Tardiness & Attendance
Attendance is essential in your students’ progress. Missed classes may be made up within the same month of the absence. Students are limited to ONE make-up lesson, per style of class, each month in an age and level appropriate class with availability. Contact the office at [email protected] to schedule your make-up lesson. A student who comes late to class may be asked to sit out, however repeated tardiness or absence may result in removal from class.
Extreme Weather & Emergency Closures
PDC will mostly follow Dripping Springs ISD after school closures, however an email will be sent out to confirm closure. Refunds for lessons missed or canceled due to weather related, emergency (road closure, pandemic, flood, etc) or holiday closures will not be given.
Only water is allowed in the dance rooms. Chewing gum will not be permitted in class. At Premiere Dance Center, we strive to provide a family environment for all dancers, parents and staff. Please be respectful of other dancers, parents, teachers and PDC property while at or representing Premiere Dance Center.
