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  

Dance pods follow our Fall 2020 Mini-Semesters.  

  • Mini-Semester 2 runs November 30th through January 30th for 7 weeks.
  • Pod tuition is pro-rated if pods start mid-session
