NEW MAKE-UP/PRIVATES RULES

If a student misses ANY one class, they are required to attend a make-up class of the same subject (lower or equal class level).

Exceptions: Two classes missed in the following subject will require a private lesson:

  • Cecchetti Ballet (with no alternate class offered), Pointe, and/or Competition Team Class

Please note: A student is limited to 6 private lessons per season (this is 12 missed classes in Cecchetti, Pointe, and/or Competition Team Class).  If a student requires more than 6 privates per season that student will be dismissed from the competitive program.

If absences are not made-up, the Intensive team member will forfeit competing until the classes are made-up. Classes should be made-up within 2 weeks of the missed class.

Cookies for cops

COOKIES FOR COPS

Let’s start baking! On Saturday, November 18th, just the Munchkin and Mini team members will meet at the studio at  3:00pm. The studio has purchased boxes for the team members to decorate to thank our Police Officers, Firemen, Paramedics, and EMTs. Everyone is responsible for their own supplies (markers, ribbon, stickers, crayons, etc).  We want to make this very special to show our appreciation!

PARENTS: We need three or more volunteers per team to help decorate and deliver our cookies! Please e-mail Miss Ginniann if you can help us out!
