Beach Cities Dance

manhattan beach, ca.

Beach Cities Dance is the longest-established, most award-winning and critically acclaimed dance studio of its kind in the entire South Bay area (and beyond!). Located in beautiful Manhattan Beach, our brand new location boasts a sprung, state-of-the-art dance floor, wall-to-wall mirrors, sunshine streaming through its windows and a faculty that is second-to-none.

We specialize in tap, jazz, ballet, pointe, musical theatre, hip hop, lyrical, contemporary...and we teach some pretty FANTASTIC adult classes, as well!

From age 2 and up, we treat every dancer as an individual while in a classroom setting. Hence our mantra:

The education of all. One dancer at a time. Always.

We believe strongly in what we do and what we stand for. Our old-school-type dicipline, a structure modeled after the by-gone years responsible for shaping some of the worlds best dancers, sends our students into the world prepared for ANYthing. Good HUMANS first, good DANCERS second. Strong, responsible, confident, courageous, intelligent, thoughtful, generous, READY.

For those dancers desiring more, we offer the opportunity to join the BEACH CITIES DANCE PERFORMING/COMPETING COMPANY. This company is nationally ranked and was chosen as one of the top 50 companies in the united states! It has traveled to Austria to perform in an invitation-only event, TANZSOMMER...and has been invited back several time since. We encourage dancers to compete with themselves rather than each other, thereby allowing them to remain nurturing and kind to their class/teammates. This preserves the positive morale in the classroom which ultimately makes for a freer flow of creativity and thus better art.

In short, our Company is a team of fantastic, passionate artists supported by an equally fantastic group of parents (what dance teacher can honestly say that!?). We love what we do, we love each other like family and we give of ourselves freely. We create great art, we are sensitive to our environment and the needs of others, we are diligently and actively trying to be better humans.

So, what are you waiting for? Come dance with us. Mature dancer, tiny dancer, former dancer, dancing-when-no-one's-watching dancer - - - we all speak the same language: DANCE.

Beach Cities Dance: powerfully inspiring. Be in love with the journey.
