Dance Studios in Los Angeles
There are dance studios in every city of Los Angeles County that offer dance classes for children. Each specializes in different styles of dance, whether it’s ballet, lyrical, hip hop, tap, jazz, musical theater or any combination of these.
If your child wants to learn dance, you need to find the right dance school in the L.A. area for them. In addition to the many different styles of dance, you’ll need to find out how the instructors interact with the students, whether they dance for fun and recreation or competitively, how often your child is expected to attend, and many other factors.
Start out by visiting dance studios while classes are taking place. Watch and see if it’s an environment you think your child would enjoy. Ask questions of other parents who are there to watch their children.
Toddlers’ Dance Class
Just because your child is very young, does not mean he or she cannot join a dance class. Kids can learn to move with the music at a very young age and they love it! Some Los Angeles dance studios offer Mommy n’ Me dance classes.
Beginners’ Dance Class
The next step is to try one out. Many dance schools offer a free class to see if you like it. Some also offer introductory dance classes for beginners through the local city recreation department. When the six or eight week program is over you can sign up for ongoing classes with that studio or try another one.
