Where are classes held?
All of our classes are held at Pearl Studios, which has two locations: 500 8th Ave and 519 8th Ave, which located across from each other on 8th Ave between 35th and 36th St. Since they have multiple studio locations, our room assignment can change week to week.

Nearby public transportation includes the 1, 2, 3, A, C, E (34th St) by subway, Penn Station, and Port Authority.

Once you make an online purchase, simply show us your emailed receipt when you come take class.

What class options are available for purchase?
We are proud to offer a number of class packages that meet your availability and training needs. Our class options include a single class (expires after 30 days), 5 class card (expires after 60 days), 10 class card (expires after 90 days) and a 30-day unlimited card. All class package expirations are calculated from date of purchase.
What should I wear and bring to class?
Our hip hop and street style classes are sure to give you are workout in during the hour class, so we recommend wearing fitness apparel such as sneakers, sweatpants, and t-shirts. You should also bring water to class and stay hydrated. Pearl Studios has dressing rooms if you're coming from work or school, and need to change into dance clothes.
Are there any age restrictions for taking classes?
House of Movement's classes are open to all ages and skill levels. Currently, our youngest student was a 9 year old girl who enjoyed taking our beginner hip hop class. Parents are encouraged to accompany their children to the studio, where they can either watch class from the side or take class as well and make it a family fitness activity!
What can I expect during my 90-min long class?
Typically our classes start with a warm-up and stretch that lasts for up to 30 minutes. This is aimed to get your blood pumping and body conditioned for dance. For the remainder of class, you will learn a dance routine from one of our talented choreographers. At the end of class, your choreographer will demonstrate the routine for the class, and you can record the demo for practice at home. Feel free to share your posts on social media — tag us @homnyc !
