Remember, students in recital classes or teams are allowed 1 excused absence per session, 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.
