  • 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. Here's why.
  • What do non-competitive adult dance classes mean here?
  • It means that everyone in dance class competes with themselves, not with other students, and not with you.
  • It means that every student in class will enjoy some of the teacher's time for corrections and encouragement, not compete for it. 
  • It means that 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 greater Seattle dance classes, 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.
