Classes begin Monday, August 20, 2018
Our school year is based on a 36 week term which spans over nine months.
Most months will have four lessons. Some months will have five lessons, while others may have three lessons. At the end of the year, the student will have completed 36 lessons. Recital week is considered the 36th week.
If school is dismissed or cancelled due to weather there will be no classes held that day.
Check the website or Keloland.com Closeline for announcements.
We reserve the right to dismiss any student who is or becomes a discipline problem.
is an important part of your education
Attending class regularly is important to any program in order to learn and advance properly. If you miss class due to an illness, make-up classes may be arranged. No refunds are given for classes missed. We do expect to be notified if a student is going to be absent from class.
Intermediate, Junior, Senior Classes
(school grades 5th and up)
Any lesson missed must be made up within 1 week, or prior to the next lesson, to ensure that the student maintains consistent strength. Students who do not make up absences within the 1 week grace period will be dropped from class.
There will be a $15.00 reinstatement fee.
Arranging and attending a make-up class is the sole responsibility of the student.
In emergency situations, where absences exceed two per class, a private lesson will need to be arranged with the instructor of the class at $20.00 per 30 minute lesson. This will qualify for an hour class lesson. The private lesson must be made up, or scheduled with the teacher, within a 7-day period following the missed class which dropped the student below 90% attendance.
Graduation candidates from the studio must:
- Have completed a minimum of 800 class hours.
- Have passed all of the Cecchetti student examinations I-III.
- Have maintained a minimum of three classes per week – one class each in ballet, tap and jazz – the four years prior to graduation.
- Perform ballet, tap and jazz in the recital, in at least three of their remaining four years. Senior year is mandatory.
- Have completed high school graduation requirements.
Due to the unique technical curriculum of the Living Art Dance Studios, it is important that each student upholds our studio philosophy in all of their dance experiences. Therefore, students are not permitted to concurrently enroll in similar technique classes-curriculums of other dance studios/programs. Ethnic classes are an exception. Failure to comply with this policy will result in immediate dismissal from the studio.
You can register for classes all summer long.
