Attendance Policy

Attendance will be taken every weekend. At the discretion of the Artistic Director, any dancer may be replaced for missing (1) or more rehearsals. This includes excused and unexcused absences. All rehearsals after Thanksgiving and during the entire “tech week” in December are required. All Nutcracker performances are required.


Expectations for Behavior

Generally speaking, we have very few problems from year to year. That said, we want all parents and dancers to please be aware that any issues that do arise will be handled as follows:


1st response - The adult immediately involved (choreographer, parent volunteer, staff) will speak directly to the dancer about the issue, and review expectations for behavior. The Artistic Director will be notified.


2nd response - If the behavioral problem persists, the Artistic Director will be notified and will contact/inform a parent.


3rd response - If the behavioral problem still is an issue, a parent will be called and required to supervise the individual dancer for all remaining rehearsals and/or performances.
