TRADING CLASS SPACES
At Dynamite, we understand that life happens. For this reason, we allow students to make up missed classes. To create more spaces and maximize makeup options for everyone, we ask that you report when your student will be absent. We ask that families report absences at least 48 hours in advance to provide other families with the opportunity to plan makeups.

Report your absences!
ABSENCE NOTIFICATION RULES
Classes and makeups absences must be reported AT LEAST 48 HOURS prior to the class, camp or event.
Missing your scheduled class? Complete the Absence Notification form on this page.
Using your makeups for class, camp or an event but can't make it? Email us at email@example.com.
The purpose of a makeup is to offer alternatives for emergencies and scheduling conflicts . As our classes grow and become full, makeup options become scarce. So many families already call to let us know that they will be out, but we would like to make it easier (hence, the form).
Please provide as much notice as possible. More notice increases the probability that another student will have ample time to schedule a makeup in your child's vacant spot. Everyone needs to work together to share class spots when students aren't using them.
Of course, we understand if you have an emergency and ask that you inform the gym as soon as you realize your student will not be attending.
Please note that serial absences with no notification may result in makeups not being granted.
class ABSENCE NOTIFICATION
Please report your student's absence in the form below. If you are cancelling anything else, contact the gym directly.
making the most of your absences
use makeups for more than just classes
Dynamite grants UNLIMITED makeups for missed classes that can be used for classes, camp, open gyms, and events for the student, siblings or friends. Dynamite makeups can also be used at Bolt Parkour, The Agility Center, or Dynamite Tumbling & Cheer. Abuse of our liberal makeup policy may result in makeups no longer being granted and reimbursement for erroneously accumulated or redeemed makeups.
- Makeups accumulate and may be redeemed while the student is enrolled; any makeups remaining once enrollment ends will be forfeited.
- Class absences must be reported AT LEAST 48 HOURS prior to the start of class. The purpose of a makeup is to offer flexibility; however, other students need to have the option of using the vacant spot which is only possible with advance notice. Of course, we understand if you have an emergency; however, serial absences with no notification may result in makeups not being granted.
- Once a makeup is scheduled, whether or not your student attends, the makeup will be considered redeemed--whether for a makeup class, or camp, open gym or event.
- While we permit parents to schedule makeups in advance, parents are responsible for reimbursing the trial rate or regular cost of open gyms, events or camp days for any makeups used beyond the number of makeups earned upon discontinuing enrollment.
To apply makeups towards camp days or events, please contact the gym directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 301.770.2700. Please include MAKEUP REDEMPTION REQUEST in the subject line so we don't miss it!

CAMP MAKE-UP RULES
Makeups may ONLY be used for daily camp days which include "School's Out" camp or summer camp from June 10 - July 5). Makeups may NOT be used for partial camp days. For example, if your camper wants to attend for the full day, 4 makeups are required to cover the entire cost of the full-day camp day. If you only have 2 makeups, you may sign your child up for half day, but not full day. The only exception is early drop off (ED) and late pick-up (LP), which must be paid for using cash or a credit card.
