John Nilsson and April Rodriguez opened Premiere Dance Studio in order to create a community for dancers of all levels, budgets, and schedules to come together. They teach classes in a broad spectrum of styles such as swing, both International Standard and American Smooth waltz and tango, and social dances such as west coast swing. To encourage students to test out their new moves, they host dance parties and other events, as well as offering private lessons for couples brushing up for a wedding.
The instructors of Origins Dance Academy have traveled far and wide to learn and practice their craft, from choreographing in Los Angeles to dancing in prestigious European and Canadian ballet companies to appearing in area musicals. That wide range of experience allows them to teach youngsters in a wide variety of classes, including tap, ballet, and hip-hop. Origins also occasionally presents its students in performances and sends them to competitions judged by technique, difficulty, and how well the dancers perform sequences from Swan Lake while partnered with real swans.
At Five Star Dance Studios, certified instructors take the lead and teach students swing, cha-cha, salsa, waltz, and more. They can even teach the hustle, and will provide personalized instruction for wedding dances. Classes for all skill levels are available, in both private and group lessons.
No matter their age or chosen discipline of dance, students can practice and learn their art at K. Monique's Studio of Dance. Instructors lead classes in a variety of styles, including jazz, lyrical and modern dance, hip-hop, ballet, and tap. Instructors also lead a number of fitness and health conscious classes, which range from Zumba to Pilates, Piloxing crossover classes that fuse Pilates and boxing, and boot camps that help burn calories with interval training drills.
Having passed on their rug-cutting inclinations to local celebrities such as basketball coach Denny Crum, the sure-footed staff at Shall We Dance? continues to unleash an arsenal of graceful moves inside their two studios. Students of all skill levels step in time with the school's curriculum of Latin, nightclub, and American dance styles during private or group lessons, using their feet like metal detectors to scan the floor for long-lost grooves. Stately triple beats whirl waltzers across the floor, steamy struts abound in tango lessons, and fox-trot instructors bring students to their knees in classical hunting poses and many more dance styles. Neophytes can then show off their new steps during practice parties with whimsical themes.
