The Weehawken Dance program runs year-round (28 weeks total of class) split between two semesters that end in performances at the Montrose Pavilion. Sign up for classes run by the semester for Pre & Primary Level classes.

Fall semester classes run Aug 26 - Dec 2, 2024 and will perform in Cast SWEETS, “Nutcracker Sweets” Saturday, December 14. Dress Rehearsal for this cast will be directly before the performance on the same date.

The deadline for all classes is September 7 (if space is available). 

*Please check the dance resources tab for additional information including dates to remember, uniform, policies & performance information.

Age Guide for classes:

PRE ages 2.5-5  (preschool aged children)

PRIMARY ages 4.5-8 (kindergarten-2nd grade)

*Dancers in this level will work on movement fundamentals as well as how to follow directions, work within a group and be a part of a class. 

*Classes in the PRE level will perform ONE time in the winter & ONE time in the spring in our "Sweets" show. Sweets shows are designed to be fun, exciting, safe and appropriate for the skill and attention span of the tiniest Weehawken Dance performers.
