Preschool-K Classes

Preschool-K classes at the Creative Dance Center are drop-off classes. CDC schedules Visiting Weeks approximately halfway through and during the last week of our sessions. 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 Preschool-K teachers will communicate with you if there are any issues that come up regarding separation, behavior, and/or participation in class. We will do our best to resolve these issues with you, 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 may be more developmentally appropriate. Please call the School Director at 206-363-7281 if you are unsure of appropriate class placement for your child or email terry@creativedance.org.
