Please look at our website (deckerschoolofballet.org), find us on FB, or listen to WZOZ or WRSK for closing due to inclement weather. We DO NOT close when the Oneonta School district does. If there has been no announcement by 2:00 PM on weekdays, the studio will be open.
For your children’s safety, please be prompt in delivering and picking them up.
Parents’ watching days will be held during the weeks of November 5 through 10 and February 4 through 9.
Recital dates will be announced in early October. Pre-School, Beginner, Intermediate I and II students will rehearse for the recital during the second half of their class hour beginning in March.
