Jay Offutt , owner and instructor of the Dance Experience has been providing the Seattle Dance Community with dance classes and individual instruction for over 40 years.

The studio overlooks the rink at the Highland Ice Arena in Shoreline, has nearly 5,000 square feet of space, two social areas, free parking, and is one of the largest dance studios in the greater Seattle area.

You will never be asked to sign a contract or pay a membership fee. You pay as you go and are free to start and stop at any time.

Our dance courses build upon the previous week’s dance curriculum and then gradually add new material.

Our staff are energetic and excited about dancing. They are available to answer questions and assist you with becoming a successful and confident dancer.
