ADULT CLASSES at Hyde Park School of Dance: How does it work?

Hyde Park School of Dance offers a number of classes of varying levels for adult students aged 19 and up.

All of the classes in our adult program are open to drop-in participation, allowing adult students to join our program at any time. There's no need to register, schedule attendance for specific classes, or let us know if you can't make it to your usual class. All you have to do is show up to the classes you wish to attend!

These classes are mixed-level, and are appropriate for intermediate dancers, adults who danced as children but have taken years off, and brand new novices alike!

When can I start?

Any time!  There’s no need to wait until the next enrollment period - adults who are just beginning with us may attend their first class at any point during the session. Classes specifically designed for adults attending on a drop-in basis are always listed on our current class schedule. Find a class you’re interested in and come as soon as you’re able!


 

How do I pay?

Pay As You Go
When you pay as you go, you’ll fill out the information on one of the payment envelopes located in each of our studio lobbies, slip your payment inside, and hand the envelope to the instructor as you enter for class.

Class Cards
If you are attending classes on a regular basis, you may prefer to pay using one of our Eight Class Cards. Class cards can be purchased through your instructor or in the HPSD office. Each card is non-refundable and never expires. Bring your class card to the studio and you won’t have to fill out a payment envelope, write a check, or worry about exact cash – your instructor will simply mark your attendance on the card, and you’ll be good to go. You can use your class card to attend any of our adult classes at any time.
