Frequently Asked Questions

Most frequent questions and answers

How do I enroll my child for semester classes?

Second make a payment. We will then process your enrollment based on your form submission.

Is there a discount for parents to take adult classes?

Yes! We offer 20% off Adult Group Classes packages for parents. Call (202) 643-1870 for more details and to get your discount or simply use promo code PARENTSDANCE when you register for adult classes here.

My child will be younger/older than the age range of the class. Can I still enroll my child in the class?

It is best that your child stay in a class that is within their age range. Our programs are strategically designed for specific age ranges. If you feel like your child is more mature than their age, by all means give us a call and we’ll discuss if we could make an exception.

Can I sit in my child's class and observe the class?

For our Petite Ballerinas and baby classes, parents are required to participate in each class. For all other classes, parents are not allowed to physically sit in the class where instruction is given. If a child is distressed and wants their parent in the classroom, we could make an exception the first class.

We cannot make it to class for a date or two. What should I do?

If you are unable to attend classes, please call us at (202) 643-1870 or email us at dance@salsawithsilvia.com to give us notice.

Are there make-up classes?

For Drop In Packages & Half Semester Packages, we do allow a child to attend the SAME class at another date although we strongly encourage consecutive weekly attendance due to the structure of our curriculum.
This option is NOT allowed for those with a Full Semester package, as there are no additional classes beyond the ending date of that particular semester. Each semester enrollment class follows a specific curriculum designed to gradually prepare the students for their final recital.

My child is not doing well in class. What should I do?

We are aware that kids change their habits and their focus. They may not be interested in attending anymore or they simply may not be into dance. To maintain a stable and structured program, we require full and non-refundable commitment to classes. However, we recommend that you first talk to your child’s teacher if your child is not doing well in the class or it’s being distracting to other kids. If the teacher recommends switching to another class, we could accommodate that if spots are available. Call us at (202) 643-1870 or email us at dance@salsawithsilvia.com if you have any questions.

What is the student to teacher ratio?

The student to teacher ratio is 10 to 1. For each class with over 10 students, there is a teacher’s assistant assigned to the class. That is valid for classes with children ages 5 and under. Classes that require the parent to be with the child, do not require an assistant. Classes with kids over 5 years old have a 15 to 1 student/teacher ratio.
