Established in 1984 by Karen Willes, Carousel Dance Studio is located in the West San Fernando Valley. The West Valley school is dedicated to excellence in dance training; our critically acclaimed staff consists of professional working dancers/choreographers and Carousel alumni.
We offer a variety of styles and classes for children ages 3 and up, including Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Tumbling, and more. For adults, we offer Beginning Hip Hop. We also host a special needs dance class on Saturday mornings in collaboration with the Ishan Foundation.
Our aim is to provide a well rounded education in all areas of dance with an emphasis on a strong ballet foundation.
Performances in which all students may participate are presented in the Spring.
Our instructors have years of experience in dance and teaching, and many of them are also professional dancers. They are dedicated to helping each student reach their full potential.
We keep our class sizes small to ensure that each student receives individual attention and personalized feedback. This allows for a more effective and enjoyable learning experience.
We offer multiple performance opportunities throughout the year, including our annual recital. These events give students the chance to showcase their skills and gain confidence on stage.
