The Quality Online Class Room Experience - At Home
We asked Dennis Landmesser, how he liked his live streamed class today with instructor Dakota Crist.
The class today with Dakota was more than I could have hoped to expect. I don't know what to rave about more, the quality of the production or the excellence to the class. Dakota thought to ask at the start of class if there were any injuries which was especially meaningful to me today because I have a sore knee. Her instructions were clear and complete and made perfect sense. The corrections were thoughtful and meaningful. Dakota is golden and to be highly valued.
Since March, I've suffered through six months of ZOOM frustrations. ADI has excelled in solving that misery. I could have been watching a high definition BlueRay with Dolby sound.
Thanks for asking,
American Dance Institute also offers Irish dancing lessons for adults, teen Irish dancing, and kids Irish dance classes for ages 4-7.

Meet ADI's Seattle & Shoreline Ballet Teachers
Amy has been dancing with American Dance Institute ever since progressing through our Creative Dance, Pre-Ballet, Children’s Ballet, Junior Ballet and Teen/Adult Ballet programs as a young child.
She participated in and taught dance classes while she attended the University of Portland, but she pursued her passion for language, majoring in English and German. She is now pursuing a Master of Arts in Teaching.
Kids Irish dance students ages 8-14 perform at the May 2018 Artwalk Festival at American Dance Institute along with adults, teens and the wee ones. Watch and enjoy!

Our Irish dance class students performed for the residents of the Sagebrook Senior Home in Ballard as part of Seattle's Saint Paddy's Day Festivities. Students from each of our non-competitive Irish dance classes for kids, volunteer to perform at several local events each year.
Whereas most Irish dance schools require participation in expensive competitions, we do not. Our quality Irish dance program is non-competitive.
I am definitely a fan!
My daughter has taken pre-Irish, and now Irish dance, and a creative dance class for a birthday party where we rented a studio at ADI for a couple of hours. In all cases, I was impressed with the instructors... and they are great with the kids. The office is very helpful and responsive as well. The prices are reasonable.
From my experience with the classes we've taken, they focus on teaching the dance and not doing showy performances with fancy costumes (where your child is on stage for 3 minutes). My daughter is enjoying dance and learning a lot. I'm definitely a fan.
