COVID-19 Updates   expand

Skidmore College is closely monitoring the situation related to Coronavirus (COVID-19) and will continue to work with and follow the guidelines of the CDC, the New York State Department of Health and the Saratoga County Department of Health.

Varone and his dancers are widely-known for their ability to connect with people of all ages and backgrounds and they continue to be among the most sought-after ambassadors and educators in the dance field. They are equally at home mentoring the next generation of artists and dance-makers in the studio, or taking audience members deeper into the work through their Exploring Repertory demonstrations. Daily workshop classes will be supplemented by a series of events open to the public.
