I just moved to Jersey City Heights and wanted to know if anyone out there knows of a good studio in Jersey City/Newark/Hoboken/ area. I'm 25 years old and at a fairly advanced level (was considering turning pro. at one time). Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

It is path train and a subway ride but Steps on Broadway in New York.

There are a lot of dance schools in the area, the challenge is finding classes for adults that are an advanced level. I am mostly familiar with schools in the Bergen County area.

 

If you are near the PATH, going to NYC might be the best option. More serious schools to choose from, more adult students, and more advanced classes available.

 

If you want to drive to a NJ studio, I would recommend the following:

I have heard good things about the morning adult classes in Bergenfield, but I haven't been able to attend. The evening adult class is good, but not a lot of corrections. You might fit in with the teen classes, which are more advanced.

The Center for Modern Dance in Hackensack has an adult modern class with a pretty large following. The Saturday class is mixed levels, and the Tuesday class is advanced. There are mixed level classes in ballet and other dance styles.

 

A new school recently opened up in Teaneck, on Cedar Lane. I don't have their info yet.

I know you want NJ studios, but just wanted to plug the idea of Steps on Broadway in NYC again. I'm an advanced returning student in my 20s. There's lots of people in the same situation there and the place feels just as much "home" to me as the smaller studios I attended growing up. Lots of regulars in the classes. I've never felt ignored by the teachers. Gotten more individual training and guidance than I ever did as a teen, actually. And this time it's by teachers who really REALLY know thier stuff. Plus I've made lots of friends there. It's hard to make friends in New York(especially if you're shy like me), and I'm so happy to have a group of people to call and hang out with now.

 

The place has a reputation for being impersonal and chaotic. If you stick it out for a bit and find your groove, it's a wonderful place to dance with some very talented teachers (and dancers). Famous dancers regularly take thier class there, so it's some fun people-watching as well.
