Lessons: Most classes will receive a minimum of 36 lessons during the regular dance season. Non-recital classes will receive 32 lessons. In some instances, certain classes may have additional classes scheduled for June. Classes run as session classes will run for the stated time period.
Make up classes:
DCSP does not follow the AACPS holiday schedule. A schedule of holiday closings will be posted.
Students should be accompanied to/from class by an adult or other responsible party. Please do not drop children at the front door This is the policy of the Severna Park Community Center. *Parents, please do NOT wait at the SPCC entrance in your car- this causes a back up in the parking lot and makes for an unsafe situation.
Students must arrive to and be picked up from class on time. If a parent is not present at dismissal, the burden falls solely to the dance instructor to ensure the student's safety. Please be respectful of the instructors' schedules.
If for any reason is a student is asked to, or requests to, not participate in class, an attempt to contact a parent or guardian will be made. If a parent or guardian cannot be reached, the student will be required to remain in class until a parent or guardian arrives.
Parent Observation Days: The last class of the month, through January, will be Parent Observation Day. We encourage all parents to attend this class to observe the progress of their children.
Regular class attendance is required. When a student misses a class, it impacts their progress and the progress of the entire class. Please inform your teacher by phone/email if you know you will miss a class. If multiple classes will be missed due to illness, please inform the office. Chronic absences on the part of a student will be reviewed by DCSP staff.
Note: excessive absences from a Cecchetti class could result in not participating in upcoming exams. Excessive absences can also result in not participating in certain choreography for dance recitals and/or affect class placement for the following year. It is the student's responsibility to master choreography when she/he is absent from learning.
