Studio Rentals


In response to the progress of COVID-19 in New York City, Dancewave is committed to keeping our spaces healthy and safe for our constituents. Our staff is closely following the Center for Disease Control and New York City Department of Health mandates for up-to-date health standards, as well as Department of Cultural Affairs’ recommendations for non-profit arts organizations. Please click here to read our full recommendation for preventative measures while at the Dancewave Center.

As of now, Dancewave youth/adult classes and studio rentals, as well as performances and upcoming gala will remain in place as planned. We will be making informed decisions about whether to continue our events in the coming weeks as more information about the Coronavirus unfolds. We will continue to update our community via email and our website. Please email with any questions. Thank you and be well!

Dancewave has a new location at 182 4th Ave (at Degraw Street)! Rent our studios for your next rehearsal, workshop, reading, class, or private lesson. Birthday Party rentals are also available!
