PRO RATIONS

Volume prorates monthly class fees for dancers that start dancing at Volume in the middle of a month. The office staff will assist you in determining prorated class fees. Payments cannot be prorated if a dancer misses class for any reason.

MISSED LESSONS AND MAKE UP CLASSES

We do not pro-rate for missed classes, but you are always welcome to make-up in another class if the class is available.   

ATTENDANCE

A dancer needs to understand the importance of attending class, not only for the progress of his or her dance education, but also for the progress of the class as a whole. A dancer who misses class frequently will fall behind, become frustrated and hold up the class. A dancer with excessive absences will be dealt with as the faculty deems necessary. If an instructor notices a student who is not consistently adhering to the "basic rules" below, appropriate action will be taken.
