the teacher before class begins. Make-up cards can be used by anyone in the family, but are otherwise non-transferable. No refunds are given for missed lessons.
