Attendance and Make-Up Policies
Dancers must be committed to their dance classes and rehearsals. In order for the dancers at Fuzion to excel throughout the year, it is very important that they attend dance classes and rehearsals.
Dancers are allowed a maximum of 4 absences per class per year, including rehearsals.
After the 4th absence in a class/rehearsal, dancers will need to make up any missed classes/rehearsals.
Technique Class Absences: Missed technique classes will need to be made up in the same style of dance/class that the dancer was absent. Example: If a dancer is absent in jazz technique, he/she will need to make up their absence in a jazz technique class.
If you need help finding a class to make up an absence, let us know and we will give you options.
Competition Rehearsal Absences: Missed competition rehearsals do not have a make up class. If your dancer acquires four absences in a rehearsal, he/she will need to schedule and pay for a private lesson with the instructor of that rehearsal. See private lesson fees below.
Failure to make up absences can result in removal from the class(es) and/or competition dances with more than 4 absences. If a dancer is removed from class(es) or competition dance(s), no refunds will be given.
If a dancer cannot attend a make up class, a private lesson with the instructor can be scheduled.
Private lesson fees must be paid prior to or at the time of the lesson.
Private lesson fees are as follows:
$25 - 30 minutes
$50 - 60 minutes
Dancers are responsible for filling out a make-up form and handing it in to the appropriate teacher.
- Should a dancer become injured and is unable to participate in class or rehearsal, dancers must abide by the following rules: Dancers must sit through class to receive attendance credit OR dancers must make up missed classes to receive attendance credit. All dancers must abide by the attendance policy set for competitive dancers.
Class Cancellation Policy
- Occasionally Fuzion has to close due to inclement weather. Parents will be notified by email by 4:00 pm on the day of cancellation. Cancellation notices will also be placed on social media and the local new stations.
- Photos are taken of the Fuzion dancers throughout the year in class, at competitions and at Fuzion events. Many of the photos are posted on the Fuzion Facebook page, on the website and on various flyers for advertisements.
