Attendance

Attendance is taken in each class. Good attendance is important as absences and tardiness can hold back an entire class. If an absence is due to an illness, a Doctors note must be presented to the front desk upon returning to class. All scheduled absences, such as "Vacations", must be handed in to Studio B in writing and documented.


Make-Up Classes

If a dancer misses a class, they have the option of taking a make-up class in the appropriate level. There will be no refunds for missed classes. Please inquire at the desk as to the class day and time for your childs make up.

Dress Code

A dress code is an important part of the discipline instilled in a young dancer and all dancers are expected to arrive prepared and in proper dress attire. Our dress code was established to promote the students freedom of movement and enable the instructor to observe proper body alignment. Hair must be pulled back away from the face in every class.  No jewelry other than small earrings should be worn. 

Inclement Weather and Holidays

In the event of inclement weather please call the studio for updates or check Studio B website/ social media. We will follow the decisions of Matawan/Aberdeen Board of Education when it comes to  school closings due to inclement weather. On occasion, we will override the school system if conditions clear in our area.
