Attendance policy: Due to the nature and continuous presentation and refinement of new skills and techniques covered in these program, we ask that students do their very best to attend all classes within a session. At the end of the session, there will be a Saturday morning 10:00-11:30 am makeup opportunity for anyone who has missed a class for whatever reason within that session. Students who have successfully attended all classes within a session may pay a drop-in fee and attend the makeup class to complete any unfinished pieces. We will no longer be issuing credits or refunds when two or more classes are missed due to student schedule conflicts or illness. Students who are aware that they might miss two or more classes should discuss the situation with the Studio prior to registering for the class.
