Testimonials

  • As a teacher myself, I have always been impressed with the energy, enthusiasm, and professionalism of all the School of Dance & Music instructors Also the staff behind the scenes makes the whole organization shine. They keep everything running smoothly, seamlessly and create a nurturing environment for my daughter and all of the young dancers and musicians.

    Annette Owens

  • I love how you feel a sense of family and caring when you walk in the door.

    Teresa Kadlec

  • I have watched the studio grow over the past 11 years and you will not get better service anywhere. Their quality of instruction, the actual studio itself, and access to a multitude of classes and times are unmatched in the South Bay. My daughter has a confidence that most kids don`t have because of her experiences here.

    John Destasio

  • Any dance and music school can teach, but it can be hard to find teachers who are loved by their students. You will find that here!

    Stacia Muse

  • Something must be said where amongst all the activities that our children choose to be involved with, that this school has instilled a love and respect for dance and their desire to push themselves to improve at their skills.

Trying to decide between a few different
Dance or Music Schools?

Since 1997 over 10,000 students have taken dance classes and music lessons at the School of Dance & Music. We started as a very small one-room studio, but have grown to become the premier dance and music school in the South Bay. We offer dance classes in Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Tap, Preschool Dance, Mommy and Me, Ballroom, Break Dance and other dance styles. We offer music lessons in piano lessons, guitar lessons, voice lessons, violin lessons, and drums lessons. We have music lessons and dance classes at a variety of times so that you can book classes for different children at the same time to save you hours of driving and waiting time.

Our 3 locations provide convenience and variety to our valued students. We are constantly improving our facilities and providing on-going training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible.

We do not believe we are the best dance and music school because we are the biggest. Instead, we believe we are the biggest because families think we are the best...which is why we were voted "Best in the South Bay" multiple years in a row!

We realize you have a choice between several different dance studios and music schools in the South Bay. We invite you to compare all of the features and options to see why our school has been chosen more than any other dance studio or music school in Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, El Segundo, Torrance, Hawthorne, Lawndale, Palos Verdes, Gardena, Lomita, Westchester, and the South Bay.
