The Dance Factory School of Performing Arts!

The Dance Factory School of Performing Arts is celebrating 30 years in business! It began in Redondo Beach in the fall of 1989 as the South Bay Sunray Stars. We offer an abundance of classes; ages two through eighteen can enjoy styles such as Hip Hop, Jazz, Tap, Ballet, and more. We have three different levels of commitment: recreational, performance, and competitive. 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 suite away for the brothers and sisters of the dancers here at The Dance Factory.

The Level of instruction, technique and choreography is top tier and wonderful! My daughter loves dancing for TDF. She started with recreational classes and has now been part of the elite competition team for 5 years. She works hard and the studio has high expectations of the dancers, which I believe is important in life!!! Most importantly the girls have tons of fun!! I highly recommend this studio to any boys and girls with a love for dance!! – 2018

The Dance Factory School of Performing Arts is a "tiny but mighty" studio where children of all ages and skill levels thrive as they learn new steps and techniques in dance. Dance is a wonderful, creative and energy outlet that gives children drive, teaches them focus, and encourages socialization and emotional development. Dance is known to serve as a foundation for physical health and mobility, for a toddler just learning to walk or an athlete who can benefit by increasing his/her balance,flexibility, and endurance.
