Dancers can take extra technique classes during the Summer Session for make up's classes due to summer absences. Make up classes from the summer do not carry into the fall. Competitive dancers are encouraged to study dance in the summer to bypass any Competition financial penalties come Fall. Why penalties? Dancers improve over the summer on their skills, team building and staff organizes for the upcoming season. Dancers that skip the summer will be behind in their skill and it does cause staff to reorganize classes. This penalty only applies to current students that bypass summer classes. This penalty does not apply to New Students.
Dancers are to attend Auditions for proper placement.
