looking for dance school
Posted August 20th, 2012 - 10:19 am by from Hesperange, Luxembourg (Permalink)
Dear dancers

I am moving to New York on September 17Th and I am looking for a good dance school.
Actually I only started dancing 2 years ago, so I need a school with classes for beginners, where I can join in.. (ballet and hip hop)
Do you know a school (or/ and a teacher), that you would recommend?
Or which school should I avoid?
Do you have some experience at the Broadway Dance Center?

Thanks a lot

hello Susi!
the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater is my favorite. I spent 4 years there in the school and work at the front desk for Ailey Extension (classes for all)
They have ballet with Kat Wildish and hiphop with Tweetie for begginers.
both teachers are amazingly efficient
introductory offer: 2 classes for $25
then 10 classes for $150
no membership fee
I also tried Peridance (they have everything), Steps on Broadway (they also have everything, some good ballet and jazz) and Broadway Dance Center (the best for all hiphop styles but more expensive and not always nice staff :/
