POLICY & RULES
Taná Dance, Arts & Movement begins classes in September and ends classes in June. Our classes are structured to follow a curriculum spread out throughout the school year. This means it is extremely important that the students and parents commit to the full year, to ensure improvement in technique.
It is Taná Dance, Arts & Movement’s policy to offer appropriate opportunities and class level placement to every student. Each student’s class placement is evaluated on an annual basis. Decisions regarding each student is carefully examined and made with the expertise of our highly trained and professional staff of instructors. Proper placement helps to ensure optimal growth for each individual student. Please contact the Director for any questions regarding your student’s training and placement.
ATTENDANCE & MAKE-UP SESSIONS
Students’ regular attendance is imperative to ensure growth and consistent progress. Taná Dance, Arts & Movement encourages every student and parent to maintain good attendance throughout the year. In the case of an absence, please notify the office in advance and schedule to make-up the class that was missed.
In order to ensure safety and reduce the risk of injury in our students, it is extremely important to start class on time. Students that are late may not be able to participate in the class, allowed only to observe. Late admittance can be very disruptive to the flow of the class and dangerous for the body, therefore late admittance is left to the discretion of each teacher.
