  1. Studio Etiquette: Students ages 9 and younger must be accompanied by an adult until class starts, especially if you arrive at the studio early. This allows the teachers to prepare for class. Children must be supervised at ALL times. AAPA is not responsible for unsupervised children. Please help keep the grounds and studio clean by picking up any discarded items. Turn cell phones off when taking class or in the studio. Photography and videography are NOT allowed during class to protect student privacy.

  2. Attendance & Makeups: Please make every effort to attend your class and arrive prepared and on time (10 minutes early). This will ensure your success and growth. Students arriving late must ask the teacher’s permission to join the class. Students will need to warm themselves up on the side and only join when they are warm to prevent injury. Instructors have the discretion to require a student to watch for the day if they are excessively late. Tuition is NOT refunded for missed classes. Make-ups cannot be scheduled online and must be scheduled with the office.  Make-ups are only available for the season in which the class was missed. Three make-ups allowed per season and one make-up allowed per month.
