Welcome to Dance Factory at the Riverbrook Regional YMCA!
Dance Factory has been offering quality Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Combo and Mommy N’ Me classes for over four years. Our program offers classes from 18 months to adults. Dance Factory is run by Miss Eleanor, who has over 40 years experience in bringing dance to children and adults. Our program runs on the academic year of September through June, culminating in our end of the year Recital Spectacular in June. We offer 2 semesters for payment considerations or you may pay for the entire year. You must be a member to join our dance program.
Our classes run from September through June. We are closed the week after Christmas and for Spring Break. We will offer “Mini Camps” during these weeks.
This year we will be forming our new Company Classes. Auditions will be held on Saturday, June 20th. We will have 3 levels of Companies: Mini (ages 5-7), Starlit (ages 8-10) and Junior (ages 11-13). Registration for these classes are by audition only, so plan now to join us in June!!
We will also be forming our first ever Competition Teams. Auditions will also be held on Saturday, June 20th. There are also 3 levels of Competition Team based on age: Mini Comp Team (ages 5-7), Starlit Comp Team (ages 8-10) and Junior Comp Team (ages 11-13). These teams will also require additional expenses such as travel too and from competitions, additional costumes, etc.
Dance Factory Director
Dance Factory was started and run by Eleanor Kanzler. Miss Eleanor started dance at the age of 3. By 16 she was teaching and choreographing for her own classes in three different studios in New York. Miss Eleanor loved dance and continued to teach all through college and law school. Upon receiving her law degree, Miss Eleanor, took time off from teaching but always continued to take class in New York City. After the birth of her second child, Miss Eleanor decided to quit the practice of law and open her own studio in Norwalk, CT. After 8 successful years in Norwalk, Miss Eleanor has now joined with the Riverbrook Regional YMCA to bring her love of dance to her students here in Wilton.
Tuition fees are based on an academic year that runs from September through June.
Payments can be made one of two ways:
1. Pay in September for the full year OR
2. Divide tuition into 2 payments. The first payment is due in September at the beginning of classes. Whatever credit card you designate will be automatically charged for the second payment in February.
All classes are invited to participate in our end of year Recital Spectacular. Costume fees are due in January. Costume fees will range from $60.00 to $75.00.
