Why LaVida?

We strive for excellence in quality of dance instructions, while helping kids to fall in love with dance as an art form, as well as an expression of oneself.
We believe that a good dancer is not only the one who learns a certain choreography in a particular dance style to perfection. A good dancer is also the one who is free within his/her body, able to express oneself to any music, understand, feel and appreciate various dance styles, and able to simply dance in front of peers, away from stage with freedom, confidence and ease whether to a contemporary music or a cha-cha.
Therefore, our classes are structured to encourage young kids to keep their spontaneous creative spirit and to help teenagers let go of psychological fear of criticism, a fear that blocks self-expression.
While we give our students opportunities to learn choreography, right techniques, perform in our annual stage productions and compete, our main goal is to prepare their physical self (flexibility, strength, coordination and etc.), develop musical ear, and teach how to enjoy dancing – the benefit for a lifetime.
