Welcome to BDC!

Since 1984, Broadway Dance Center has earned a reputation in the global dance community as a beacon of excellence in dance education. Whether you’re a beginner or an established professional, our state-of-the-art studios and online offerings are sure to have the classes you seek.

BDC classes are now offered IN-PERSON, LIVESTREAM, and ON DEMAND!

Dance with us in the studio and online. Choose from either our In-Person or Livestream schedules for live classes, or dance on your own time with a BDC Online subscription. With over 100 classes offered weekly, BDC's class offerings are sure to keep you dancing from anywhere.



  • View our in-person schedule, and sign up on the BDC website or on BDC's app, up to 3 days in advance. Space is limited. No on-site registrations or walk-ins permitted.
    Please make sure to download the Broadway Dance Center APP before your visit, so your student ID barcode is available for check-in. The app conveniently allows you to view your schedule and purchase classes.
  • When does "sign up three days before class" start? Example: Registration for all classes on Monday opens at 12:00 a.m. the Friday prior.
  • You may join the 5-person waitlist. Please make sure you have classes on your BDC Student account.
  • If a spot opens up and you are next on the waitlist, you will be notified via email or text up until 12 hours in advance of the class start time. If it is within the 12 hour window, you will be called, emailed or texted to see if you are still able to join us for class.
  • Remember if an in-person class is full, you can still take the LIVESTREAM class if the class is hybrid!
  • Upon arriving at BDC, please be ready with the following: your student ID barcode on the BDC App so we can check you into your class(es)

If you have canceled your class on the BDC App or on the web browser within in the 12 hours of the class start time, your spot will be forfeited and you will lose the class. If you cancel on the BDC App before the 12-hour window, the class will be credited on your BDC account to be used for a future class.
