The annual PDT Showcase offers students a thrilling and rewarding onstage experience. Choreography is taught during the late winter and spring in the final 10-15 minutes of regular class time — we believe class should be spent building holistic skill rather than practicing for a “routine.” This balanced approach helps the dancers meet the challenges of performing with polish, confidence, and excitement, and to leave the theater having had a bright and fulfilling experience
While the showcase is professionally produced, families are not required to purchase expensive costumes. The performance is intended to highlight the students, their work, and their accomplishments.
Please note that students who participate in the showcase may be photographed and/or videotaped for promotional purposes. Registration fees paid are non-refundable.
No photography or videography is permitted during the performance. A link to the video will be available to all participating families in the weeks following the performance. Families who would like to purchase a DVD may do so.
Register online or in person. Registration MUST be accompanied by the initial payment.

We offer a 2, 4, & 8 installment payment plan. Installment plans carry a $15 fee per enrolled class, per installment. For multiple-class enrollment, installment fees cap at $30.
Please note that our policy does not guarantee make-up classes.
Make-ups may be arranged for Dance With Me, Pre-Primary, and Adult/Teen Ballet classes at the discretion of the instructor if space is available in a comparable class.
Dancers in Levels 1 through Level 3 may take a make-up class on an alternate day from their usual schedule at the discretion of the instructor. CP, Level 4, and Level 5 students may make up classes in a level below their own if cleared by the instructor and arranged through the office.
Primary A, B, and C students may be allowed one make-up class per semester IF there is space in a comparable class. All make-ups must be scheduled through the office. If make-up classes are misused and/or if parents bring students to make-up classes without advance scheduling, we reserve the right to amend our policies to disallow make-ups.
Those registering after the start of classes will be charged based on a prorate of the 32-week session. Any class with a registration of seven students or less may be cancelled at the discretion of the Director.
BALLET PLACEMENT CLASSES:
New ballet students Level 1 and above must schedule a placement class. Dancers in Dance With Me, Pre-Primary, and Primary levels must be of specified age by September 30th. Only a PDT instructor can finalize level placement.
Prospective students may take a risk-free trial class. No fee will be charged if the student decides not to register. If the student registers for the class, the cost of the trial class will be included in the overall tuition. For classes with a “drop-in” option (e.g. Adult/Teen Jazz and Adult Beginner Ballet), risk-free trials are only offered during the first week of a session. After that, students wishing to take a trial class must pay the drop-in fee.
Initial payment does not include the $45 non-refundable registration fee (assessed per year, per family). This fee will be added to your balance and is due with the first installment. The registration fee applies to school-year classes only. There is no registration fee assessed for Dance With Me or other classes offered in 10- and 12-week sessions.
