We are a community funded, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to celebrating the art of dance.
We are a community of people who share a passion for the performing arts. Located in downtown Everett, The Dance School welcomes all members of the community to dance with us. We are committed to providing a safe, positive environment where all students can feel empowered, comfortable and free to express themselves.
We believe dance should be accessible to everyone! Through donations and grants, we offer talent scholarships and need-based financial scholarships. Awards range from 50-100% off tuition.
ANYONE CAN DANCE! We offer a variety of classes for all ages and abilities. We have programming at all levels. If you are new to dance, or very experienced, there is a class at The Dance School for you.
Join our growing dance family! If you have questions about our programs or if you need help choosing a class that’s right for you please contact us. Or if you are ready to dance with us, register online here.

We are offering free 6-week series for students in grades K-1 and grades 2-3 to combine literacy and communication skills with movement and self-expression through the performance art form of dance. Students will combine writing, poetry, voice and movement to create a story as original as they are. Through this program, students will be able to pick their own interests to write and develop stories with experiences that interest them.
This class is offered at three locations! Everett, Marysville and Lake Stevens – Visit our storytelling page for more information and to register!
As a non-profit organization, we depend on the generosity and support of our community. Tuition funds approximately 70% of our operating expenses and the rest comes from individual, foundation, public agencies and corporate support. All donations, no matter their size, help us continue the legacy of dance in downtown Everett.
This annual day of giving falls on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving, it encourages people to give – whether it’s some of your time, a donation, or the power of your voice in your local community. We are asking you to join us in celebrating Giving Tuesday by donating to support The Dance School. This year, we are collecting donations to help us replace the water fountain in our lobby. The goal amount is $1,400, the cost of a new fountain. Our current water fountain is missing two buttons, and with an increase of use each day we are ready for an upgrade. All donations, no matter their size will help us with our water fountain fund.
