Attendance Policy

Dancers are expected to keep good attendance. Like any other discipline, dance includes a continual progression of material. Substantial absence from a class will greatly affect the students ability to advance.

Missed classes do not affect tuition. Missed classes may be made-up at a similar class that will be advised be either your instructor or management.

Cancelled classes will be made up on a date determined by the instructor. They may not necessarily be on the same day or time as the scheduled class. Students will not be reimbursed for canceled classes. This applies to classes canceled due to inclement weather, as well.


If students decide to withdraw from a class they must notify the office as soon as possible. Students will be responsible for payment for all classes prior to notification


Photo/Video Policy

Photographs and Videos of classes and performances taken at Dance Studio M and Dance Studio M performances may be used to promote the studio in brochures and online. If you prefer that you or your dancer not be photographed, please notify Dance Studio M at registration.
