It is not the responsibility of the instructors to make-up for missed class times. Students will find observations to be just as helpful as a dance class itself and are encouraged to bring notebook or dance journal to take notes. Our professional dance instructors are trained to work with and around injuries and understand how to modify movement accordingly. For example, if a dancer is well enough, they may want to focus on head and arm movements while they heal.
