For registration information, click on the "Register for Classes" photo to the right and download the registration forms. Registration is year-round at Academy of Dance Arts San Diego, although certain performances and competitions do have deadlines. Parents can register by mail, phone or in person at the studio. We love welcoming new families and giving them a free introductory classes so your child can experience the ADA difference.



A parent must accompany their child for an introductory lesson. Your child is encouraged to wear loose-fitting comfortable clothes for intro lessons. Enrolled students must wear correct dance attire. Please download the studio dress code. Younger students are not permitted to leave the studio at the end of class. Parents must come into the studio to pick up their child. It is recommended that parents watch only the last 10 minutes of class, as parents talking in the office during class can be distracting to the students.

Students must be enrolled in class by December to be guaranteed the opportunity of performing in the spring shows. Students must be enrolled in class by February to be guaranteed the opportunity of performing in the summer recital. Students must be enrolled in privates (solos, duos, trios) by September to be guaranteed the opportunity of performing their solo, duo, or trio in shows, competitions and the recital. This allows sufficient time for the instructors and students to select their music, fully choreograph routines and practice them to perfection!
