Form Your Own Pod

If you'd like to form your own group of dancers 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  

* Please note: we cannot schedule a Pod during regular studio hours until close to the start of the Semester, due to our evolving regular class needs.

Scheduling for our Dance Pods follows our semesters. Click here for our semester dates and holidays.
