WHY CHOOSE US?

Danceline LA has a safe and friendly environment, which is perfect for young dancers coming to LA for the first time.

Danceline LA is excited to launch our new training program for aspiring dancers in Los Angeles.  Our program is a great way to get introduced to the LA area, the dance industry, and meet the right people.  Coming to LA is extremely intimidating.  Our goal is to guide dancers interested in working as professionals  and give them the materials needed to be successful.  Dancers will receive 9 months of training from our amazing teachers and staff. They will also receive performing opportunities, dance workshops, exposure to commercial agents, and a place to call HOME!
