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, Contemporary, Hip Hop, Tap, Preschool Dance, Mommy and Me, Ballroom, Break Dance, Aerial and other dance styles. We also offer piano lessons, guitar lessons, voice lessons, violin lessons, bass guitar and drums lessons. We have music lessons and dance classes at a variety of times so that you can book classes for multiple 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 and families. 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.
