Rehearsal Schedule

Click here for the updated rehearsal schedule for Robert's and Carlene's Ballet and Jazz classes. We are feeling a little overwhelmed with the number of snow days and are working diligently to put together a make up schedule. Please bare with us. Also, if you have not made any costume deposits do so immediately. Reminder that March tuition is approaching as well.


Our Nutcracker performance was stunning. The dancers worked extremely hard and did a phenomenal job at all three of our sold out shows. Our post performance reception was a delightful chance for everyone to get together after the show and spend some time as a big dance family.


Our 5th annual Boo To You performance in downtown Glens Falls this past Halloween season was incredible. Our dancers were thrilling and energetic with new choreography, while still paying tribute to the traditional Thriller choreography. Special thanks to Katie for her hard work and dedication to making this Halloween performance so successful.

Congratulations Ling Minucci!

Our very own Ling Minucci, age 11, in an article highlighting her many achievements in her ballet career. She has been accepted into New York City Ballet for 3 seasons along with our Cassandra Wagemann (2 seasons), and Sara Ross, performing Circus Polka and Union Jack.

Art Classes!


Before we get into any of the upcoming events, the faculty at GFBDC would like to thank you for your dedicated business with us. We are so proud of our dancers in our most recent Boo to You and Nutcracker performances. Nothing would be possible without the dedication of not only our talented dancers, but the parent's loyalty as well.

We are starting to plan for our big Spring dance concert, at the Charles R. Wood Theater on the 16th and 17th of May. We will begin the costuming, choreography, and rehearsals for that shortly after we return from Winter break. Reminder, 2nd trimester tuition is due ASAP.

We would like to wish everyone a fun, safe, and relaxing holiday season as we approach our holiday break from the 22nd of December through the 4th of January. We look forward to seeing everyone's faces as we return from the short vacation!

Carlene, Kim, Bethany, Katie, Robert, Heather, Karen, and Annie
