Missed Classes
All missed classes due to illness, vacation, DFJ holidays/breaks (see list below) or inclement weather may be made up in another age appropriate class. To attend a make-up class you must go to the office first to pick up a make-up slip; no reservation required. We highly recommend not waiting until May & June to do make-ups because classes may be spending the majority of their time on choreography for our annual June performance. Only registered students can make up a missed class. Students not currently enrolled are no longer eligible to make up absences from previous enrollments. 

*In case of long periods of closure due to weather, an additional make up day may be available.

Cut-off date for signing up or switching classes is Feb. 28th.
