Studio Policies

Welcome to L.A. Dance! 
We are a multi-award winning studio in our 14th year! Our studio is not like any other studio in town. It is our goal to push every student to achieve their goals in dance as well as in life! With our caring and personal teaching techniques, each dancer will be able to fulfill their complete potential. We feel that it is important to begin teaching every student proper techniques and skills from the beginning of their dance experience. Classes are offered at every skill level. Dancers will be placed in the proper class level which will allow them to feel comfortable, grow, and get the most out of their dance experience.
