Click here to learn about our safety protocols for In-Studio classes.

How Classes are working at Downtown Dance Factory:

  • All classes are taught live from the DDF studios by our DDF teachers.
  • Some of these classes are open for limited In-Studio enrollment; others are offered exclusively via Zoom.
  • The classes open for In-Studio enrollment are also accessible via Zoom. There is a different pricing structure for enrollment in In-Studio vs Zoom classes. Click here for fees. Please note: you will be committed to payment for the duration of the semester in which you are enrolled for the class option (In-Studio or Zoom) in which you enroll.
  • Dancers who are enrolled in In-Studio classes should be prepared to transition to Zoom or a hybrid model at any point during the semester, should regulations dictate. The Zoom class schedule would be identical to the In-Studio schedule, and there would be no tuition adjustments, credits or refunds.
