What is your Walk-In Policy?
When a class fills up, we will turn people away at the door. It's not uncommon for us to accommodate walk-ins, and we are always happy to see you no matter how you come; but please be aware that by not signing up in advance, you run the risk of being denied admission due to capacity. The easiest way to prevent this is to download the MindBody app and pre-register for classes. (This makes the check-in process faster too!)
What types of classes do you offer?
Hip Hop, Contemporary, Heels, Jazz, Jazz Funk, Musical Theater, Commercial Choreography, and more.
How difficult are the classes?
Being a pre-professional and professional dance studio, most of our classes are geared towards the intermediate/advanced dancer.
I’m new to dance, where should I start?
If you are new to dance or at the beginner/intermediate level, we recommend you start with Hip Hop Fundamentals, Musical Theater, and Jazz.
How do I pay for class?
We have several payment options to fit the different schedules of each dancer. You may pay one class at a time, buy a class card, or purchase a membership.
Can I take any class I want?
Absolutely. Mix and match, come and go as you please!
How old do I have to be to take dance at Empire?
We welcome dancers of all ages.
Where do I park?

Where are you located exactly?

What is your No-Show Policy?
Reserving a class but not attending and not cancelling your reservation is considered a "no-show" and will result in the forfeiture of the class fee paid.
