The following classes are open-level (beginners welcome!) drop-in classes (no pre-registration required)! Each class is $10, but if you take 2 classes on the same night, the 2nd class is only $5! We also offer class cards at 5 classes for $40 and 10 classes for $70.

A note about attendance: we typically get a nice turn-out in our adult classes, but should just one dancer come for any class, it is at the instructor's discretion whether to run the full hour-long class or offer a 30-minute private lesson (still a great value at this price). We appreciate your understanding!


Attire: We're not picky! Please plan to wear something that allows you to move freely and feels comfortable for you. We recommend you NOT wear anything restrictive (like jeans) - even for Tap classes. For Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz and Stretch/Yoga classes, please consider wearing something at least slightly form-fitting, so the instructor can see your form enough to make helpful corrections.

Footwear for Dance Classes:

Ballet: ballet shoes or bare feet

Hip Hop: dance sneakers or tennis shoes (clean soles, please)

Modern and Contemporary: bare feet

Jazz: jazz shoes or bare feet

Tap: tap shoes - preferably with low heels (as opposed to character-style, high-heeled shoes)

Stretch and Yoga: bare feet 

Interested in private instruction with one of our DancEast Instructors? Please contact us directly and we will be happy to connect you with one of our instructors! The rate is $70/hour. 


Our Tap dance series for adults DO require pre-registration (and class cards cannot be used for Tap series classes). New Sunday evening series will begin January 7. Register now!

Beginner Tap Series, Sundays Jan. 7-28, 4:30-5:20 PM  Pre-registration required, $50 for 4-class series OR REGISTER FOR JAN. AND FEB. SERIES AND GET ALL 8 CLASSES FOR $90*
This class is for those who have never tapped, those who tapped in the past but need a thorough review of basic tap skills, and those who would like to continue to work on the skills they've been learning in tap classes at DancEast!

Technique covered will not be the same as what will be covered in the January series, so taking both the Jan. and Feb. series will be a great way to learn a LOT of new tap dance skills! Can't do the Jan. series? No problem! The Feb. series can be taken on its own, as well.

PLEASE NOTE: Registration for a tap series assumes you will attend those classes (or at least the majority of those classes). Instructors will not be able to offer individual make-up classes or take-home material for you to learn at home should you miss a class. Attending Feb. session classes as "make-ups" for missed Jan. classes will not be an option. 

*$10 off full tuition cost when you register and pay for both series at the same time.
