Classes

From ballet to hip hop, and everything in between, LA Dance offers a full line-up of classes designed to provide students with a well-rounded education in dance.


In addition to learning dance technique, students in all LA Dance classes (except for Ballet Technique and Turns/Leaps/Extensions) will learn routines which will be performed at the end-of-season Recital.

​​Beginning Turns/Leaps/Extensions*

This is a beginner technique class that focuses on tricks and the conditioning needed to execute them safely and correctly. This class is required for members of the Diva Dolls and Glamour Girls competition team classes.


Advanced Turns/Leaps/Extensions*

This is a more advanced technique class that focuses on tricks and the conditioning needed to execute them safely and correctly. This class is required for members of the Sassy Squad, Showstoppers, Jr. Company, and Company competition team classes.


Beginning Ballet Technique*

This is a beginner technique class.  Students will learn foot positioning, arm placement, and correct terminology while utilizing the barre and working across the floor.  This class is required for members of the Diva Dolls, Glamour Girls, and Sassy Squad competition team classes.


Advanced Ballet Technique*

This is a more advanced technique class.  Students will continue to expand their knowledge on multiple methods and their associated terminology.  Students will continue to progress in their muscle development using more advanced and challenging exercises.  This class is required for members of the Showstoppers, Jr. Company, and Company competition team classes.


Teen Technique*

This is a technique class designed for teens who have only recently started dance and who need a beginner/intermediate level curriculum while attending a class with students their own age.  This class is required for members of the Competition Teen competition team class.


Twinkle Toes

This is where the magic begins!  Students (ages 1 1/2 to 3) will learn basics in movement with an emphasis on ballet and jazz.


Itty Bits

This class is another great place to start for young dancers.  Students (ages 3 to 4) will learn basics in movement and musicality with an emphasis on ballet and tap.


Little Movers

This is a combination class for beginners.  Students (ages 4 to 5) will learn basics in ballet, tap, and jazz while expanding their education with dance vocabulary and theater basics.


Combo I

This is a combination class for beginners with little to no prior dance experience.  Students (ages 6 to 8) will explore a slightly more in depth curriculum of basic techniques in ballet, tap, and jazz.


Combo II

This is a combination class for students with some prior dance experience.  Students (ages 8 to 10) will continue to expand their knowledge in ballet, tap, and jazz.  During this class, the curriculum will begin to get more focused and intense.


Combo III

This is a combination class for students with prior dance experience.  Students (ages 11 to 13) will continue to learn tap and jazz along with ballet technique.  In addition, they will begin to explore lyrical dance.  Students in this class are expected to be practicing on their own at home as well as stretching often to advance their skills at a more consistent and rapid rate.  Students who lack this focus and drive should consider remaining in Combo II until such discipline is acquired.


Teen Combo

This is a beginner class for late bloomers!  It is never too late to learn to dance, and this class was created to cater to teens who have decided to try something new.  Students (ages 13 to 18) will explore basics in ballet technique while focusing on jazz and contemporary styles of dance.


Hip Hop I, II, & III

These classes provide instruction in dance styles as seen in music videos, urban culture, and street dancing at three different skill levels.  Advancement within the classes are allowed upon instructor approval.



* Because these classes focus solely on learning proper dance techniques, students taking these classes will not be learning routines for the annual recital. All other classes will learn at least one routine and are required to participate in the end-of-year recital.
