WHAT IF I MISS A
Good attendance is necessary to ensure
maximum progress in class. If an injury does not allow you
to take class, please come and watch. There are no refunds
for missed classes. Please phone The Dance Center when a

not hear otherwise.

In case of inclement weather, forecasts
of large amounts of snow, or unsafe driving conditions,

cancelled classes are made regularly on our Facebook page.
Our annual recital will be held June 7,
