How old are you guys?

You and your friends might want to pick up some guidebooks and have everyone choose one thing they definitely want to see/do.

You could see a Broadway musical (especially one with a lot of dance). Depending on your exact dates, there could be other dance-related performances.

Depending on how large your group is, you might want to look into ProMusicaTours.com They organize customized student tours for dance, music or theater. I have no personal experience with them or know whether it's a good value, but it could be worth checking out.

For general tourist activities, there are TONS of them. You'll need to chose what interests you the most, then figure out which ones you can do in the time you have.

Emily, on the right side of this page on the full website (not the app) is a column marked top questions on NYC. Lots of info linked there. But here are a few specific ideas to consider:

Accomplicenewyork.com

A fun thing for a group

Onboardtours.com

Realnewyorktours

Good tour cos. first uses a bus, the second subway and walking

Radio City tour where you get to meet a rockette

www.radiocity.com/tours/stage-door-tour.html

You dont say what kind of dance you do but in addition to the ballet you'll find at Lincoln Center, there's some dance at City Center and also at the Joyce theater. Here's a more complete list

If you want more specific info, you have to privide more specific questions.

If they have available at that time one of the tours of Radio City Music Hall that are led by one of the Rockettes, they might like that, too.

Newsies would be a great choice if you want to see a Broadway show.

Although you want to see all the sights, NYC is a dance capital. What kind of dance does your class like?

Of course, stop by Alvin Ailey Studio, where you can see dance classes through the new building window.

Check out Joyce Theatre or other locations to watch a professional dance performance.

Go to an "open" dance class. (Depending on the number of you, the school might be able to arrange a private class)

Tour behind the scenes at Lincoln Center (New York City Ballet, American Ballet Theatre)

PS: Your group might enjoy this. Watch full Youtube because the surprise is at the end.
