Stay informed about key dates at the studio including holidays and make-up days for weather closings.
The calendar is based on 32 classes/year. Due to various holidays, Princeton Youth Ballet performances, and specific teacher absences, the schedule is not always intuitive. Email reminders will be sent throughout the year, so please watch your inbox for calendar notifications.
Please note that we are NOT off for teachers convention weekend this year, and we are not off for Yom Kippur. With other holidays and Princeton Youth Ballet performances, we had trouble finding enough Fridays and Saturdays through the school year to get to the needed 32.
