PAY TUITION

We just finished an amazing first month of dance classes at DDS and we are thrilled about the excitement and dedication we are seeing in the studio from all of our new and returning students. This year is going to be great!
 

Flu Season is Coming!

Please make sure your dancers are staying healthy. If your dancer is sick please keep them home, or have them sit and watch class. Germs spread easily in the dance studio. Students can always take a make-up class in the same style or different style in the same level or lower level. 
 

Halloween

There are classes on October 31st.

PreDance and Creative Movement kids are welcome to wear their costumes to dance class October 27 - 31. 
 

Dance Attire Reminders

As we continue dance classes through the fall please make sure your student is attending class with the proper dance attire. Dancers should not be entering and exiting the dance studio building in dance shoes and just their leotards. Students should wear pedestrian attire over their dance wear to and from class. Please refer to the CLASSES page for specific class attire clarification. 

  • Ballet 1 - 5 must wear a BLACK Leotard, pink tights and pink ballet shoes with hair in a bun. Please refer to the video below if you are unsure of how to make an easy ballet bun. 

  • NO JEANS, SKIRTS, T-SHIRTS, SWEATERS or SWEATSHIRTS, are allowed in class. If the weather is cold it is okay for students to wear dance warm-ups including legwarmers, leggings, or form-fitting sweaters until their muscles are warm. 

  • All hair must be up off the face and neck in a ponytail, bun, french twist, or similar style. 

  • No hats or bandanas please.

  • Dance shoes are not to be worn outside. Please remember even the quick jump from the car can hurt the life of your shoes as well as cause destruction to our expensive dance floor.



Not sure where to find dance clothes for your student? Check out Fuzi in Bellevue on 126th, or Dance On In  in Kirkland. No time to make it to the store, go to Discount Dance Supply - a great online resource for all clothing and accessories dance related
