Downtown Dance Factory Announcements

VirtualDDF is Here!

Sun, Mar 22 2020

Downtown Dance Factory is pleased to announce the launch of our online livestreamed dance program - VirtualDDF. We're so excited that it will be happening as of Monday, March 23rd with a program of over 80 classes a week to cater to all our dancers, taught by a cast of DDF's favorite teachers!

Enrolled dancers can take as many classes as you want, whether it's your regular class multiple times a week, a different genre of dance, or both! This porgram will run on Zoom's platform, which you can download here (for your computer) or you can download the mobile app "Zoom Cloud Meetings" for your device.  

The VirtualDDF schedule is attached here.  All dancers enrolled in the Winter/Spring Semester received an email on March 22nd with the Zoom Meeting ID codes and instructions regarding how to join a class. If you did not receive this email, please contact us and we will resend it. You will need the class Zoom IDs to join. 

We're so excited to being seeing our dancers again. Happy dancing!

Downtown Dance Factory is Closed Temporarily

Fri, Mar 13 2020
Based on the ongoing spread of COVID-19 in New York City, and on the advice of public officials who are strongly encouraging social-distancing, Downtown Dance Factory will temporarily close from March 13th through March 28th. We are doing so to support efforts to contain the spread of the virus, and also to ensure the health, sense of safety and well-being of our Downtown Dance Factory community. These closure dates are effective immediately, Friday, March 13th. As this is an evolving situation, we will continue to be in touch, and will update you should things change.
In lieu of the two weeks of classes that will be missed due to this necessary closure, the following is planned:
  • classes will run over the initially planned spring break from April 13th-17th.
  • the Winter/Spring semester will be extended by one week, and will therefore end on June 20th.
While this is a change to previously published dates, we are dealing with an unprecedented situation. Together as a compassionate community, we can help and support eachother, as we try to navigate this as best we can. We are so sad that the situation has come to this, but based on the many conversations, phone calls and emails we've had with so many of you over the last few days, we know that it is the responsible and necessary thing to do for families in these uncertain circumstances. Our main concern is the well-being of our DDF community.
Providing it is advisable to reopen based on information from the CDC and the NYS Health Department, we look forward to dancing with you again as of Monday March 30th. Please stay safe and thank you for your understanding and support of our small business in these difficult times. We, as New Yorkers, have overcome major crises in the recent past, and we know that we as a community can come together and get through this one too. We are all hoping for the same thing - to get back to our normal lives, and to our normal dance schedules, as soon as possible.
Wishing everyone all the best,
Downtown Dance Factory
