Make-up Lessons:/Missed Class:

If a pupil is going to miss class, the parent is asked to please call the school.

If the student cannot attend the regularly scheduled class, he or she may attend another similar class with permission of the dance instructor.  No credit is given on tuition for absenteeism.

                     **Due to the limited number of hours for solo, duet & trio lessons, NO makeup lessons will be scheduled.

Dancewear Requirements:

Girls – All combination and ballet dancers must wear black leotards & pink tights.  All students of Charlene’s School of Dance, Inc will wear dance wear which will be fitted and MUST be purchased in our store.  Check with the instructor on requirements for ballet skirts. Hair pulled back into a dancer’s bun and secured. Hip-Hop dancers must wear hip hop dance sneakers and hair in a ponytail.

Boys - shorts and sweats are acceptable.  NO jeans.

Snow Days: In case of bad weather, the studio will send a text through REMIND (please sign up during registration) and email that specifically states that we are closed.
