Daily NYC Dance Classes

If you are a hungry dancer, be sure to check out these studios in NYC as they usually have daily classes. The styles and difficulty levels vary, but be sure to look at their descriptions.

I decided to create this page because as a beginner I found it challenging to find studios, especially if you don’t know anyone in the community quite yet.

Contact me if you have any questions or if you know of another studio in the area.

Here is a list of studios in alphabetical order:


The Ailey Extension

118001918-primary

  • Location: 405 W. 55th St. New York, NY
  • Cost: $20 for a single drop-in class, $87.50 for a 5 class card ($17.50 per class, 2 month expiration), $170 for 10 class card ($17 per class, 3 month expiration), or $320 for 20 class card ($16 per class, 4 month expiration). First time students get a 2 classes for $32.
  • Notes: The classes here are alright and a bit pricey. I wasn’t really amazed with the beginner hip-hop class, but then again I only took one class here so take my experience with a grain of salt. This studio is more industry level than it is community. Lastly, there are a lot of regularly scheduled classes to take.

Broadway Dance Center (BDC)

  • Location: 322 West 45th Street, 3rd Floor, NYC, New York
  • Cost: $20 for a single drop-in class, $85 for a 5 class card ($17 per class, 2 week expiration), $170 for 10 class card ($17 per class, 1 month expiration ), or $340 for 20 class card ($17 per class, 3 month expiration).
  • Notes: I find BDC classes harder than a normal class and a bit pricey but overall good quality instruction. Definitely more of a competitive/industry level atmosphere. Lastly, there are a lot of regularly scheduled classes to take.

  • Location: 27 2nd ave 1st Floor, New York, NY 10003
  • Cost: $20 for a single drop-in class, $90 for a 5 class card ($18 per class), $160 for 10 class card ($16 per class), or $120 for 8 classes a month ($15 per class).
  • Notes: This studio focuses more on foundations (house, breaking, etc) but it is also more on the pricey side. However, I highly recommend this studio if you want to learn foundations rather than pure choreography. Lastly, there are a lot of regularly scheduled classes to take.

  • Notes: This studio focuses more on hip hop choreography (occasional foundation classes) and classes are affordable. I have been taking classes here for 2+ years and I’m currently an intern here so I’m a bit biased.
