If you have a budding ballerina who's pleading for dance classes in New York City, you'll find yourself spoiled for choice, and that fact holds true across genres and genders. We've rounded up 18 studios offering dance classes in NYC for kids. Most of these local dance classes in NYC offer programs for boys, and in general, you can study multiple styles at one studio; only a few specialize in one discipline.
