BACKUP B2D Conventions 2018/2019

CONVENTION VS. ATTENDANCE NOTE: 

With the exception of Monsters of Hip Hop, all B2D classes and Team Rehearsals will run as scheduled on the day(s) of  all the conventions listed on this page.

If you’re attending one of these conventions, with proof of registration, your absence will NOT count against your recital class, required foundation class, or team rehearsal’s absence tally. Remember, you’re only allowed 1 excused absence per session for recital and team classes, and 2 excused absences for foundation classes. HOWEVER, you’re still responsible for learning the choreo and showing up to the next class/rehearsal knowing it in full, as per the Recital and Team Handbook’s guidelines for absences.
