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 from everyone in the studio.

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 and get some You​​​​rs.
