  • Studio Reservation Guidelines

    1. All users must be engaged in approved Dance Program activities.
    2. Each user may reserve a studio for a maximum of 2 hours at a time, no more than twice a week. (exceptions: faculty and dance grads) 
      1. If you find you need more time, please contact Kelly at 543-9843 or kcanaday@u.washington.edu.
    3. There is an order of priority for studio use - those lower on the priority list may be bumped if needed.
