Ballet for Breakfast Resumes February 3

little-ballerinasWelcome back to our ballerinas! Ballet for Breakfast resumes Friday, February 3, 8:00am-8:45am. Classes continue every Friday school is in session until the spring recital (date TBD…either last week of April or first week of May). Typically, new students are not accepted mid-year as there are only  7-8 classes before the spring performance. Ballerinas typically spend the first 1-2 classes reviewing, and then get right into the dance. All students will have the opportunity to join again in the fall, when there is a longer time to develop basic skills. Questions? Please contact McKinley School Psychologist Dana Bassio at DBOSSIO(at)fairfieldschools.org.
