Summer Classes Are On

Summer classes are underway. Please check the Class Schedule page to see the list and times of the summer session, now through July 28.

Princess Dance Camp

Come share in the fun and excitement at PADC's Summer Princess Dance Camp July 24-27! Children will explore different styles of dance like ballet, tap and jazz while also participating in a variety of activities such as gymnastics, arts and crafts and make-up. Camp runs Monday through Thursday from 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM, and the cost is $85.00. Open to children 5-8 years old. All campers need to bring a water bottle and a packed lunch. At the end of camp on Thursday, there will be a class presentation for the parents at 12:45. Sign-up at the studio today! Space is limited.


Congratulations to all of our dancers who participated in the annual recital! We are so proud of every one of our dancers and all they accomplished throughout the year.

Directions To The Studio

Our studio is located at 111 Valleyside Drive in Delaware. Valleyside Drive is conveniently located just off West William Street (Rt. 36) across from Carson Farms Blvd. You will see the Richwood Bank on the corner. As you go down Valleyside Drive, WillowBrook Christian Communities will be on your right. The studio is the last building on the left. You will turn into the front side of the building, which is the studio side. There is plenty of parking in the dedicated parking lot, and the location is great for easy pick-up and drop off.

Missed Classes

Just a reminder, there is no credit given for missed classes. If a student misses class because they are ill, has a school/family obligation, or if the weather is bad, the studio offers a make-up class. Make-up classes are the student’s responsibility and are strongly encouraged. Students have four weeks to make up the class that they missed. Check with your child’s teacher to see which class would be appropriate to join for a make up.

Student Referrals

Spread the word that PADC offers a fabulous referral program. To thank you for the many referrals we receive, Performing Arts Dance Centre would like to reward those clients who pass along our good name to their friends and neighbors. Any current student who refers someone new to our studio for classes will receive one referral credit for each referral. Referral credits can be used for $10 off monthly tuition or $10 off a recital costume. To be eligible, the new student must have written your name down on the referral line of our registration/medical card and sign up for at least one month of classes. Previous students do not count toward referrals. Referral credits do not expire and can be redeemed at any time.

Fall Registration

Fall registration will be opening this month. Please check back here and at the front desk for the Fall Class Schedule.

Competition Teams

PADC offers a number of competition teams for dancers. If you think your dancer may be interested in competing, please check with the front desk to learn more.

Lost -n-Found

Please label all dance shoes and bags with student's name. The studio does have a lost and found bin in the waiting room. It fills up pretty quick with sippy cups, water bottles, shirts, pants, gloves, hats and, of course, DANCE SHOES! To help reduce the number of lost shoes, make sure you write the student's name on the inside of each shoe! Any items not claimed by recital time each June will be disposed of or donated.

Shoe Donations

Wondering what to do with outgrown dance shoes? Donate them to the studio! We keep a variety of sizes and styles in our “Spare Pair” shoe stock. These donated shoes are used for when children forget their shoes, a new student is trying a class out, or if they ordered new shoes but they just haven‘t arrived yet. The studio is in need of several larger sizes of tap, ballet and jazz shoes. If interested in donating shoes, check with the office as to what size we still need.


To make things easier for our parents, the studio offers an autopay option for tuition and costumes. This is a free service, and you can have it drafted from any VISA, Mastercard or check card. This is a stress free alternative so you don't have to worry about remembering to make the payment and also guarantees you will never receive a late fee. Please check with the office if you are interested.
