Your students health, safety, and well being are of the utmost importance to us!  As such we are following the government guidelines closely for reopening with your students well-being in mind.  In the Fall we will be offering multiple class options for families in the Fall including live online ZOOM classes, in-person classes (class sizes will be limited during Phase 2 and Phase 3 ), and private lessons.  

Please do not hesitate to reach out to us if you have any questions. 


For the month of August we are offering a short Summer Session with classes capped at no more than 5-students.   Social distancing, face-masks, and temperature checks will be in effect for all participants.  If your child is unable to wear a face mask for medical reasons, they may still take a private lesson but will not be able to attend the semi-private lessons at this time.

About Us

Surrendered School of Dance was founded in 2009 as the dance school of Paradosi Ballet Company.  As a dance school, we strive to develop excellent dancers in a nurturing and loving environment.  While our studio is non-competitive in nature, we work to challenge each student to reach their fullest potential, not only as dancers, but to grow in their faith as well.

As a faith based organization, Surrendered School of Dance is different in that we go against the norm of the dance world by utilizing family friendly music, promoting modesty, self-worth, and inclusivity in a non-competitive yet professional atmosphere.  

While the school is a faith based organization, it is open to all in the community regardless of their beliefs.  Please keep in mind; however, that as a faith based organization we often utilize Christian music in the classroom and teachers may take the first few minutes of class to pray with the students. 

Our History

Surrendered School of Dance, formerly called Surrendered School of the Arts, was founded in 2009 as the dance school of Paradosi Ballet Company. Throughout the years we have loved pouring into the lives of students and families in the communities in which we live and serve.  We have taught thousands of students through our main Tacoma campus, multiple satellite campuses, and after school enrichment programs. 

We have been so honored to have played a part in the development of each student that has walked through our doors and we look forward to sharing the gift of dance with many more for generations to follow!

"Start children off on the way they should go, 

and even when they are old they will not turn from it."
