General Info

Hours

Our office is open every class day; see the schedule for specific days and times. If you need to visit us at another time, please contact the School Administrator by email or at 518-426-0660.

NOTE: Students must be picked up immediately following the end of class.

Placements

Students will be placed in classes that are appropriate for their level of physical development and maturity. Please respect the placement of your student by their instructor.  As each student’s development is different, students and parents should expect to spend at least two years at each level.  Placement decisions are approved by the Director and are final.

Makeup Lessons

Make-up lessons are offered for absence due to illness and must be used within one month of absence. Tuition credit is not given in place of make-up lessons. Please call the school when you are going to be absent.

Closings

If the school closes due to inclement weather an email will be sent out. You can also check your local radio or televisions stations for further information.

Notices

Notices will be posted at the studio as well as emailed to our families. Please check to make sure your email is on file as this will be our main form of communication.
