Attendance

Attendance is important to the learning process and you are expected to be in your assigned class each week. Excessive absenteeism may result in your inability to participate in upcoming performances and could inhibit your advancement to the next class level.

Attendance is recorded at the beginning of every class.

Please notify the studio as soon as possible if you are going to miss a class. You can either send us an email at info@institutefordance.org or call the office at (757) 229-1717.

There are no make-up classes and you will be held responsible for payment, even if your child does not attend class.

ADD/DROP

If your student has decided to withdraw from or enroll in a [different] class, please notify the office so that you can receive an add/drop form.

We require a 30-day notice to drop a class. If notice is given less than 30-days, you will still be charged for the month. Please note, you will continue to be charged for all classes if the proper forms are not completed.

INCLEMENT WEATHER/ HOLIDAY CLOSINGS

We follow the Williamsburg/James City County School District closings. We will do our best to notify all families of unplanned closings via email, text, and Facebook.

Make-up classes will be scheduled if more than 2 classes are missed due to unexpected closures – refunds will not be given.
