Summer Program

Summer 2019 ... Here We Come!

Registration for Summer 2019 opens on February 7th!

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/hip hop
  • lyrical/modern dance
  • tap
  • musical theater
  • 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.
