Walk-up registrations will not be allowed. Students are asked to limit the items they bring with them to the studio to a water bottle and purse/dance bag.

Questions? Email us at


Have a few questions? Check out these FAQs about our virtual and in-studio adult classes:


  • What if a class I want to take is already full? If a class is full you can add you/your child to the class waitlist. If a spot becomes available, you will be notified by phone.
  • What if I purchase a virtual class and the class is about to start and I do not have the class link? After checking your spam folder, reach out to us in a private message on Facebook or email and we’ll do our best to get the link to you asap.
  • When will I receive a link for a pre-recorded class that I purchased? A link will be emailed to you approximately one hour before the class was advertised to be available. Pre-recorded classes are accessible for 24 hours from the day it was scheduled.
  • What happens if I register for a class and then can’t make it to the class? Danceworks has a no refund policy. If you pre register for a class using a class card, weekly/monthly pass, or pay for it as a single class, you will be charged for the class. This policy is in place due to the very limited capacity we have for each class.
  • Why don’t I get Danceworks emails with class information? Make sure we have your most updated contact information. Is it possible that you might have unsubscribed from our emails?  This might be another reason why you haven’t heard from us. If so, no worries- we can add you back on. Please email with any questions regarding our mailing list.
  • Does Danceworks take walk-in registrations? Due to COVID-19, we are limiting our class sizes and all registrations must be made at least 2 hours before a class is scheduled to begin to ensure we do not exceed our capacities.


Our students are an important part of Danceworks and their safety is our first priority. As we reopen we will be implementing procedures to create a safe environment for our students, staff, and faculty. Click here to read more!
