At The Dance Gallery, our mission is to offer quality dance instruction by experienced professionals who possess a passion for teaching students of all ages in a disciplined and nurturing environment.
The Dance Gallery teaches dance as an art form, emphasizing fundamental technique and diversity of styles, including classical ballet, jazz, tap, modern, musical theater and hip-hop.
We offer small class sizes that allow for personalized attention and greater focus. Our students do not get lost in the shuffle and are encouraged to learn both individual technique and how to work together as part of an ensemble.
We believe that proper dance instruction and the opportunity to perform builds confidence, creative expression and physical development, all of which will benefit our students for a lifetime.
Director of Communications
The Dance Gallery is located in the Village of Tuckahoe, New York, in the Town of Eastchester, steps away from the Tuckahoe Metro-North train station and the shops on Depot Square.
Our studio is in the Main Street Depot, a restored former substation built in 1908 to accommodate newly electrified rail service from Grand Central Station in New York City to Westchester County on the Harlem Line. The substation once housed the rotary converters that were used to convert alternating current to direct current for third-rail power to trains.
This historic brick building has been our home since we opened our doors in 2012 and established a new dance community for the neighboring areas within and around Eastchester and northeast Yonkers.
The Dance Gallery runs its regular classes from September to June. While we generally follow the official school calendar of the Eastchester Board of Education, there may be some variations to this due to scheduling issues. Students will be reminded in advance if a scheduled class will not be held.
