I love 9th Street Dance! I'm 48 years old and have taken tap and hip hop here and am now taking ballet. The teachers are fabulous, and so is the staff, and we have so much fun in class! We learn a lot, and it's a great workout! There are also lots of classes for kids. Very happy place!!

Ninth Street Dance is great for anyone who is looking to get back into dance, try a new style, or even start dancing for the first time. The teachers create a very welcoming atmosphere where students feel comfortable learning. As a person who works full time, their schedule is extremely convenient and they have a variety of classes. Also, if you ever have to miss a class, you can make it up in any other style which is a great chance to try something new. Their studios are also air conditioned which is nice, especially in the summer. There are dancers of all ages and experience levels which creates a vibrant community.

Great experience for two of our young children. The dance classes for youngsters are low-pressure, and more concerned with getting the kids to have fun moving their bodies than prepare them for recitals.

Great workout, nice people, fun dancing. Only problem is the area. Not safe.

I had a great experience here with ShaLeigh Fairbanks, a superb, professional and caring teacher. The front desk person was exceptional. The only beef I have is that the studio is up a steep flight of stairs and can be a little touch to navigate for someone who has had knee issues. The studios are in a lively area near the 9th street "strip".

Ninth Street Dance is not only a neighborhood gem and huge community asset but it's also a national treasure. I've moved throughout several different states/major cities all with "strong" dance communities and none of them have what Ninth Street does. Every time I come home to NC, dropping into a class is like medicine for my soul. I talk about it constantly to other adult dancers/movers who lament not having a venue for non-professional, fun, relaxed (but still challenging!) dance classes for all ages and bodies.
