Los Angeles Ballet Academy
Andrea Paris-Gutierrez established her program in 1992. The school has grown from 30 students to over 500 children and adults today. LABA's teachers come from diverse backgrounds and teach a standard methodology of classical ballet which nurtures young bodies, with age appropriate development and strong technique. The current ballet program is based on the purity and classicism of the British system of training and for the Intermediate and Advanced dancers adds the influence of Russian based training and teachers that produces strong, precise and artistic classical dancers. Our preschool program was created by Andrea Paris-Gutierrez and introduces girls and boys between the ages of 3-6 to the joy of dance with stretching, various music styles, rhythms and dance basics in a fun and creative environment. Dance training can be a wonderful addition to a child's life, the awareness of the anatomy and the ability to control the body's muscles, as well as finding their creativity and the artist within will stand them in good stead for all they do. LABA is very fortunate to have some of LA's top Jazz, Tap, Contemporary & Hip Hop choregraphers and instructors on faculty, as well as bringing in master teachers, workshop tutors and guest choreographers.and guests in all dance forms on a regular basis throughout the year.
