Hello Shoreline Dancers and Parents,

Our Shoreline dance classes are at 1240 NE 175th St. Suite C, Shoreline, 98155. Our parking lot is in between Europa Car Repair and Peking House Restaurant, around the corner from the Safeway Store on 15th Ave. NE. There are yellow post signs on each side of the entrance to the parking lot. It is an L shaped building and ADI’s Suite C entrance is at the corner of the L, straight in front of you when you drive into the parking lot.  The Dance Studios, waiting areas, Office and Music School are all on the second floor. 

Our Dance Office: The dance office is located in Suite D which is on the right side of the building. Look for the signs for direction. Suite D will also house Shoreline Music School which should open sometime in April or May. The Dance Studios, waiting areas, Office and Music School are all on the second floor. There is a temporary sign on the building for both American Dance Institute and Shoreline Music School. There is ample parking in the lot.


You can find the dress code required for you or your child’s class at the link below.

No worries if you don’t have the dress code the first couple classes, just improvise. A leotard and tights, or leggings and a snug t-shirt will work for most classes to get you started. Please avoid baggy overclothes it is important we can see your spinal alignment. If you don’t have appropriate dance shoes yet, go with a pair of socks.

Dancewear is available for purchase at Centerstage Capezio, located at 5261 University Way NE, Seattle 98115 or online at and use school codeTP120018


We will start a swap box of outgrown ballet slippers, tap and jazz shoes, dress code class leotards, and tights. There’s obviously nothing in there yet as we are starting from scratch, but we would love your donations when attire is outgrown. There is no cost associated with the swap, and you don’t have to put something in to take something out. If it fits, it’s up for grabs. We just ask that you donate it back when your child outgrows it. Reduce, reuse, recycle–it’s good for the planet and good for our pockets.


We understand you are bound to miss a class or two over the semester. We ask that you please let us know of a planned absence–otherwise you will receive an email inquiring if all is okay because we care about you. You are welcome to make up any missed classes in another age/level appropriate class within the session that it is missed. Missed classes cannot be carried over to the next session. If you know you are going to miss class because of a prior commitment, you can make the class up ahead of time if you like. Please let the office know your intent to make up a class so we can give the instructor a heads up to expect you or your child.

END OF YEAR PERFORMANCES: This year, we did in-house recitals/presentations in June for our Creative Dance, pre-level, children and Junior/Teen classes in Shoreline. The larger auditoriums were still in short supply.  Next year, the children’s and Junior//Teen divisions will be in a formal theatre.  The Creative and pre-dance division recitals will remaing in the studio.

NUTCRACKER:  The Moscow Ballet has rebranded nd is now called Nutcracker! to perform There will be no west coast performance's in 2022 and our fingers are crossed for 2023 Last year was our third year as Moscow Ballet’s host school and we cast over 60 dancers, ages 6-18 who danced alongside the principal dancers in this wonderful holiday classic. Audition dates for 2021 TBA. If this is of interest to you, we strongly recommend summer classes so you are in good form for auditions, should we hold them.
