FREE Trial and Demo Classes in Brooklyn

September 6, 2011

We are so lucky to live in Brooklyn where our kids have access to so many cultural activities and unique classes that it can be difficult to decide which school to go to. One way to figure out what school to attend is to check out a trial and sample class where you and your children can see a sample performance, take a class, meet with instructors and go on a tour of a facility. With the fall sessions starting up many dance schools and kids spaces in Brooklyn are holding FREE sample classes. Here are some trial and demo classes that are taking place very soon!
