After-School Program

This year marks SunDance’s ninth year as an After-School Dance Program! We have over 100 students in grades K-8, a mini-performance group known as CREW, a preschool class, and an adult group.  

There are two regular after-school dance sessions a year, each that end with a performance (Christmas and Spring) at Highline Performing Arts Center (401 S 152nd St., Burien, WA  98148).

This year we will be hiring a professional photographer(s) to shoot both dress rehearsal and the show.  All photos will be made available to the entire dance program.  We ask that parents refrain from taking photographs.  Photography is allowed in these circumstances: (1) Your child is in the photo  (2) Someone has asked you to take a photo of their child (3) It is dress rehearsal.

NO PHOTOGRAPHY is allowed in the theater the night of the show.  Our hired photographer will have a special badge that allows him/her movement throughout the theater and backstage.


Registration will open for Fall/Winter 2018 on Friday, Aug. 24th at 9am
