Sullivan Dance Centre is a private dance academy. In order to maintain acceptable and professional teacher/student ratio and preserve the studio’s comprehensive curriculum, we do not offer open classes or classes to students that study at other schools. It is important to us that we maintain an appropriate artistic aesthetic within a set curriculum.

Parents and students must have the desire to study exclusively with the Sullivan Dance Centre to be considered for admission to the program. Students may study whatever classes they like, however, they must be studying at the Sullivan Dance Centre exclusively.

Placement classes operate as a normal class, this is not an audition. In order for a child to have the best training possible, appropriate placement is key. Class placement may not be equal to placement attained in another program however, all parents can be assured that placement is in the best interest of your child’s future growth and development as a dancer.
