Dance Gap Year now offers dancers, choreographers and educators ages 18+
the opportunity to experience the breadth of the global dance community virtually.

In light of COVID-19, we can still travel by way of learning from people all over the world. At DGY, our instructors are already based worldwide — You may learn experimental contemporary from Berlin, hip hop from New York, ballet from Europe, popping from Los Angeles & yoga from Tanzania...all from your home!

Once we are able to travel, our programs will resume in New York City, Los Angeles + Abroad, however we will continue to offer our 3-8 month gap year program virtually as well. Join us to enhance your dance-artistry, performance & technique; develop your skills as an empowered dancer & entrepreneur, experience cross-cultural exchange & build community across the world.





DGY provides participants with a well-rounded, versatile and high-caliber dance education that offers an inspired global perspective and international network of dancers, creatives and entrepreneurs to support participants as they transition into the professional field.

"Overall, I had an incredible experience with the program.
I learned so much about how I saw myself fitting into the dance world moving forward, which is something that this program curates really well."

- Daria, Dance Gap Year NYC Alumni
