Dancers/Parents/Guardians,
If there is a problem with you/your dancer attending an event/rehearsal listed on this calendar, you must get documentation (written note via email or hand delivered letter) to me prior to the event.
See the course contract for reasoning and know events count towards participation and grading since this is a performing art and performance work is a required standard. Attendance is taken at all events.
Thank you and happy dancing/happy dance viewing!
