  • Please pick up your child in a timely fashion as ISB is not responsible for students left unattended.


  • Academy level and Beginning Ballet/Beginning Teen make-up classes are permitted within 30 days of the absence. However, they must be scheduled and approved by the office before the class is missed (i.e. calling at least one hour before class to notify the office that your child will not be attending class.)
  • Make-up classes may not be applied past 30 days or applied/transferred to another student.
  • Each student is limited to 4 make-up classes per semester (6 for students taking multiple classes per week).
  • A missed Conditioning/Stretch Class does not qualify for a make-up of any kind.


  • Students with no dance experience and/or students in the Early Division age group will be placed in an appropriate level based on their age group.
  • All new students with dance experience will be asked to take a placement class to allow the teacher to evaluate their skills and place them in the appropriate level. New students, schedule your free trial class by clicking here.



  • Arriving on time or a few minutes early is important. A student arriving more than 15 minutes late may be asked by the teacher to sit and observe because they missed a valuable part of their warm up and are more susceptible to injury if they dance without a proper warm up. Observing class still counts as attending class and does not qualify for a make up class.
