How to Find the Right Class

Here is some information on the placement and typical progression of dancers in the programs at Alderwood Dance Spectrum.  We would welcome the opportunity to help plan your dancer’s training and education.  You can contact us with any questions about appropriate classes.

Payment Policies

  • There is a $30 registration fee per year for the first student in the family. Each additional family member is $20. There is no registration fee for Summer Session.
  • Tuition will be automatically deducted from your checking account (please provide routing and account numbers) or charged to your credit card on the 1st of the month. If you wish to pay by credit card, there is an additional $3 or 3% per month handling charge for credit card transactions.
  • Class fees are based on a 37-week term for the September – June session. Tuition is divided into equal installments based on a four-week month. Months with five weeks will be charged the same payment to offset the months with less than 4 weeks. 
  • Students entering late will pay full fee.  
  • Missed lessons may be made up based on available class space.
  • Private and semi-private lessons are available.
  • Trial classes are available and the fee may be applied to your enrollment.
  • No refunds will be given.

When to Register

Our dance season follows the academic year, September to mid-June, culminating in our annual June Recital.  Because our classes have a sequential curriculum and build from week to week, we only enroll students in September, in January, or for our 6-week Summer Session.  (Sometimes students can enter later and catch up by taking make-up lessons.)  In the fall, students begin learning dances for the December Holiday Show and in January, costumes are ordered for our June Recital.

There are some exceptions:  classes that are working on technique only and not choreography for a performance, may accept new students at other times.  Check with us.

Fairy Tale Princesses classes are offered seasonally.  Usually offered as series of six different princesses, sometimes classes may be taken individually if space is available.
