About South Bay Dance Center

Founded in 1999 by director Kit Ashleigh-Dean, South Bay Dance Center has grown into the premier studio to study all genres of dance. The 2019-2020 school year, our 23rd season, is a great time to be dancing with us. We have a full schedule of class offerings, and an exciting array of special events and performance opportunities on the calendar. From early beginners through professional level students and adults, we have classes for all that want to study dance. Every student who trains at SBDC receives a quality dance education in a positive learning environment. At SBDC, we are fortunate to have wonderfully qualified instructors who are all passionate about the art of dance, who believe in the ability of dance to transform individuals, and who treasure the unique qualities within each student. Our mission is simple: We at SBDC are committed to training and motivating a new generation of dancers. 


South Bay Dance Center is located in a safe and friendly neighborhood setting with plenty of parking. There are four spacious dance studios and a Pilates reformer station. All studios have raised floors and Marley floor covering. The viewing windows in each studio help students grow in poise and confidence, as they become accustomed to having an "audience." In addition, parents enjoy having the opportunity to observe classes through the windows.
