We are excited to offer Tap Dance for 2nd-4th grades, Hip Hop for 1st-3rd grades, Hip Hop for 4th-6th grades, and a restorative and grounding Yoga Family Fun class for ages 3-4 with parent/caregiver and 5-6 years with or without parent/caregiver… a great way to settle and reboot before the late afternoon and evening busy-ness begins at home! Yoga Family Fun will run as a 10-week Fall session, a 12-week Winter session, and a 10-week Spring session. And of course we've got our popular and award-winning Nurturing Baby, Parent/Toddler, Parent/Tot/Child, Parent/Child, Dance & Art, Creative Dance, Creative Ballet, Pre-Ballet, Ballet, Creative Modern, and Modern classes on our schedule for you to choose from.

Adaptive Dance for ages 8-18, an inclusive class for all abilities, is held on Tuesdays from 5:50-6:50pm. This class will run as a 10-week Fall session, a 12-week Winter session, and a 10-week Spring session.

CDC schedules Visiting/Observation Weeks approximately halfway through and during the last week of our sessions. Summer Session Visiting Week is the last class of the session. If your child will be dancing in a class without parent participation (Creative Dance, Dance & Art, and Creative Ballet classes for 3 1/2 years and up) please share with them that they will be dancing with their teacher and other children and you will be nearby in our waiting room. For your child's first class at CDC you are welcome to come into the studio and observe the first few minutes of class, we then ask you to quietly step out. Our waiting room has tables, chairs, toys, crayons, paper, and a library of wonderful books for children and adults. Our instructors will communicate with you if there are any issues that come up regarding separation and participation in class. We will do our best to resolve these issues keeping in mind what will work best for the individual child and the class as a whole. If your young child is not ready to dance on their own, Parent/Child class or Yoga Family fun with parent/caregiver may be more developmentally appropriate. Please call CDC Director, Terry Goetz, at 206-363-7281 if you are unsure of appropriate class placement for your child or email

Kids: they dance before they learn there is anything that isn’t music.

  • Our Children & Teens program offers a variety of classes, including creative dance, pre-ballet, ballet, and modern, for the serious dance student as well as those who want fun, exercise, and the chance to develop dance and movement skills in a non-threatening and positive environment.

Dance is music made visible.
~George Balanchine

  • Our Adult Program welcomes novice and experienced dancers. Whether you want to develop or fine-tune dance skills, foster creative growth, get your heart rate up and laugh and sweat, or strengthen body and mind, the Creative Dance Center’s Adult Program has the right class for you.

There is a bit of insanity in dancing that does everybody a great deal of good.
