About the Party

Parties require the rental of two separate spaces in the Dance Center. Our flex-studio is used for gathering and refreshments and a studio space is used for the dance class.

The Dance Center provides:

  • access to two spaces
  • tables and chairs
  • party assistant
  • dance instructor(s)
  • musician
  • set-up and clean-up with garbage removal

The renter is responsible for all décor, refreshments (including cake or cupcakes), paper goods, and favors. All of these items can be set up in the flex-lounge space and must remain there for the duration of the party. Once the date has been reserved and the $100 non-refundable deposit is received, you will receive a contract for the event which outlines all party policies. The remaining balance for the party is due one week prior to the event date.

Children’s parties are typically two hours with the following timeline:

  • 15 minutes – welcome arrivals in the flex-lounge space
  • 45 – 50 minutes – dance class in the studio with musician
  • 45 minutes – refreshments and celebration in the flex-lounge space
  • 15 minutes clean-up

You may arrive up to but no more than 30 minutes prior to the start of your rental period for set-up, and must exit at the end of the 2-hour rental.

One week prior to your event we will email finalized details including the total number of participants and the name of the party host who will be your on-site point of contact for the event. Your party host will assist you with set-up and clean-up, answer any questions you may have, keep the pace of the event on track, and monitor your belongings in the flex-lounge space while you are participating in the dance class portion of the party.

General availability:

Date to be negotiated. You can reserve a date up to 3 months in advance.
