Course Policies

Jazz2SyllabusSpring2016

  • Please check your Dolphin Email regularly for class updates, material, and changes.
  • Cell phones must be turned off during class.
  • Please do not bring children or guests to class unless discussed with Instructor 24 hrs. prior.
  • Classes may not be audio/video taped without prior instructor consent and specified purpose. Please do not post any video of class to public forums without consent.
  • Notify the instructor of any injuries or if you are not participating. A written assignment may be done about observations on the class. Excessive sitting out hinders your ability to learn and absorb dance, therefore it can be a probable cause for your grade to lower.
  • It is often customary in a dance class for the teacher to help the student by physically adjusting their body toward the correct alignment. If you are uncomfortable with the professor gently manipulating your body, please inform her at the beginning of class.
