American Dance Institute opens second location in former Roseanne’s School of Dance building


A sponsored post from our friends at American Dance Institute

Leading Seattle dance school American Dance Institute (ADI) has expanded to include a Magnolia location. This new, second location joins the Greenwood location, where the American Dance Institute has been operating for more than 30 years, and includes ADI?s signature parent observation area, chemical-free studios, and accommodating class schedules. Since schools in the surrounding areas have different bell times, ADI has customized its class schedule to give parents sufficient time to travel between the various schools and the studio.

?We were touched when Roseanne Casper, who had just retired after operating Roseanne?s School of Dance for more than 40 years, told us about available studio space in Magnolia,? said owner and founder Elizabeth Chayer. ?Between preparing class schedules, hiring and training instructors, and remodeling the studio, there were a lot of 14-hour days so we could open in time for the new school year. This is such a great neighborhood and we are grateful for the opportunity to open a location here.?

The Magnolia location was remodeled to expand the amount of studio space as well as add a state of the art sound system, fresh paint, a new exterior building sign, and a parent observation room with free Wi-Fi. The observation room offers parents the space to stay and watch their child, work, or visit with other parents in a welcoming environment.

?As a family friendly school, we are serious about dance instruction but we definitely don?t take ourselves too seriously. We like to say there is no snootiness allowed. In fact, we work hard to make sure students have a great teacher and a great class every single time,? explained Chayer.


The new sunlit studio now hosts classes for adults, teenagers, and children, which begin with a free trial class and an exclusive 100% money-back guarantee. The professional dance instruction is in a non-threatening, non-competitive environment, which balances technical training with each student?s creativity. Students can explore Ballet, Hip Hop, Modern/Contemporary, Jazz, Tap, Flamenco, and Irish Dance as well as a free 9-week ?Mommy/Daddy & Me? toddler class.
