  • Where are you located?
    We are located at 831 Selden Street in Detroit, MI, on the corner of Selden St., between 3rd and 4th.

Enrollment is ongoing throughout the dance season, based on class availability. - Our 8-week Dancing Tots sessions occur throughout the dance season. We normally have two sessions in the Fall, Winter, and seasons. Join our mailing list to keep updated on when Dancing Tots enrollment opens.
  • Why is your monthly tuition higher than other studios in the area?
    Actually, our all-inclusive tuition rates are very comparable to other studios in the metro area. Based on feedback received from our dance families, we've streamlined our dance package to include class tuition, costumes, and concert participation to be spread out monthly over the dance season. No surprises and no extra fees are billed to our families during the dance season. Please check out our "Tuition & Fees" tab for detailed information.
  • My dancer has dance experience, which classes should I place them in?
    All dancers who have prior dance training are welcome to be evaluated for class placement. Please keep checking our website and social media platforms for upcoming evaluation dates and times.
  • Can my child try-out a class?
    Absolutely! We offer trial classes for all of our dance programs. Normally, we offer the opportunity to trial classes after the month of October in the current dance season.
  • Are classes co-ed?
    Yes. All classes are co-ed. Should there be an interest in gender specific classes (i.e. boys tap/hip-hop) we will try our best to accomodate the request, based on the number of interested registrants.
  • I have a special needs dancer. Will this studio be able to accomodate?
    Yes. We have an number of instructors that have experience in working with students who need special accomodations. Please reach out to us and we will set up a time to meet and evaluate how best to highlight your dancers unique abilities.
  • Are parents allowed to attend or sit-in class with their preschool dancer?
    Our Dancing Tots program (2 to age 3.5) welcomes parents/guardians to participate in class with their dancer. However, for our Belle Isle Bunnies program (ages 3.5 - 5), we do not have parents/guardians view the class while in session. In this program we are preparing our young children to become focused, independent dancers. Adults sitting in the class or peeking through the doorway can cause a distraction to your dancer, as well as other dancers in class. If you have a dancer who wants to dance but still has separation issues, we welcome you to enroll in our "Dancing Tots" program, where all are welcome, regardless of age.
  • Will your adult classes be appropriate for those ages 50+?
    Absolutely! Our adult classes are appropriate for all levels and abilities, regardless of age.

Tuition & Fees

All-Inclusive Amenities.png

Registration Fee

There is a $30.00, per student ($120 per family) non-refundable annual registration fee, which covers the entire dance year from August - July

Monthly Tuition

DDC's tuition covers the dance season, which spans from September to June—understanding that our monthly tuition is not determined by the number of classes in a particular month. Instead, the total tuition for the dance season is divided by the number of months remaining in the program, regardless of how many classes are held during a specific month. This means that your tuition remains unchanged, regardless of whether there are three (3) or five (5) classes in a month due to the calendar or school vacations. All tuition is paid for via auto-pay on the 15th of each month.

*Full Year Discount
There is a 5% discount for tuition paid in full at the beginning of the dance season in September.
