Los Angeles Ballet Academy offers a complete program for the young dancer. Andrea Paris established her program in 1992. LABA's teachers come from diverse backgrounds to teach a standard methodology of classical ballet which nurtures young bodies, with age appropriate development and strong technique. LABA offers strength building, flexibility, focus, creativity and a love of movement to boys and girls interested in dance. Our preschool program introduces youngsters 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. Preschool classes are offered at the studio and are available by request at outside locations. 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. Being in the L.A. area, LABA is very fortunate to have some of the cities top Jazz and Tap dancers, choreographers and convention teachers on the faculty, as master teachers, workshop tutors and guest choreographers.
