School Calendar


Columbia Dance Families,

Many of you have had questions regarding our school calendar and whether we hold classes on holidays observed by our school district. Columbia Dance Center follows the Vancouver School District policy for closure due to inclement weather only. Though we occasionally close for observed holidays, we do not follow all school holiday closures. Please see our Columbia Dance School Calendar for information on our school closures. Thank you!
