Class Types

Downtown Dance Factory offers many different dance styles (see below).  With over 190 classes a week for girls AND boys, from our littlest 18-month olds to our high school seniors, and with options for adults too, there's a class at Downtown Dance Factory for everyone!  

Registration is now closed for Winter/Spring 2019, with the exception of Tiny/TutuTots.

Register for Fall 2019 as follows:

  • Priority registration (for DDF dancers) begins on Tuesday May 21st
  • Open registration (for dancers new to DDF) begins on Monday June 3rd   

To register for a class: 

  • Returning dancers - click here to login and register (or here, to see our schedule). 
    NOTE: For dancers enrolled in the Fall Semester, classes automatically roll over to the Winter/Spring Semester. 
  • Dancers new to DDF - click through below to the genre of your choice and click on the register link next to the class.

Please note: K/1, 2/3, 4/5, 6th+ etc next to class names refer to grades, not ages. If there is no register or waitlist link, it means the waiting list is full or the class is by invitation only.  Adult classes do not require registration - just drop in!


Invitational Classes

In reviewing our schedule, you may see the word “invitational” next to a class.  This means the class is closed for general registration.  While Downtown Dance Factory classes are open to all boys and girls, we do have some classes reserved for dancers who have experience with and aptitude for a specific dance genre. 

The Downtown Dance Factory staff spend a great deal of time with the Invitational selection process.  We want all dancers to dance in the place that is best for them developmentally and that best reflects their level of skill.  We take into account not only the specific dancer, but all the dancers as a whole, to create classes that accommodate each dancer’s needs as well as the needs of the group.  This selection process is carried out towards the end of the Winter/Spring Semester, and invitations are announced before Fall Registration opens in May.  However our staff are always observing, and if they feel a dancer could be better challenged by a different class, we will reach out at any time during the dance year.
