At sign-in, you will be informed of any last minute substitutions and directed to the studio where your class is held. Class sign-in must be done in person at the Front Desk on the day of class unless otherwise noted.


All of our adult classes are open, drop-in classes, so you can join at anytime during the year with no required commitment. Check out our online schedule, which is designated by genre and level, and consult our Class Level Key to find the class that's right for you.

In addition to a multitude of open classes, we offer many exciting workshops year-round. Workshops and master classes at Peridance offer a unique opportunity for students to observe and experience the technique and repertory of major choreographers, master teachers, and directors from across the globe. They also serve as a platform for participants to be seen by these teaching artists; many of our students have been asked to perform after having been seen in a Peridance workshop!
