About our Dance Program for Adults

Perhaps you've always wanted to learn to dance in a certain style but never had the time until now? Perhaps you took dance classes years ago as a child and have been meaning to take them up again? Perhaps you're a professional preparing for upcoming auditions and just need extra guidance? Perhaps you have a certain goal in mind - i.e. you want to perform a dance routine at a wedding?

At LAAPA, many adult students study with us each week. Your dance instructor will make you feel right at home! We are happy to teach adult students at any level from brand new beginners to advanced. Private dance lessons and group classes are provided in a fun, low pressure environment.

Adults may choose to study in any of our dance programs as it truly is never too late to start! Participation in our recitals of course is optional (as it is for all of our students)!

How do Classes for Adults Differ from Those of Younger Students?

Younger students are usually unsure of their goals when joining a dance class. One of the reasons that our faculty enjoy working with adult students is because they usually know exactly why they've decided to join and exactly what they're wanting to work towards! This level of clarity and motivation excites all of us here at LAAPA and makes a substantial difference in terms of you receiving fulfilling lessons. Our goal with our adult students is to make each lesson or class a perfect combination of each student's wants and needs.

What Programs are Open to Adult Students?

Adults may choose to participate in any of the following adult classes: Adult Ballet, Adult Tap, Adult Hip-Hop, Adult Contemporary/Modern, and private dance lessons.


What are the Benefits of an Education in Dance for Adults?

As adults, we have so many demands on our time with family, work, volunteering, and friends. Then comes technology - which was invented to save us time, however we usually use it to cram in more work instead of enjoying the extra free time! Dance classes allow us the opportunity to unwind, stretch your body, and get some exercise while learning something new.


Is it Really "Never Too Late" to Begin Lessons?

Yes! We've helped bring the joy of dance to many adult beginners over the years. With practice and dedication, anything is possible!


Do I Have to Participate in Recitals?

Though strongly encouraged, our dance recitals are completely optional for all of our students, and you'll never need to set a foot on a stage if you don't want to! We realize that every student has a variety of goals in mind and some students just want to learn to dance for their own enjoyment while others can't wait to jump into the spotlight!
