In the event of inclement weather (snow, hurricanes, nor’easters, etc.), we follow the lead of the local area public schools. If Newport News and York County Schools CLOSE due to inclement weather in the area or pending weather to the area then, we will also be closed. In the event the schools call for a MORNING DELAY, our schedule will NOT change unless otherwise noted.
Notifications will be sent out via emails on our website and via social media.
Please check email, website, or social media before calling the studio number to prevent chaos.
Closings are of course for the safety of our dancers and staff. If a closing occurs, dancers are permitted to make-up their class by attending another class (the same or similar in their age range) within one month of the cancelled class. See Class Absences for more details. There will be no compensation or refunds made for classes cancelled due to inclement weather or an emergency situation.
