Attendance in class ♦ Procuring and bringing a mat to every class, beginning Friday, January 22nd ♦ Active participation in each studio and virtual experience Grading: Attendance: You are allowed two absences from in person classes with no penalty. Due to the embodied nature of Pilates and its requirement toward active participation, excessive absences (3 or more) may result in a failing (U) grade. Participation: Working toward personal goals in technical skills will be taken into consideration, as will active participation in virtual assignments. This also includes active participation, requiring your full attention during class, not simply physical attendance. Note: This class is pass/fail. Your grade will appear as either “S” (satisfactory) or “U” (unsatisfactory). Excessive absences or lack of participation, including failure to bring your mat to class, may result in a failing grade. Class Etiquette and Dress Code: ♦ Please arrive early. This cannot be stressed enough; it takes time to put all belongings away, remove outerwear, set up your mat, and find oneself present in the space.♦ ALL personal items should be stored in bags, and as close to the wall as possible. Only water bottles and additional clothing for warm-up should be left out of your bags. All cell phones and other electronic devices should stay in your bag for the entirety of class. ♦ Please stay for the entire class. Use the restrooms before and after class, as people coming and going is disruptive for everyone. (Of course, emergencies and unforeseen circumstances do arise, so please be considerate of the group.) Late arrivals and early dismissals will each count as half of an absence. We will take an outdoor mask break half way through class. ♦ If you cannot participate, please be prepared with a notebook and pen or pencil to take required observation notes and sit comfortably on the side. You may move if you feel you need to, but please respect the flow of the class. Turning in observation notes counts as attendance in class. ♦ Absolutely no cell phones! Turn them off or on silent (not vibrate), and do not charge phones, or check calls, texts, emails, or the time during class! Do not keep phones in pockets or otherwise on your person. They will fall out, potentially causing irreparable damage. ♦ Please dress appropriately and bring your mat to each class. Use your best judgment in terms of what you are comfortable moving in. Academic Integrity: As a University of Georgia student, you have agreed to abide by the University’s academic honesty policy, “A Culture of Honesty,” and the Student Honor Code. All academic work must meet the standards described in “A Culture of Honesty” found at: https://ovpi.uga.edu/academic-honesty/academic-honesty-policy.
