Attendance Reminders

Please help us by making sure your dancer is regularly attending their dance classes.  All classes are starting their recital routines.  Good attendance will:

Help your dancer be more confident with their dances.
Keep your dancer up-to-date on new steps and avoid frustration of trying to get caught up on what they missed during their absence.
Help the teachers keep classes moving ahead with choreography from week to week.
Help the teachers with formation work in class.
Make-up classes are available for most classes.  Please call or check at the Front desk for class times.

Band App
Please make sure you join the Band App. Online videos will be posted on the Band App to help with at home practice and to provide additional class content for our dancers. We will also use this app to communicate with dancers and parents regarding class material.

It is important that you download the app and join the group by using the link or QR code so that you can access class content and receive class information and notifications. This information was also included in your dancers Fall Info Packet that was passed out during the first week of class.
