Q & A For Parties At Your Location
Please note these are Q&A for dance party bookings at your location. Any event or party booked at the Pilsen studio has a separate booking agreement that will be emailed to you.
1) How do you pay to confirm your party?
Pilsen Studio Party: Payment taken with credit card.
Party At Your Location Payment options:

Please note: Parties are not confirmed on teacher's schedule until payment is received.
2) Does Dance To EvOLvE provide a venue?
Dance to EvOLvE does not provide a location for your party, unless you book the Pilsen studio location, and a separate venue is not included in the kid’s dance party price. We come to you wherever you are having the party; We can make almost any space work. We do ask that families clear out an area for the dance party, if possible, making sure that toys and other distractions are put away.
3) Can the kid’s dance party be indoors or outdoors?
EvOLvE can accommodate for the dance party to be indoors or outdoors depending on the venue and what works best for you and your party guests. The teacher would need to know ahead of time so that electricity for the stereo can be planned for.
4) How many kids are allowed to participate in the dance party?
This depends on the age of the participants. For younger than 4 years, 15-20 party guests is average. For older than 4 years, 25-30 guests per teacher is doable. For larger parties, the teacher often needs some support from parents. (An extra charge of $30 for a second teacher.)
6)What should I expect during the dance party?
Kid’s dance parties have so many fun things going on. Amidst all the cake, people and food, there are a lot of distractions for the children. It is normal that not all the kids will participate in the dance party. We are here to provide a fun dance party for your guests and that may mean your child will want to participate in some activities but not others. The teachers will balance structure with fun to accommodate the party atmosphere. See party layout.
7) What does Dance to EvOLvE provide?
- A trained professional EvOLvE teacher
- Age-appropriate music (catered to the theme)
- Stereo (please let office know if electricity will not be available)
- Props (this depends on the party theme)
- Fun stickers for everyone
- Flyers to include an invitation for all party guests to take a no obligation trial dance class during EvOLvE’s regular classes
- Tips not mandatory but appreciated.
8) Does the teacher come dressed in the theme?
Teachers typically wear the EvOLvE t-shirt for the dance party.
