Form Your Own Pod

If you'd like to form your own group of dancers for In-Person or Virtual classes at Downtown Dance Factory, you can create your own dance Pod!

A Downtown Dance Factory Pod is: 

  • Created by you
  • Restricted to your selected group of dancers
  • At your desired day and time (subject to teacher and studio availability)
  • In your requested dance style  

Scheduling for our Dance Pods follows our semesters:  

  • Mini-Semester 2 runs November 30th through January 30th.
  • Winter/Spring runs February 1st through June 13th.
  • Pod tuition is pro-rated if pods start mid-session.

Pod Policies

  • Minimum of 3 dancers in a pod. 
  • Dancers new to Downtown Dance Factory will be charged our one-time $25 registration fee. 
  • All dancers must wear masks while on Downtown Dance Factory premises. COVID-19 procedures & protocols, as listed here, MUST be followed. Drop-off and pick-up protocols are also listed, though procedures vary by age and time of day.
  • Once a Pod is confirmed, there are no cancellations, refunds nor price adjustments for changes to the number of participants.
  • A $100 deposit per dancer is charged upon Pod formation. Payment for the balance of the Pod is charged on the first day of the Pod's semester (payment is pro-rated if the semester has begun)
  • Pods are a non recital-based program. We will hold "Zoom-In" Demonstration sessions at the end of the semester.
  • Pod classes may be taken virtually if dancers cannot come to the studio. At least one hour's notice is required to set up Zoom details and login. Also, Pod participants are entitled to up to two (2) make-up classes in any of our age approrpriate virtual Downtown Dance Factory classes if they must miss Pod classes.
  • Should regulations dictate that In-Studio classes transition to VirtualDDF classes or a hybrid model at any point, or should you decide to transition from In-Studio to VirtualDDF, there will be no tuition adjustments, discounts, credits or refunds.
  • Uniforms are required, with proper shoes based on dance style. Pod participants are free to choose the leotard color!
