Inclement Weather Policy:
The studio will not follow the Rochester Public Schools when it closes due to inclement weather. Often times the weather and road conditions greatly improve by the start of classes in the afternoon. There are several ways to find out the status of class: Call the studio number for a recorded message, check the news tab on the studio website, email and/or text message will be sent out and finally KTTC. Make up classes will not be held when classes are closed due to inclement weather. Make up classes do not work--quite literally-- 5% of the students attend. Anyone wanting to attend another class for a make up is welcome to.
 Observation of Class:
Classes are closed to watching unless it is Observation Day. Parents are invited to stay and observe class: The week of 11/06 and 02/26. Little ones: Reluctant dancers not willing to seperate from a parent can have a parent sit in class the first lesson or two. After that, reluctant dancers may need to consider trying class when they are a little older.
