Classes usually begin the week after school starts continue through our recital the following June. Classes will closely follow the Ballston Spa Central School District calendar.
There will be no class during Thanksgiving, Christmas, February and April vacations, as well as Columbus Day, Halloween, Veteran's Day and Memorial Day. Please be sure to check with the studio when in doubt, as we are frequently open on Monday holidays when school is closed. You can access a studio calendar here.
Our monthly newsletter will also remind you of upcoming closings. Monthly newsletters are available in the studio or online here. They will also be e-mailed each month.
Please note that school closings due to inclement weather do not automatically mean classes are cancelled. Many times roads are cleared and weather conditions improve during the day, making it possible for the studio to safely open in the evening. Please call the studio or check our website after 2 p.m. on school closing days for cancellation announcements. If we do need to cancel class due to weather, you will receive a make-up schedule at your next class.
Good attendance throughout the year is absolutely necessary in order to receive optimum benefit from class instruction. Please notify instructors of any planned absences. In case of an emergency absence, call the studio at 518-879-4110 and we will notify your instructor for you.
Dance Evolution strongly encourages all students to take a ballet class. Ballet is the foundation for all styles of dance and will improve and enhance students' dance skills. All competition team dancers are required to take a ballet technique class each week.
This year Village Photo will once again take end-of-the-year recital photos in-studio. Portrait week is usually scheduled in June.
Student photos will be taken during regular class time; there will be no instruction. All rooms will be needed for costume changes and portraits. Package information and advance order forms will be available in the lobby in May. Photos will be ready in-studio before recital.
Come join our family!
