If similar classes are available, please ask if we can arrange for you to temporarily attend another class to make up the occasional missed class.
Classes will run whether you attend or not, it is your responsibility to make sure you can attend all the classes within the term.
NOTE: For the last month of classes, the studio will require 24-hours' notice to cancel a scheduled make-up class. If not canceled with over 24 hours' notice, the class will count as a make-up class whether or not the student attends.
