Summer Program

Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, we have revamped our summer program!
We are really excited about our VirtualDDF options for Summer 2020, which you can find here.

Registration for Summer 2020 is OPEN! And now we're offering 8 weeks!

Downtown Dance Factory - featured in Time out New York Kids Camp Edition "Summer Picks" for 5 years straight - is once again gearing up for its weekly program which runs throughout July and early August.  Each week-long session will offer your preschool or school-aged child a wide range of dance and performing arts-related options, including sessions in:

  • jazz
  • lyrical/modern dance
  • tap
  • musical theater
  • hip hop & breaking
  • arts & crafts
  • choreography
  • Improvisation


Each week, our full-day students will have the opportunity to experience classes in all the above dance genres – some daily, some several times per week – no prior experience necessary! On Friday afternoon of each week, students can even look forward to sharing all they've learned with their grown-ups during our weekly showcase – just prior to Friday pick-up.  Full-day program runs 9am-3pm.

Our half-day students will enjoy a selection of our acclaimed preschool dance classes – hip hop, modern dance, tap – together with dance-related crafts, story-telling and dress-ups! Add a smattering of singing, drama and a taste of other dance styles (think breakdance, creative movement … even Bollywood!) and they’re in for a fun-filled week for sure! Half-day program runs 9am-12pm.

Half-day participants must bring a snack; full day participants must bring a snack and lunch (with ice pack). DDF does not have refrigeration.
