Regular attendance is necessary to make progress in class. Dancers who miss a half of term classes may not be permitted in the recital/showcase if the dance routine is not learned. This is at the teacher’s discretion. Attendance at Studio and Dress Rehearsal is also required of all recital/showcase participants.
