New students should check out the Workshops and June Term pages of our website for new, upcoming sessions!

  

All classes except those specified otherwise run through June 7, 2021.  We reserve the right to make adjustments to the schedule and to cancel classes with insufficient enrollment.  The class schedule below is for classes held at the Bangor location.

 

Class sizes are limited for the health and safety of our dancers, families and community based on spacing guidelines for fitness and exercise centers as per Maine CDC & DECD guidelines. Due to limited class sizes we are currently unable to accommodate drop-ins and adult dance card use to in-person classes.  Adult dance card holders can have any remaining classes converted to monthly or semester tuition or can hold onto their dance cards for when we are again able to accommodate varying numbers of dancers within classes.  Adult dance cards may be used for virtual classes and in-person classes taken virtually.

 

Class spots will be filled on a first come, first served basis; spots cannot be held without receipt of registration & waiver forms & registration payment. We expect many classes will fill early and will do our best to add additional sections of classes as interest supports.

 

  

Registration for our 2020-2021 season begins on August 24, 2020; registration forms are available below.  4, 6, 8 and 10 week classes and “workshops” should be pre-registered, inclusive of payment, a minimum of 7 days before the class/workshop start date.  All ongoing classes not otherwise specified below are charged on the 2020-2021 tuition fee table. Please see the registration page for further pricing and discount information. Please see the workshop page for school vacation workshops and additional workshops!

Please note all classes are held in person unless otherwise specifically noted.   If you would like to enroll in one of our “in person” classes virtually, please email thomasschoolofdance@gmail.com; we will do our best to accommodate these requests where equipment/technology allows.
