Intermediate and Advanced level students may attend the Youth Ensemble Winter Break Classes or Adult Open Division classes to make-up missed classes.

Lost & Found

Can’t find your favorite jacket? Missing your ballet shoes? Take a look through the LBS lost & found during the last week of the fall semester, Tuesday, November 19th – Tuesday, November 26th to claim your lost items!

Make-up week, 12/19 – 12/11 will be the last call to claim your items. After 12/11, we will be donating all remaining items.



Thank you to those who have already supported the It’s a Small World Afterall project. 

If you have not made a donation yet, visit our power2give project page now! Our project still has matching funds but they will only last so long! Our project ends in 15 days so please give now to effectively double your donation and help us reach our goal!

Plain white walls are BORING! Help us dance in color! We would love to be able to offer cheerful, inspiring hues in our studios.

Without your help and the completion of our fundraising project, we will not be able to make these exciting improvements!
