Dress Code & Attendance Policies
Exclusive BDC Children & Teen Program Dancewear
The CTP enforces a mandatory dress code for each age division. We feel strongly that this will promote discipline and proper classroom etiquette. All hair must be pulled back away from the face. No jewelry is permitted. Any student not in dress code will be asked to observe the class. Dress code is listed below.
The Children & Teen Program is a 32-week commitment. Classes run from September 17, 2016 through June 11, 2017, on Tuesdays and Thursdays. To best support your child’s training, CONSISTENT ATTENDANCE IS REQUIRED.
Students are allowed a total of four (4) absences for the entire CTP season. If more than four absences occur during the dance season, you may be asked to withdraw from the program. These absences include school testing, religious commitments, illness, and the like. Students may not miss the three (3) classes leading up to the showcase. Students may not miss dress rehearsal in June.
If your child has a planned absence, written documentation must be emailed to the CTP director prior to the event. For their safety, your child will not be able to participate in class if they arrive more than 10 minutes late. They must observe the class and take notes. This will be strictly enforced, there are no make-up classes and you will be held responsible for payment, even if your child does not attend class. It is imperative to your child’s success in the CTP that it is viewed as a serious commitment.
*Professional Children: Children who work professional jobs are allowed a total of six absences for the season. If absences exceed six, they will be asked to not participate in the recital, but may continue classes. Written proof documentation of the job must be given to Allie prior to the job's start date.
