Missed classes may be made up in other disciplines, or by observing advanced classes.

INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY:

We are closed for classes when Asheville City Schools are closed for weather (or have a remote learning day due to weather) OR release early due to weather. We are open as usual when Asheville City Schools are open on a delay. If Asheville City Schools cancel some or all afternoon activities, we will plan to be open, and if we have to close (if conditions are dangerous!), we will be in touch via email regarding our weather decision. Anytime we close for weather, we do try to send an email as well as to post on our website and our Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/AshevilleBallet) and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/ashevilleballet/) to make sure there's no confusion, especially regarding Saturday classes. If you’d like to keep up with the Asheville City Schools’ cancellations yourself, as well, their inclement weather hotline is 828-350-6188, and they also post to their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/AVLCitySchools/ and usually to the WLOS school closings listing.

**Important note: For our Monday Pilates and Monday Advanced Ballet and Pointe classes, if Asheville City Schools close for weather (or have a remote learning day due to weather), or release early for weather, we will plan to have classes via Zoom! We will be in touch via email to confirm that this is happening, but virtual days will be our default plan for Monday Pilates/Ballet/Pointe Fall 2023 session!**
