Below are the current offerings you can enjoy at our Dance Studio closest to the city of El Segundo.
Our smooth and standard dance classes will have you feeling like you are on the silver screen, dancing the Tango, Foxtrot, Waltz, Viennese Waltz, or Quickstep.When you picture the glamourous dance moves from the Golden Age of film, these are the dances you envision. Lovely, elegant, and classic, they are perfect for romantic moments, special events, and more.
If you are looking to bring the heat, learning a variety of Latin Dances is the way to go. These dances are all about passion, freedom, and uninhibited self-expression. If you are looking to really build your confidence as a dancer, or just pick up some fun and sensual moves to show off on the dance floor, we recommend you take a lesson in one of our many Latin dance classes. Our Dance Studio teaches the Bolero, Rumba, Mambo, Cha-cha, Samba, Paso Doble, Merengue, and Salsa.
Country Western Dances
Country Western dances are pure Americana, allowing you to have a lot of fun while really connecting to the history and culture of the United States. Inspired by dances brought by European settlers during westward expansion, Country Western dances are all about smooth gliding and scooting. Whether you are interested in the Country Western Waltz, Texas Two-Step, Country Shuffle, Country Swing, West Coast Swing, the Progressive Two-Step, the Country Triple, or any combination of the above, we can help you build your skill and self-assurance in this dance style.
Specialty dances are not a unified category of dance. Rather, they are a mixture of old and new styles that have risen in popularity in recent years. These are the dances you should learn if you want to impress with your dance skills in any setting, from wedding receptions to nightclubs. Some of the specialty dances we teach include the Nightclub Two-Step, Bachata, the Argentine Tango, and the Zouk.
Swing and Rhythm Dances
Swing and Rhythm Dances are many varied dances that rose to popularity during the Swing Era in the United States. These dances are fun, athletic, and always impress. While we are experts in all the dance lessons we teach, Swing and Rhythm Dances hold a special place in our heart, as Arthur Murray himself was instrumental in building its notoriety. Our talented instructors can teach you the East Coast Swing, West Coast Swing, Lindy Hop, Jitterbug, Hustle, and the Jive.
Reasons to Take Dance Classes
With over 100 years of experience, our goal is to get you dancing, and to ensure you feel great every time you grace a dance floor.

Between our classes and dance socials, you are sure to make great connections while perfecting your movements. Once you take our classes, you will never be a wallflower again.
A wedding is an exciting event; it can also be a nerve-wracking one if you aren’t confident in your dancing abilities. Whether you are the bride and groom, a member of the wedding party, or just an attendee who wants to feel better about enjoying the evening, our instructors are here to help. From basic steps to choreographed routines, we can offer the precise level of instruction you need.
For many special events, dancing is central to the celebration. We are more than happy to help you prepare for your special occasion, whether it is a ball, gala, cruise, wedding, bar/bat mitzvah, reunion, or something else entirely. We will use our knowledge and expertise to teach the specific dances you most need for your upcoming event.
Dance competitions are a great way to grow both as a dancer and as an individual. Just in the Southern California area, there are hundreds of competitions to enjoy each year, for novice dancers and experts alike. If you love to move and love to compete, our competitive dance programs will help you develop your style, technique, choreography, and showmanship so you can really wow the judges and audience — and get your competition quaking in their dance shoes.
What to Expect from Your Dance Lessons
The exact steps taken by our instructors will vary based on your experience, ability, and interests. This means that we might start with the basics so you can develop your foundation, or we might get right to polishing your moves and working on your showmanship. And since we offer group classes and individual lessons, the type of lesson will also impact how we approach our instruction.
No matter your wants and needs, it all begins with our introductory lesson, designed to help you get a feel for the way we teach and help us get an idea of your individual needs. After this class, your instructor will sit down with you to identify your goals and give you some guidance. This will also be when you determine what level of instruction you require, from our introductory program to our bronze, silver, and gold programs.
