The Evolution Of Dance: Best Dance Programs

To showcase not only the range of special dance class venues in NYC, but also to paint a portrait of how the art form evolves as students grow up, we asked seven young dancers—ranging in age from 3.5 to 17, pictured here from youngest to oldest (click through the slideshow below; all photos by Karen Haberberg Photography)—to tell us why they dance and what they love about the sport.

Younger dancers told us why they started and shared their hopes for the future, while older dancers explained why they’ve stuck with it.
