Registration & Calendar Overview
All That Dance classes are designed to be delivered over the course of a year-long curriculum (September to June). This means that we almost always keep dancers in the same class level for the full dance year (a 17-week Fall Session, followed by a 17-week Spring Session). Summer Session (8 weeks, mid-June to August) is a time to brush up on skills and try new things. Each session includes a Watching Week.
One of the strengths of our program is that we group dancers closely together in classes by age and skill level. We do this through our well-developed system of Personalized Recommendations. Our age cut-off date is September 1st. Classes displayed for students online will reflect their age as of this date.
Key dates are listed on our Calendar page.
The Fall Session is a 17-class session, mid-September to the end of January. We typically don't have classes the week of Thanksgiving and during a two-week Winter Break. Every year in mid-July, each student who was with us in the prior Spring Session will receive Checklists/Class Recommendations. The Checklist(s) show how the student is progressing in the All That Dance curriculum. This information is announced via email and available in your family account on our Web site. The Class Recommendations are the classes that the student will be eligible to register for the Fall Session.
Registration is first-come, first-served. No priority registration. The first day of registration is typically on a Sunday at the beginning of August. Students are able to join classes mid-way through the Fall Session and tuition will be pro-rated beginning the fourth week.
The Spring Session is a 17-class session, February to mid-June. We typically don't have classes the week of Spring Break (coinciding with Seattle Public Schools). The Spring Session schedule remains the same as the Fall Session. All Fall Session students get Priority Registration, which means we hold their Spring Session roster spot, typically until mid-December. A "Shuffle Period" follows in which Fall Session students can try to switch classes (same level but different day and time). After that, typically the beginning of January, we open up registration to all students.
Spring Session students in our school age and adult classes get the opportunity to perform in our annual Spring Shows. Specific scheduling information about the shows, including dates and times for the show and a mandatory rehearsal are available in early February. Participation in the shows is optional.
Students are limited in joining performing classes mid-way through the Spring Session.
The Summer Session is a 8-class session, mid-June to the middle of August. We offer classes, which generally have a bit wider skill level of students compared to Fall Session and Spring Session. We also have week-long camps that focus on a particular style or two of dance and always conclude the week with a half-hour show for parents to see what their dancers have learned.
