    *Students must be in school for at least half a day in order to participate in dance class that evening.

    *Your Bryan ID card is REQUIRED at check in (a photograph of your current ID on your phone is just fine!). If you do not have your ID or a photo of your ID, you will be required to pay a $2 fee.

    *Only students registered for the classes will be allowed in the gym. Only registered parent volunteers will be allowed in the gym.
