1. We guarantee your complete satisfaction:
If you are not completely satisfied with our school, our teachers, and your experience, we will refund 100% of your tuition. No other school dares to make this promise.
2. Zero intimidation:
We teach our students to compete with their ‘self best’ rather than against others who may have more or less natural ability. Our methods foster inclusiveness and camaraderie. Students willingly try new steps, leaps and lessons without fear of criticism, ridicule or snickering.
3. Our classes are fantastic.
They are fun, high energy, creative, and will give you a total work out. Our incredibly talented University trained Instructors include some who have been with us for over twenty years! We only hire the best, the other schools get the rest. Whether you are an aspiring or an accomplished dancer, or just looking for a fun recreational activity, American Dance Institute has a class that is a perfect fit. Peruse our large class selection and sign up on-line.
4. Unique Performance Philosophy:
Many dance school recitals are a rip off. Young children love to perform but don’t need to be paraded across a big stage to get that thrill. And three minutes on a stage cannot possibly convey how much they’ve learned all year. Parents love our no cost, informal, in-house presentations. There are no costume fees or tickets fees. Our presentations are no stress, more intimate and an excellent value! Additional performance opportunities abound for our older, upper level students at city wide and neighborhood events such as Greenwood Art Walk, Phinney Winter Festival, Seattle City Streets, and the Greenwood Seafair Parade.
5. Other schools cost more.
Don’t be fooled by tuition prices alone. ADI’s exclusive teaching methods, guarantee that students progress further, faster and safer. Eliminate unnecessary costume and recital fees, and your education dollars earn the best return.
6. Founder’s Devotion:
Founder and director, Elizabeth Chayer has devoted 25 years to the refinement of her school’s curriculum in the pursuit of a singular goal, excellence in dance instruction. You or your child will be the beneficiary of this painstaking devotion and you can only get it at ADI.
7. We are not a fluff school:
Our organic, holistic approach contrasts sharply with other schools. We don’t take the “processed white sugar” approach where instead of a solid dance foundation, it’s all about cutie costumes, competitions, and garish make up. That’s not dance.
8.We are not a gulag:
Too many dance schools are cold regimented training centers that separate parent and child. Unlike many schools which don’t allow parents to watch classes, we have pleasant waiting areas with large observation windows so parents can watch their children advance. We also have separate waiting areas equipped with blocks and toys for younger siblings, and quiet areas where school age siblings can do homework and moms can nurse their babies with less background noise. There is also free Wi-Fi for your convenience. We love our families and strive to make you all feel right at home.
9. Essential for sports and athletics:
Schools and Universities seek students with proficiency in scholastics and athletics. Dance provides an essential foundation for both. The strength, balance and coordination students develop through ADI’s dance program will serve them in all areas of their lives. Dance comes first.
10. Excellence & Prestige:
American Dance Institute is about to begin its 25th year in Seattle. We have educated over 10,000 happy students since 1989. Our former students now enroll their children here. That is quite the validation. In these tough economic times you can still afford a venerable school with a solid reputation and reliable track record.
