Wow, is this what I look like?  In my mind I am still 26. This photo tells a truer story... I'm 46 and loving ballet class at home (but not as much as at the studio).

Why Live Streamed Dance Classes?

Live stream dance classes are the perfect solution to sheltering in place activity challenges that are structured, fun, and 100% risk-free. We have closed our schools to stop or flatten the spread rate of the Covid virus and begun live-streaming our dance classes!

We are currently providing live-stream or (home-stream as we like to call them) interactive dance classes to all of our adult and child students, with new class material each week. 

Student attendance has been very positive. Dance students appreciate the interaction with the teacher and their classmates.

How do I participate?

If you'd like to take a class with us, you will find live stream dance classes in our classes schedules. There is a class schedule on each class page i.e. Adult Ballet,  Kid's Hip Hop, just two examples. There are many more dance styles and age groups to choose from in our menu in the upper right hand corner of each page. Register for a class, and we will send you a link to attend. 

Note: Our class listing times are Pacific Time Zone-Adjust your start time accordingly.

How do I take dance classes during quarantine?

On most of our class schedule pages you will find FOUR different ways to take a class:

    1. Regular In-Studio Classes:  Studios located in Seattle's Wedgwood, Greenwood & Magnolia neighborhoods and in Shoreline's North City neighborhood. (Currently on hold)

    2. In-Studio Classes-Live Streamed: Our regular in studio classes currently taught online (during  quarantine)

    3. 'Ongoing' Live Streamed Classes: These classes begin Tuesday May 25th and will be ongoing after the quarantine ends.

    4. '30 Day Ballet': An fun, engaging beginning ballet class that you can take from home On Demand.

Can I take a Trial Dance Class First?

Yes! If you're not sure, and want to experience a class before you sign on, take a free Live Stream Trial Class. There's no obligation, no credit card required. The button to register for your Trial Class is in the same column on the class page where you find your class.

We believe that dance lessons shouldn't be an optional activity. Dance classes provide significant physical and mental health benefits, calm and normalcy during times of challenge, and disruption. Dancing is an excellent means of coping with disrupted lives, is very therapeutic and fun!

My daughter Rachel-Winslow is in the middle of the online class with Cassie.  Wow!   I can’t thank you enough for providing a little bit normal right now. Well done! 

And also, teacher Cassie knows how to make each child feel special - even over the internet.  She’s so talented and wonderful.

A big shout out Morgan Thompson for doing a great job leading our virtual adult hip hop class! It was fun and energizing to see everyone’s faces up on the Zoom screen

Thanks to ADI for making it happen and to Morgan for making it FUN!!

Rene Murry (Student)

This is a great idea and Taylor will definitely join! Appreciate you setting it up :)

We’d take advantage of this if it were offered more than 1X week—just to help the kids stay active.

Stay safe!
