The School of Performing Arts!

The Dance Factory School of Performing Arts is celebrating 25 years in business! It began in Redondo Beach in the fall of 1989 as the South Bay Sunray Stars. After 20 years of business in Lomita we moved to Rancho Palos Verdes to the Terraces; which has been our home ever since. Within the last few years, The Dance Factory has made great strides in creating a better studio space, not to mention even more talented dancers. Currently, our Elite Competition Team has placed 1st at every single competition attended, not to mention has received special judge’s awards and scholarships. The Dance Factory staff is happy to be a part of a dance studio that not only promotes local involvement, but also positive energy and fun.

The Dance Factory School of Performing Arts offers an abundance of classes. Ages two through eighteen can enjoy styles such as Jazz, Tap, Ballet, and more. We have three different levels of commitment: recreational, performance, and competitive. From the hours of three to nine during the weekdays, for the convenience of the clients, we provide the best dance training around. Our talented staff welcomes students into a safe and friendly environment. Parents have the pleasure of the surrounding stores, food service, or gym. Families are very pleased to find there is a martial arts studio just one building away for the brothers and sisters of the dancers here at The Dance Factory.

Tap and Jazz

An upbeat, energetic style of dance, Jazz encompasses strength, discipline, and style. Choreography is set to a fast pace music with aerobic- like action involving all muscles in the body. Jazz focuses on increasing flexibility and muscle tone while building musicality and proper technique. While maintaining the upbeat style of Jazz, Technique works strictly on the skills used in this dance form. The following classes concentrate on proper placement, strength, discipline, and style as well as increasing flexibility and muscle tone. These classes teach how to do the skills you see the top-notch dancers perform.
