Let your teacher know in advance if you will miss a class. Examples for missing class include mandatory school activity for grade, chicken pox,
Students must attend 80% of their classes to be in performances
 except in extreme cases due to injuries and long illnesses. (This works out to missing no more than 6 classes during the September through May year.) Students are invited to make up classes they have missed by taking an upper or lower level class. Hosanna Dance reserves the right to schedule extra rehearsals for performances with proper notice given and at no extra charge to parents. Upper level students receive extra tutoring and private instruction through these rehearsals at no cost to parents.
