  • “This place is amazing. Great atmosphere, everyone’s friendly and the teacher’s excellent and very creative. It’s so nice to finally have a real dance studio in the neighborhood. I’ve been taking dance classes since I was little and I tried several studios in L.A. but it was always a disappointing experience-careless teachers, bad attitudes and overpriced classes. ABC’S Of Dance meets all my needs and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to start taking dance classes or progress with their training. I’m taking ballet and jazz classes and it’s always fun to go to class! Not to mention I lost almost 7 pounds in a few weeks without dieting! Definitely a better alternative to the gym!”

FAQs

Can I take class as a drop-in or try a single class?

Not at this time. Students must be registered for classes in order to attend. During this time, we are limiting the number of students that we take in class. We wouldn’t want you to show up ready to dance, only to be turned away because we are at capacity for that class. We also have a minimum number of students needed in order to have the class, so we need to have students registered to be able to continue offering the class.

We may be able to open up spots for drop-ins in the future. If you would like to be notified of drop-in availability in the future – please join our email list below!

The class I want to register for is full – what can I do?

Join the waiting list! Sometimes students will switch to another class, COVID protocols may allow us to add students, or we may be able to create a new class with enough interest. If you are on the list, you will be the next person in line if a spot or new class opens up. You can register online for the waiting list by clicking on the “Register” link next to the class you want to register for.

I attended classes pre-COVID and purchased a class package that I was unable to use due to the closure – can I get a credit?

Of course! If you purchased a class package, we will put a credit on your account for the monetary value of the package you purchased, less the classes you attended. For example, if you purchased a $150 class package (10 classes, $15 each) and you took 4 classes, your account will be credited $90.

Simply register below and leave us a note in the “Comments” section that you would like to use your class credit. You will still need to input your credit card information, but it will not be charged until your credit has been used.

How does billing work?

Tuition is auto-billed monthly at the rate listed next to the class you are registering for. The first payment is due upon enrollment, and the following payments are billed on the 15th of the month from September 15, 2021 – May 15, 2022.

If you would like to release your spot during the Dance Season (August – June), we require 3 business days notice to remove you from auto-billing.
