Before registering, please read our Guide To Classes By Age Range
*Please note, age rage for classes are just a starting point to determining the right class for your dancer. Our teachers make class placement decisions freely and often move students based on their skill and maturity level. The age guidelines we use are based on the American Ballet Theatre National Training Curriculum age and level guidelines. We use these same age guidelines for all of our classes to streamline class titles and make it easy to determine which classes may fit your child the best. Please notice some classes may have prerequisites.

*Classes listed A are the more beginning portion of a class level. B is the more advanced portion of a class level. Example: Primary A and Primary B

*Some classes may be a mixed level. For example 1/2 would mean that the class is a mixed level class, students may be either level 1 or level 2.

Weehawken Dance Calendars

Who is required to take summer dance classes?


Pointe students are required to participate in summer dance classes. Students starting Pointe classes in the 2022/2023 calendar year are required to participate in summer dance classes. We require a minimum of 6 days, at least one hour per day, of ballet for any dancers on pointe or going on pointe.

PLEASE NOTE- We do not allow drop-ins for classes, students must register for the full 4 week session. Make-up classes will be allowed. It is dancer's responsibility to make sure they have scheduled enough dance classes/hours to continue on pointe. All Dance Intensives meet the necessary pre-requisite for summer dance.

Contact: Please contact Natasha if you have any questions about placement, levels, schedule, etc. Some classes may be split or combined as the teacher deems appropriate. Classes also may be cancelled if they do not meet the minimum enrollments.

  • Students who dance in the summer audition better and dance better in the fall dance semester. If you're really hoping for lead roles, year round participation is very important for your growth as a dancer.
  • ALL Dance Students are encouraged to participate in summer dance classes.
  • Our summer schedule is simple, Mon-Thurs., as it still allows everyone plenty of family time and is very affordable.
  • Dress Code: Uniforms are NOT required in the summer session, but dance clothes are. Please follow our dress code guidelines at it applies to classes you plan to attend.
