    • In June 2019, Dancewave moved from its former location on Dean Street & 4th Avenue in downtown Brooklyn along with the grand opening of its new dance and community center, located at 182 4th Avenue (at Degraw Street), in the heart of the growing Gowanus neighborhood. The 1,400 sq foot Dancewave Center studio is a fully ADA compliant and LEED-gold certified facility, supporting a variety of community needs. Rent our studio for your next gathering, rehearsal, workshop, class, or private lesson.
