Fort Wayne Dance Collective offers year-round onsite classes and workshops at our studios, located at 437 E. Berry St. Fort Wayne, IN 46802.

We are the only non-competitive dance studio in Fort Wayne, focusing on dance as an art form and tool for self expression, rather than strictly entertainment.

We believe everyone can dance– no matter age, body type, or ability.

DRESS CODE

Fort Wayne Dance Collective does not have a dress code for onsite classes.

Students are encouraged to wear clothing that is comfortable to move around in, such as leggings, tights, exercise attire, etc.

Jeans and clothing that is restrictive or excessively baggy are not recommended.

Most students dance barefoot, but do bring your ballet, jazz, or tap shoes for each respective class if you have them!

PARKING

Fort Wayne Dance Collective shares the gravel parking lot across Clay street with Cinema Center. You may park in this lot at any time.

AFTER 5 PM, you may park at the meters for no fee, or use the lot WEST of the building. The only place you SHOULD NOT park after 5 PM is the parking lot directly across Berry St. (south of our entrance.)

SCHOLARSHIPS

We understand that dance can be expensive. Through funding provided by the Wells Fargo Foundation and generous support from donors like YOU, we are able to share the gift of dance, drumming and wellness classes!

Scholarships are given once a year in August, before the Fall session begins. They are given based on financial need, not experience. Families may receive up to two scholarships per family. Classes include dance, drumming and wellness classes. If you or your child do not meet the requirements below, FWDC does offer work/study, payment plans, and other options.
