Broadway FAQ

How long do I have to register for the Broadway Dance Dreams program?

Registration is first come first served.  Certificates are awarded each weekend and the program fills quickly.  Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee a spot on the tour unless you complete the registration and submit the deposit.
The best way to ensure participation is to contact us with questions immediately so you can move toward securing a spot as soon as possible!

When does my Broadway Dance Dreams program begin? I don’t want to miss out on anything!

Your Broadway Dance Dreams program begins on Day 1 at your hotel. Registration will be open at 10am on July 31st. Check-in at the Sheraton Times Square and the Marriott Marquis is at 4pm, however you can drop your luggage at any time and explore New York on your own, but make sure you are back in time for our Welcome Dance Party at 5:15pm.

Can I arrive early or stay longer and experience more of NYC?

There is so much to do and see in New York City that we can’t possibly fit it all into one 5-day program. If you wish to arrive earlier or stay longer we can add the additional nights and activities to your stay. Visit the 9/11 Memorial Museum and One World Observatory, see additional Broadway Shows, or take pictures with your favorite celebs at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum.
Send us an email and let us know what you would like to see and we will make it happen (all subject to availability).

What if I just want to take the classes or experience the excursions of a Dance Dream Program?

What type of rooms are available?

We know how much fun it is to have a roomie so we offer 3 different room options. A double room requires 2 occupants, a Triple Room requires 3 occupants, and a Quad room requires 4 occupants.  Prices for each room type can be found here.
Room upgrades are available at an additional cost. Pricing for suites are furnished upon request.

Do I need a chaperone to participate in the program?

Each participating dancer must have a designated chaperone.  One chaperone can be assigned to more than one participant.  Please contact us for more information on chaperone to participant ratios.

What shows/theatre will I be seeing?

Your Broadway Dance Dreams program will include tickets to the Rockettes New York Spectacular and two additional Broadway shows like  Aladdin, Anastasia, Chicago, and School of Rock.  Please note that shows are subject to availability at time of booking.

Where will the Dance Workshops take place?

The Dance Workshops are held in a professional studio space.  Classes are taught by a celebrity dancer from the hit show So You Think You Can Dance or a top Broadway dancer.

Can chaperones/parents watch me in class?

The space is a professional studio and large crowds can be disruptive to the performers rehearsing.  Limited space is available for chaperones/parents.

What do I wear for my time in NYC?

Remember New York City equals WALKING! So don’t forget your comfy shoes.

Bring an umbrella, for those unexpected New York City summer showers.
