WHY CHOOSE US
Top 10 Reasons You Should Choose California DanceArts
How do you choose the right school?
We realize that you have many choices for dance education within our diverse arts community and we appreciate your support as we strive to deliver the highest caliber dance education available. Here are a few of the ways we strive to accomplish this:
#1: We have certified American Ballet Theatre® Teachers!
California DanceArts is proud to include the AMERICAN BALLET THEATRE® National Training Curriculum, a breakthrough 9-level program that combines high quality artistic training with the basics of dancer health and child development.
The ABT® National Training Curriculum consists of a comprehensive set of age-appropriate, outcome-based guidelines to provide the highest quality ballet training to dance students of all ages and skill levels. Primary through Level 3 is taught by ABT® Affiliate Certified Teacher, Aerin Holt, who has successfully completed the ABT® Teacher Training Intensive in Primary through Level 3 of the ABT® National Training Curriculum.
The ABT’s National Curriculum for the development and training embraces sound ballet principles and incorporates elements of the French school, Cecchetti Italian School and Russian Vaganova training methods.
"Ballet dancing is arduous, strenuous activity. Students are engaged in physical training that rivals the training Olympic athletes undergo. At the same time, they strive for physical perfection not for the prowess alone but as a way of achieving the means necessary to express the pure nature of their art."
- George Balanchine

Each studio features 20-foot high ceilings geared for unobstructed jumping (this feature also allows us to provide our Aerial Ballet program!), wall mirrors and air conditioning.
A comfortable lounge for relaxation while you wait for your class. We offer free Wi-Fi so our students can finish homework or our parents can work on business or shop online! We also have many computers in our Student Center for use.
Our largest studio transforms into a theatre for intimate performances with drop-down backdrops, state of the art stereo equipment, theatre lights and more!
