Classes begin the week of September 17th
The Dancing Lights Ballet School offers a wide variety of classes, workshops, summer camps and performances to inspire and expand our students creative abilities. Our staff is proud to provide an environment where we work together with students and families to create the best possible experience for all of our dancers – from the whimsical atmosphere that can found in our youngest classes to the more technical training presented at our advanced levels.
Please Note: Class size is limited. To ensure your spot is reserved, enroll as soon as possible. Placement in Advanced classes require Ballet Evaluation and Director’s approval.
Mandatory Enrollment – It is required for Ballet II and Advanced dancers to enroll in a Ballet and Jazz class.
If a student misses a class due to illness, vacation or any other reason, arrangements can be made to attend another regularly scheduled class to make up the missed class (if one is available). No credits or refunds will be given for missed classes and special make-up classes will be scheduled only if a class session is cancelled by the school, instructor or 2+ days due to inclement weather.
Please be aware that make-up classes are restricted. Again these make-ups may be done ONLY with instructor permission and by appointment. This is also with the understanding that your child may not be able to participate in the entire make-up class. She will be able to participate in barre work, warm-ups, and across the floor routines. However, when the class is working on their recital routine, she will be asked to be the audience during this time. It is very disruptive to have a dancer who is unfamiliar with a routine in class. This also allows us to build consistency with all of our dancers.
Any dancer who misses more than two consecutive classes or more than 4 classes total after March 1st will not be permitted to dance in the year-end recital. Again this is due to the need for consistency and out of fairness to the other dancers in the class.
The instructor reserves the right to disallow make-ups in order to preserve the integrity of the class and prevent unnecessary disruptions. Make-ups will not be constructive after a certain point in the year and will not be permitted after March 1st.
If the suspension or absence of classes is for a medical reason, The Dancing Lights Ballet School requires a written medical explanation from a treating physician, and upon return may require a release to resume.
