Who We Are
We have worked tirelessly since 1999 to create a safe, supportive and creative atmosphere where students of all ages and skill levels can use dance and music to express themselves and develop an amazing amount of confidence. Our dance classes and music lessons are all diverse and reflect each instructor’s passion for their style, for teaching children and their own individual artistic background.
Our mission is to provide a space to build confidence and friendship by inspiring children of all ages to express and celebrate the wonderfully alive individual inside.
We offer dance classes in ballet, hip hop, jazz, contemporary, tap, preschool dance, mommy and me, and other dance styles. We offer private music lessons including piano lessons, voice lessons, violin lessons, guitar lessons, and drum lessons. We have dance classes and music lessons offered at many times so that you can book classes for different children at the same time to make your family’s schedule a little easier.
Our music teachers all have university degrees and are very experienced in working with students from newbies to seasoned professionals. Our music program offers regular low pressure recitals as a great way to build confidence and performance skills. Our end of the year dance recitals are held at the beautiful Redondo Performing Arts Center and give our dance students an opportunity to showcase their progression with professional costumes, lighting and choreography to make it an awesome event for the whole family.
We serve Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Palos Verdes, Gardena, Lomita, Westchester, and the greater South Bay.
