  • Absence and make up classes

    In order for your child’s absence to be eligible for a make-up class, it must be reported by email not later than 24 hrs before the class. While absences may occur for any number of reasons, we are only able to offer make-up classes for those absences due to illness, family emergency, or religious holidays. If your child is injured and will miss a prolonged series of classes, we ask that you provide us with an applicable doctor’s note. Please note that tuition will not be adjusted for those weeks missed unless the student withdraws. Absences should be reported 24hrs prior to the missed class in writing via email at studio@UltimateTangoKids.com. Students are urged to make up any classes that are missed by attending lower age class option.

    Make up classes must be completed within a week after absence. Ask your child’s instructor for advice on make up classes.

  • Parents Designated Areas

    Parents are asked to please either remain in dedicated space during class times or leave the studio, so that the student can focus his/her entire attention on dance. No class watching is permitted. Parents Observation Weeks and Recital dates are listed HERE.

  • Parent Observation Weeks

    During Parent Observation Weeks family and friends are invited into the classroom to observe students’ progress throughout the year. With the exception of the scheduled Parent Observation Weeks, we kindly ask that family members wait in the designated area until the student is finished with class. The presence of “an audience” or multiple adults creates a distraction and takes attention away from the teacher’s instruction.
