FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Can I take a drop-in class?
You can take a drop-in class for the first class of the term at a cost of $22. Participants who would like to register after taking this drop-in class will receive a $22 credit applied to their registration fee for the term. To reserve a spot, we recommend that you register online in advance. Please specify on the form that it is a drop-in class. However, if the maximum of 25 participants is reached following the first class, we will not be able to accept additional registrations. Please note that priority is given to those who have registered for the term and who have paid the registration fee in advance, then to those who choose to register to the session.
 
Are drop-in classes available for the whole session?
Participants can take drop-in classes between session 1 and 11, with the last class (session 12) being a free observation class. As the learning pace increases during the session, participants taking drop-in classes need to be aware of the difficulties and risks associated to the cadence of the class. Depending on the progression of the session, it may be preferable to follow a class of lower level.
 
Do I need to complete the form if I only take drop-in classes?
All drop-in participants must fill out a registration form once per term. By registering for drop-in classes using our online form, you will avoid having to fill it out on site. You only have to pay the fee for your class at the School’s reception before your class starts. Please note that online payment is not available for drop-in classes. Drop-in classes are subject to availability. Maximum of 25 people per class.
 
If I was registered in the last term, do I need to fill out the form again?
All participants must complete a registration form every term.
 
Is there any requirements to participate to a dance class?
Participants can determine which level suits them through the following:
- Adult Beginner: profile – The participant has never taken any kind of dance style.
- Adult 1: profile – The participant has already taken recreational dance classes (any kind of dance style).
- Adult 2: profile –  The participant has taken at least 1-2 year(s) the Adult 1 class.
- Adult 3: profile – The participant has taken at least 2 years the Adult 2 class.
