PLEASE NOTE:  Calendar is subject to change. 

All New Ballet students are expected to attend all classes. Please complete the online absence request form atleast 2 weeks prior to your absence.  New Ballet students are allowed up to 2 excused absences. Students in levels IV, V, VI and VII will make up missed classes in the level below the student's regular level and are scheduled at the Artistic Director's discretion.

Dancers are allowed two religious and academic absences. Please fill out the online permission form in advance. This helps the staff with the planning of rehearsals. All absences for ACT/SAT/ISEE testing are automatically EXCUSED with prior notice. Doctors notes for prolonged absences are accepted, making these excused without need for make up lessons. 

Repeated unexcused absences and/or tardies hamper the fullfillment of a dancer's goals. NBE offers a high standard of training with high expectations. The Teacher or Program Director may call a parent conference in the case of multiple missed classes. Scholarships are also contingent on attendance.

Please review the detailed School Attendance Policy in the Student Handbook.

If a dancer must be absent for any reason, please fill out the online absence request form here.
