Seattle Dance Classes For Adult Beginners

  • Beginners will receive a lot of personal attention and they will progress quickly as a result.
  • Beginners will learn in beginning classes that move at a slower pace.
  • You and your fellow classmates will all share in the dance class experience. It's an opportunity to make new friends or spend quality time with existing friends.
  • No need to feel intimidated. Students who have never had any dance training will be carefully and patiently guided from the ground up.
  • Find a class that matches your experience level and we can help you find that.

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

Here's why.

What does 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.

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.

This is why you will always feel welcome in our Seattle dance classes, 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 get some.

I took dance here (adult ballet), and loved it so much I enrolled my toddler in a class too. Very friendly folks, cool little dance studios with a bright, lofted feel. Good for the body and spirit!
