Having danced at Broadway Dance Center, Alvin Ailey, and Ripley Grier in NYC... I wanted to find dance studios in LA that were comparable, if not better. On my journey to find a dance studio in LA, I have been to Millennium and Movement Lifestyle and I have danced at Edge PAC, IDA Hollywood, BoogieZone, and Your Neighborhood Dance Studio. Each of these studios have their own personality tailoring towards a bit of a different audience. For instance Movement Lifestyle seems to be geared towards the professional dancers and choreographers who dance for a living, while IDA does tailor to the same audience, it seem to focus more on a study type curriculum and offers a classroom type set up. Interestingly enough, even though these studios may tailor to different audiences, there are quite a few teachers/choreographers that are shared among the studios allowing for more flexibility to pick your favorite studio to goto if you like a specific teacher/choreographer.
For me, I am a hobbyist dancer. I have no intention of becoming a famous dancer or taking up dance professionally and that is why I like Your Neighborhood Dance Studio the best... so far. They have a nice balance of offering known teachers/choreographers in a more laid back, less competitive/professional atmosphere. From the receptionist to the students, everyone is friendly and makes you feel welcome.
If this is your first time dancing or if you're a seasoned professional, they welcome you in as a part of the family. Also, their facilities are one of the cleanest that I have ever seen for a dance studio especially when compared to Edge Pac and Millennium.
That being said... I have yet to visit Debbie Reynolds, Dance Fit Studios and I am pretty sure there are many more that I have not mentioned.
