Who Will Attend
From the past few years, thousands of dance enthusiasts participated in events ranging from Latin, ballroom, tap, ballet, swing, hip-hop, pilates, yoga and aerial acrobatics.
An Increasingly Popular Event
Dance Week is produced by FitEngine, Inc. and continues to grow in popularity. It is covered in several local media outlets and receives recognition from former officials such as New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and Borough Presidents Ruben Diaz, Jr. (Bronx), and Scott Stringer (Manhattan).
