Summer Q&A:

I'm going to be on vacation for one or two weeks and will have to miss some classes.  Is that a problem? Can I make up the classes?
We're  glad you have vacation plans. You may make up missed class time in classes of the same or next higher or lower level. Please talk to us to schedule make-up classes.

I will be out of town for several weeks and cannot commit to 9 weeks of classes. Should I just take the summer off and return in the fall?
Please talk to us about a customized summer schedule. For optimal progress we recommend everyone in level II and upcontinue classes throughout the summer and ideally intensify study over the summer by increasing the number of classes they take per week and  attending our ballet intensive.
