23-24 New Student Registration

An intake interview is required for all new students and is held prior to the start of the school year. We use information from the registration materials and intake interview to make a placement recommendation and do our best to find a class for all interested students. If the recommended class is full, individuals may be placed on a waitlist. Please note, the $25 intake interview registration fee is non-refundable and will be applied towards Adaptive Dance tuition if you decide to register for the program. Intake interviews take place over the phone between a family member and a member of staff. Intake interviews will re-open in July 2023.
