ABOUT US

L'échappé et L'arrivée

The motto at Premiere Dance Center - L'échappé et L'arrivée - means "escaped and arrived". This studio was created as a destination, as well as a sanctuary, for aspiring dancers from throughout the Puget Sound region. At Premiere Dance Center, students and parents are encouraged to leave everyday problems, issues, and concerns behind them as they pass through our doors. Our goal is to have a completely stress-free environment filled with an atmosphere of respect, encouragement and motivation. In order to do this, we have a very simple "Code of Conduct".

My daughter, Greta S. would like to continue with dance this coming year, thanks to this wonderful program that focuses on the smallest dancers.  Greta had a wonderful experience over the past year and the recital was no exception.  After coming from another studio a year ago that didn't prioritize growing their youngest dancers, your program has been a bright light in the midst of the pandemic!

I love Premiere so much! I have evolved so much as a person & dancer! My teachers just started as people who taught me dance but now I'm so close with them that now they are mentors and I have so much respect for them. Premiere offers so many different styles of dance which is so great to be immersed into multiple styles as a growing dancer!!!

This place is truly a home to me. I’ve never seen a studio value community and family more than PDC. They put the dancers first always and listen to what students truly need. Friendships last a lifetime at Premiere. Once you become part of the PDC family, you are bonded for life.
