Calendar

Stay informed about key dates at the studio, including holidays, off days, and make-up days for weather-related closings.

The calendar is based on a 32-week school year. Due to closures on various holidays, intended Princeton Youth Ballet performance dates, and specific teacher absences, the schedule is not intuitive.
