My daughter has been taking various dance lessons here since they opened. She loves the instructors who are all awesome and great with the kids. Every summer, they have dance recitals that are wonderfully organized and coordinated. Santa Monica School of Dance and Music rocks!
My daughter has taken lessons for 2 years. It is a wonderful studio with wonderful teachers! We also love the summer camps, especially the all-in-one camp. The studio is well kept and the staff are always friendly. The annual recital is amazing!
The dance instructors are really amazing with children! They have so much positive energy! Additionally, they have a ton of classes throughout the week and are extremely flexible with make ups. Everyone goes out of their way to be friendly and accommodating. Overall it's been a really great experience!
The classes are smaller than other dance studios, so there is more opportunity for one-on-one instruction. I have recommended this studio to many of my friends with kids and would recommend it anyone who is looking for a dance studio. This studio is definitely the best dance and music school in Santa Monica!
Santa Monica School of Dance and Music has been such a wonderful dance studio. The staff is friendly and kind. Easy to get to. Parking right in front. It's not your play around and do a few dance moves. It's serious but applicable to their age. We love this dance studio!
