Essential Elements Dance Studio Policies

Attendance 

We ask that you call in advance if your child will not be attending class.  Any dancer who misses a class is entitled to make it up the following week.  Please speak with the director if special circumstances occur.

All makeup classes must be completed WITHIN THE MONTH of the class(es) your dancer missed.

We do not recommend Make Up classes post the month of April, as focus shifts to the show completely in mid April. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

Dress Code

All dancers are required to participate in the EEDS Dress Code for all classes.  No baggy clothing or street clothes are permitted.  It is important for mobility as well as to show proper alignment of the body while dancing.  Dancers arriving to class without proper dress code attire will not be permitted to participate.
