Mission: To provide aspiring ballet dancers of all ages an emotionally safe and professional studio environment that promotes personal, technical & artistic growth.
West Coast Ballet School is a new, family owned, dance school located in Hermosa Beach, CA. WCBS offers classical ballet training for ages 4 and up. Classes include Creative Movement, Ballet Levels 1-3 and Adult Ballet Class (Suitable for adult beginners and experienced dancers 14+). I have created the class schedule around local school schedules. I may add more adult classes or classes during the day for home school groups as we grow and requests come in.
Classes are designed to provide personal attention and high level technique training with a cap of just 12 dancers per class! There is a strong focus on barre and building a great foundation suitable for the recreational dancer or any dancer dreaming of turning pro. Technique is Vaganova based. The Vaganova method is a ballet technique and training system devised by the Russian dancer and pedagogue Agrippina Vaganova (1879–1951). The training systems designed to involve the whole body in every movement, with equal attention paid to the upper body, legs and feet (Wikipedia). That is how I was trained at some of the top schools in the country including Ellison Ballet, American Ballet Theatre, and Master Ballet Academy. You can read more about my training, performance experience, and awards below in the Teachers section.
West Coast Ballet School is just getting started. If it is a strong work ethic you desire you can gain that important life (and dance) skill at WCBS. If you are seeking structured fun you are in the right place. We hope you will come try a class and grow with us. We have big plans but are committed to starting small and attracting some of the best families and dancers in Southbay (Hermosa Beach, Manhattan Beach, Redondo Beach, Torrance, El Segundo, etc). Classes are small so now is the best time to get involved! Read on to learn about the teachers and dance classes!
