How we run the studio

Sherman Oaks Dance Academy has a long standing record of providing quality classes with detailed attention to each student.

Our progressive curriculum is designed for all levels, challenging the students regardless of their ability and experience. Our faculty is carefully selected for their experience, ability to teach effectively, ability to communicate well and connect with their students, and to get results. All instructors are professional performers in the industry with impressive resumes. We strive to inspire each student and to develop the same passion for dance we have.
