Dance To EvOLvE
New Dancer Information
Welcome to Dance To EvOLvE…we’re thrilled to have you a part of our EvOLvE Chicago dancing family! Hopefully you have already noticed, but we love what we do and are excited to share our passion with your dancer. (There will be plenty of smiling and laughing in dance class!) Everything you need to know is below…read on!
Your Choices. Our Knowledge. Their Fun!
EvOLvE believes it’s the dance teacher that makes the difference. Each one is carefully chosen by their experience, passion, professionalism, and bubbliness! Small student ratios, curriculum goals, and ongoing teacher trainings create our progressive and age appropriate dance classes. All this ensures that your dancer is in the best learning environment possible. Our talented Chicago teachers create welcoming dance classes that balance learning with fun so that our dancers are always improving!
Is this your first dance class? What to expect.
Read our Blog: What are appropriate expectations for your first dance class?
Some quick tips:
* Talk about the dance class ahead of time, what is to be expected and the fun to be had! Watch videos ahead of time.
* Meet the teacher ahead of time by seeing their photo and reading their demo. Additionally, introduce yourself to the teacher before class.
Be prepared with dance class etiquette:
Who is your point of contact for Chicago?
What do parents do during class?
Please take your dancer to the bathroom before class.
YOU&me Movement & Music Dance Class: This is a parent/child interactive dance class so parents stay in the room.
Magical Munchkins & Baby Boppers Dance Class: Parents participate as needed and therefore stay in the room. They need your love and encouragement throughout dance class. Some dancers will need more attention and others, depending on their age and development and that’s okay!
Tiny Movers, Beat Breakers, Star Shiners & Older Dance Classes: These are our big kid dance classes so parents watch from a distance outside of the room. Parents are not required to stay during class as long as you have signed-in your dancer on the clipboard.

Is there a dance recital?
In addition to small in-class performances throughout the year, EvOLvE presents an annual dance recital in June that is encouraged (but not required) for age appropriate dance classes. For more information, check out our dance recital page and mark your calendars to ensure your dancer doesn’t miss out!
Do you have feedback?
Questions and feedback (good and bad) are always welcomed, so don’t hesitate to contact Brittany White, EvOLvE Director, directly…about anything! We want your child to have an incredible and long lasting experience with Dance To EvOLvE.
