Wait, What? Teachers and students who accept me in dance class as I am?

Casting Shade: Other dance schools say that everyone's welcome but have students who think that class time should focus on them. A non-competitive class culture is better. 

What does a non-competitive adult dance class culture mean here?

It means that everyone in dance class competes with themselves, not with other students, and not with you.

It also means that every student in class will enjoy some of the teacher's time for corrections and encouragement, not compete for it. 

And you're never made to feel judged or 2nd class by the teacher and other students in the room.

The absence of competitive behavior allows for a supportive and encouraging behavior from everyone in the studio.

This is why you will always feel welcome in our Seattle dance studios, in Greenwood, Wedgwood, Magnolia, and in Shoreline, WA and that you belong in the class no matter your proficiency, body type or age.

Seattle dance classes in a wonderful, healthy - non-competitive - environment to learn and dance in.

It's how we dare to be different.

Dance is JOY, come and get some Yours.

Students interested in dance have the opportunity to attend one of Seattle's most friendly, welcoming schools thanks to the American Dance Institute, which boasts a total of six dance studios. 

Our motto is 'no snootiness allowed' and your fellow class mates are going to also be wonderful, non judgmental and happy to have you join them in class.

It makes for an excellent learning environment.

Three studio locations in Seattle, and one in Shoreline, WA so the great news is that in contrast to many other area dance schools, you won't have to travel very far to receive quality instruction or to find a wonderful dance instructor who captures your heart.

We offer a full schedule of beginning and intermediate dance classes for adults ages 15 to 99 and we are one of the few local schools to do this. We also teach juniors and teens ages 11 to 14, and children's dance classes that are appropriately grouped by age and include classes for kids ages 8 to 10, children ages 5-7, and toddler ages 2.5 to 4 years old.

We guarantee that you will have a wonderful and welcoming experience no matter the age of the student. For more than three decades, it has been an integral part of our identity on this emerald isle.
