Missing Class/Being Late

Attendance is crucial in learning, and we do not offer makeup classes for any classes missed, due to the availability of studio space.  If you must miss class for any reason, it is your responsibility to call our office at 491-2780 and inform the office staff or leave a message on the voice mail message.  Please do this prior to the scheduled class time so we can inform the instructor of your absence. 

Being late to class is sometimes hard to avoid, however, if you are 10 mintues late to class, the instructor may ask you to observe rather then take class.  Missing the beginnig exercises may run you the risk of injury from not warming up properly.  Its up to each instructor to make that decision.  Call the office at 491-2780 prior to class time to inform us of your late arrival.

Snow Days/Bad Weather

Dance Fusion follows the Jefferson County Public Schools (JCPS) decision for cancelling school and classes.  If JCPS cancels school then Dance Fusion classes are cancelled as well. We will send out text messages to all parents notifying them of the cancelled classes.  If JCPS lets school out early due to bad weather, then Dance Fusion will be closed.  If you are unsure if we are closed, call the office at 491-2780 for a voice mail message or e-mail Ms. Kristal at [email protected].com
