“Dancin’ Stars has offered dance classes to the students at Edmonds Community School over the past two years. This has given many students who might not otherwise have had this experience, an opportunity to try this form of dance. Many have loved it and signed up repeatedly for the classes.
The commitment to our school shown by Sonica and the staff of Dancin’ Stars has been amazing and truly a benefit to our students. The caliber of instruction provided by the dance instructors and their warm, caring connection to the students has made this one of the most popular after-school programs we have offered and is enriching the lives of those participating.
Thank you Sonica and the staff at Dancin’ Stars for your amazing contribution to our children and families.”

“I would highly recommend taking dance lessons at Dancin’ Stars. We learned our wedding dance there and thoroughly enjoyed our lessons. Angela’s choreography was amazing – it was so much fun and Angela took our suggestions and tailored our dance to be exactly what we wanted. Our dance was a hit – everyone loved the choreography it and we really enjoyed performing it! Dancin’ Stars was so helpful, friendly and accommodating. Thank you so much Dancin’ Stars!

Every year we try new things in hopes to develop and grow the studio, this was the first year we offered two different programs “technique classes” and “recital classes.” The program was a huge success and we will be offering it once again next year. The idea between the classes is described below.
Focus will be on proper technique, flexibility, strength, stamina and musicality will be emphasized in these classes. Short combinations will be learned to assist students in the ability top pick up choreography and combine the technique they have learned with stylized moves. Technique classes do not have a performance piece and will not perform in our year end recital.
The focus is on performance. Students will be learning basic technique but the majority of the class will focus on routine, stage presence etc. Recital classes may have a wide variety of age groups and ability. This is because these classes are performance based, and teachers can work with different ages and levels to create a dynamic performance piece. Recital classes perform at our year end recital.
*For students taking both technique and recital class – we will have a reduced rate for the 2nd class.
These classes are for students to compete and perform throughout the year. They must be available from September to June to participate in a variety of dance shows and competitions. These students must be committed and dedicated. They will also have the wonderful opportunity to also do solos, duos, and trios if desired. In order to participate in a Competitive class, students must take at least two technique classes.
