Fall 2020 Semester Program Curriculum

Held exclusively at the West 65th Street Studios, our 16-week Semester Program is offered in the Fall and Spring. If you’re looking for a program to ignite your dancer’s passion, then the Semester class option will be a perfect choice.

COVID-19 UPDATE:

BDC Children & Teens Semester Program will now be offered in two options: In-Person and Virtual.

In-Person Option: In-person classes will run at a limited capacity at no more than 8-10 dancers per studio. If a class exceeds 10 dancers, the class will be divided into two groups where each group is set on a bi-weekly schedule, alternating in-person and virtual. In-person dancers are free to opt into virtual-only classes at any point in the season as your safety is our top priority.  

Virtual Option: Cameras will be set up in each studio for a virtual-only option. Virtual dancers may be able to opt to in-person at varying points in the season depending on current class capacity.

Broadway Dance Center will be following all safety protocols and guidelines given by the CDC. Specific protocols and guidelines will be emailed to enrolled families. Please email us at w65info@bwydance.com for questions or help to find the best option for you. Our priority is the health and safety of our dancers, their families, and our staff!
