Regular attendance is required as each lesson builds on the one prior. If a student misses 3 classes, they will be dropped from the roll.

Class Make-ups

You may make-up at any location that has your program. Refer to your class’ schedule to locate classes for a make-up.

Please note that make-up classes are a courtesy. When a large number of students are absent from their regular class, it not only makes an impact on that class, it makes an impact on the make-up class. For that reason, large numbers of students may not be able to make-up together. We do our best to accommodate.

For illness or emergencies, call 650.340.9860. Students are encouraged to schedule a make-up class (see class schedule and locations). Make-ups are offered as a courtesy, but sometimes can’t be accommodated.

When To Arrive

We ask that students arrive 10 minutes early for instruction and sign-in. If you need to bring a student earlier or will be late to pick up, please call Ms. Gerzanic’s cell: 650.346.3026 or email us at least 24 hours prior to class.

Student Photo

Please provide a photo of your child to help us get to know them. These photos are attached to their registration cards and do not leave our office.


Please notify us of any medical or learning conditions.

Team Moms

A Team Mom is needed for each class. The chaperones report to the Team Mom and she provides instruction (e.g. when to put out refreshments, when to take roll, etc.).

Enjoy meeting other moms and learning from the class? Email us about being a team mom.


Parents are asked to chaperone at least one class, with four parents needed per class to assist the Team Mom. Both moms and dads can be chaperones.

To volunteer for a class, email us.

Student Assistant Program

We are currently taking applications from high school students for our student assistant program.

One male and one female assistant are needed per class. Training is provided. This is a great way for high school students to earn community service credit while benefiting from JMC as well.

December Event and Spring Ball


Individual and/or group pictures of both students and their families are taken at the December event and Spring Ball. Photos are ready at the end of the ball.

Arrive 1-2 hours early to allow adequate time for pictures. We suggest that students eat before they arrive.


All family and friends are invited to the last 30 minutes of the ball to observe the Parents Honor Dance and the awards presentation. Mothers dance with sons and fathers dance with daughters. There will be a short instruction on the Fox Trot before the Honor Dance.


  • Dads: Coat and tie
  • Moms: Dress or skirt (no pants please)
