What happens if i miss a class?

Students may “make up a class” in the level they are taking with approval from the instructor of the makeup class and the Education Director. A make up class doesn’t erase the absence from the class they are registered in. Since improvisation relies heavily on creating ensemble with your classmates, make up classes may not be offered for some upper level classes.
