Pre-registration is not required. The CDE recommends that students arrive at least 5 minutes prior to class start time in order to complete check-in in a timely fashion.

Student/Senior rates require a valid college ID or driver's license with proof of age 55+. Professional rates require a current professional dance card, theatre union card, or pay stub.

No refunds.
