What is your attendance policy?
YDC's Attendance Policy
We wish our 10-weeks could last forever. We need to cherish the time we have together. This is one of the reasons why our attendance policy is in place.
Dance is a team sport. It is so important that our dancers attend all rehearsal and training hours in their 10-week session. This ensures that all dancers are on the same page, and we can move through choreo and training at a healthy pace.
If a dancer misses 2 classes, they will receive a check-in email. If a dancer misses 3 or more classes, YDC may remove them from a pieces or pieces in the show.
Our attendance policy is in place to help all dancers maintain regularity in their training. This is for safety as well as efficiency. Things are better when we’re together.
Of course, we understand that life happens. If you need to miss class, please email your session teacher:
We love our time together. We want as much of it as possible.
