DaySpring has Moved!

We are proud to announce that our new facility is open!  Our new location, just across Dorsett at 2500 Metro Blvd., more than quadruples our space.  This immediately allows for dedicated department space, room for growth and new programs, a black box theatre for the use of our students and others in the community and more of a permanent presence in the immediate community and the Metro St. Louis region.  Future plans include a theatre.

Be on the lookout for special events soon to celebrate this milestone!

You can also check out our facebook page for regular updates on our progress.

Snow Day Policies

As the winter is upon us, we thought it'd be a good idea to refresh everyone on our Snow Day policies.  

We will always post on the homepage of the website, and post on the local news stations.

Daytime classes will be posted as DaySpring Academy.

Performing Arts & Dance clases (anything after 2:30) will be posted as DaySpring School of the Arts.  Please check with your private music lesson instructor to be sure of their plans.

**Just because we are closed during the day does not mean we are closed at night.
