  • Wednesdays, Sept 27 through Oct 18

In-person at The Russian Community Center of Seattle. We will definitely take all precautions and will notify all students should Covid safety become a concern and we are switching to remote.


Anyone and everyone (21+) who is happy to wear the “team costume” is WELCOME to take part!


This Sept/Oct 2023, we’re presenting a very classic chorus line number, inspired by classic jazz movement of the 1930s.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

What will I wear?

For class sessions, wear anything comfy that you can move and sweat in. We recommend that you wear the shoes you will perform in (a black t-strap heel) so you are accustomed to how they will feel.

For the performance costume, we will be asking folks to purchase a pair of costume bat wings (exact link coming soon!), and then you may wear whatever solid black skirt/shirt and/or dress that you like! More info coming soon….

If you have any questions/concerns around costuming, please don’t hesitate to reach out to us:  

Do I have to perform or can I just take the class for fun?

It is not required that you participate in the performance to take the class, although what’s the fun in that?

Can anyone perform?

As long as you are willing to wear the “costume look”, and attend all the class rehearsals (unless sick), then you’re absolutely in for performing! We do have a requirement that if you are sick and need to miss the final class, that you unfortunately will need to step out for the performance.

What if I have other questions later?

You can post them to our student Facebook group, or email us at


We’ll start off each class with some sort of warm-up, whether that be a freestyle dance or simply running the routine we’ve learned.

Please note that due to our limited time together, we don’t have time to stretch while together, so please make sure to stretch on your own after class. If at any time you need to step aside to grab a drink of water or go to the washroom, please do at any time!

UPDATED: September 2023 for SKDC

  • If you are feeling unwell, please stay home. We always post a review video for you to catch up on your own.
  • Please note: As a small business, we reserve the right to request students start to wear masks again, should a new variant start to emerge that is cause for concern. Our community’s safety is a top priority for us
  • In the event that the CDC and King County Public Health deem it is unsafe to continue dancing indoors together, we will shift to virtual for the remainder of the class and for the performance.

In the event that you test positive for covid and have been in class with us in the most recent 3-4 days, please do let the instructors and co-students know, so that we may all choose to get tested if individuals feel they would like to. Our biggest priority is safety for our community. Thank you for helping us to keep it safe!


  • We allow refunds for our camps up to 2 weeks before the scheduled Boot Camp start date! This allows us to choreograph for a known number of attendees and not disrupt formations/numbers. Otherwise, your ticket is transferable (please reach out for additional info)
  • In the event of a cancellation by SKDC, we will refund your full amount asap.
