Who's the Man?

So, you’re thinking about enrolling your son in dance classes? Every time you turn up the music, he is ready to bop to the beat!

Demo Classes at Downtown Dance Factory Happening Now!

Towards the end of every semester, Downtown Dance Factory, NYC’s hippest dance studio for kids and adults, holds what they call “demo classes” for the current semester’s boys and girls in ballet, hip-hop, jazz, tap, and lyrical dance, to strut their stuff for their mommies, daddies and loved-ones. Demo classes are held during the regular time slot for each class over a period of three weeks. It’s a wonderful opportunity for both parents and kids. The kids get to unload any performance anxiety in advance of the big recital in June, and parents get to see what a class at Downtown Dance Factory is all about!

All this space can only mean one thing (OK, two more things) — lots more kids, and lots more dance classes, just in time for our 2nd semester! Looks like two is our lucky number!
