Founded in 2002, Brooklyn Ballet's mission is to create ballets flush with artistic excellence and innovation that delight audience members. With this goal in mind, the not-for-profit professional dance company works with writers, visual artists, and even hackers to design pieces that are reflective of Brooklyn's diverse communities. Before dancers hit the stage, they can get their reps in at the downtown state-of-the-art studio, which features a column-free dance space, wood-sprung floors, and floor-to-ceiling windows. And for those who just want to hone their skills without brining them on stage, the instructors lead recreational classes for adults and kids.

The professional dance instructors at Ballroom, Etc. suspect that when people say, "I just want to dance," they don't necessarily mean that they want to spend the next five years mastering a series of steps. At the relaxed studio, instructors aim to create group classes and private lessons that embody what's really at the heart of dance—fun. Folks can stop by for group classes and learn the waltz, tap, or modern swing while mingling with other like-minded learners. On Friday night, the studio opens its doors to the public for dance parties, where students and shimmy-curious shufflers can amble in for a night of high-stepping.
