The Studio


You can feel the ocean breeze at You Can Dance! We are located in the heart of the beach cities in South Bay, comfortably nestled between Hermosa Beach and Redondo Beach.



The Floor

Our dance floor is a “floating floor”, meaning it is elevated by “ribs” that keep it slightly above the concrete so that it has some give to it. It is designed so that your feet and knees will not suffer as they would from dancing on a solid surface. Our floor is designed by Junckers – the same company who designs the dance floor for ‘Dancing With The Stars’, and is the same floor they use in their ballroom.



The Sound

We have a state of the art sound system at You Can Dance, designed and installed by Dylan Sanford – Cinematographer. Feel the bass surging through the studio, and get lost in the music! Every night feels like a party at You Can Dance.



The Decor

Rich paint adorn the studio walls, and lush leather sofas surround the ballroom. A disco ball spins and glows on party nights, and warm lighting fills the atmosphere. Be sure to take a gander at the awards around the ballroom, as well as the autographed posters from ‘Dancing With The Stars’!

Wedding Dances


Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. We can help you make your day even more special with a romantic first dance. Our wedding specialists will help you every step of the way.

During your first dance, all eyes are on you. That can be a bit nerve-racking. We will choreograph a simple or challenging routine to a song of your choice – whatever fits you as a couple. The most important thing is to be comfortable and have fun with each other!

Our Wedding Package includes:

  • 3, 5 or 10 Private Lessons
  • Assistance with song selection
  • Coordination with DJ
  • Opportunity for spotlight dance at studio for practice!

Please contact us today to set up your package & for prices.

Need a song?  We can help. Click here for some suggestions.


How To Begin Ballroom Dancing

New to dancing? New to ballroom? Not sure where to begin? We’re here to help! At ‘You Can Dance’ learning to dance is fun, fast and easy! You CAN dance! Here’s what you need to know first:


Studio Dress Code

  • Wear comfortable, appropriate clothing. Keep in mind that Ballroom and Latin dancing is done in close proximity to your partner. Make it a pleasant experience for everyone.


  • Shoes: Preferably dance shoes, but not a must. If not, leather soled shoes are the next best substitute. Avoid sneakers or flip flops. They are difficult to dance in and stick to the floor. Women’s shoes without a back tend to fall off. It is requested that you change from your street shoes to your dance shoes BEFORE going out on our dance floor.


We offer three levels of classes at our studio:

You can come into our studio with 10 years experience, or none at all, there is something for everyone.

Salsa Program

Salsa has taken the dance scene by storm. It’s the HOTTEST thing happening in all Hollywood & L.A. night clubs. Time to get in on the action! Our Salsa Program includes four levels of classes and weekend Salsa “boot camps”. We also provide Latin social parties for our students to practice their Salsa steps!


Salsa Basics

Never danced Salsa before? Salsa Basics is the perfect class for you to start with! You’ll learn very basic patterns and beginning technique, as well as Salsa timing. You’ll get to dance with a partner, and after taking this class just a few times, you will be ready to impress someone on the dance floor!



Salsa I (Fundamentals)

This class is great for beginners! Dancers will work on learning basic Salsa steps, the basic laws of leading and following, rhythms and technique and, of course, a bit of social etiquette (as Salsa is a social dance). If you take this class combined with Salsa Basics each week, you are going to start enjoying your dancing much sooner and will be able to join the ntermediate level class much faster!



Salsa II

In this class, the focus will be on leading and following integral patterns of social Salsa. Elements emphasized will include crossing the dance slot, changing of hands, moving into and out of a closed position, turns for both leader and follower, checking actions, and styling!



Salsa III

In our advanced class, you will start to work on your own personal style of dancing.  This includes musicality, learning how to accent and create dynamic movement, as well as continued development of turn skills and more complicated figures. It takes both skill and knowledge to be able to fashion your own combinations and steps, and we will make sure to help you develop these abilities to make your Salsa a personal, fun and exciting experience.



Salsa Boot Camps

Boot Camps are great for beginners as well as for intermediate level dancers! For beginners who would like to join intermediate level salsa classes sooner, this is a wonderful opportunity for you to get your salsa basics going and even work on some intermediate level patterns! Two types of Boot Camps will be offered:

  • Salsa Boot Camp: All levels
  • Salsa Boot Camp: Beg./Int levels

Boot camps are held for 1 day (on the weekend) and last for several hours! They can be quite an experience!

For boot camps geared toward all levels, the focus will be on troubleshooting common errors and pitfalls encountered in social Salsa. The course will be condensed and physically challenging if you stay for all 3 lessons (hence “boot camp”). However, you don’t have to stay for all 3 lessons! This camp can be taken as just 1 or 2 classes as well. The choice is your’s.

The focus of beg./int. boot camps is going to be on basic leading and following skills, which are crucial to know in partner dancing. New steps and patterns are going to be introduced as well. Bring your friends with you!







Latin Social Dance Parties & Outings

Our social parties are another tool we want you to use in your learning process! Here, we have students and teachers practicing the steps and enjoying the social, friendly atmosphere. We also take organized trips (via limo or party bus!) as a YCD group to famous Salsa clubs all over Southern California!



Exhibition Dancing

Competition and Performance



You can take your dancing in many different directions at You Can Dance Studio. Competition & Performance is an exciting and challenging way to take your dancing to another level.

  • We can design a program just for you, depending what your interests are. We will work with you to help you decide if you would like to choose an amateur partner or if you would like to compete with a professional pro-am partner. From there we begin to teach you routines and technique to get you ready!
  • Competing can be a fun way to challenge yourself! You may also be interested in performing! Performance dancing is similar to competition dancing. There are a lot of the same elements, and you will learn the art of stage presence and choreography.
  • At You Can Dance, we offer many opportunities to do spotlight performances with your teacher and also to perform outside of the studio!

Please contact us today to get started, we can put a personalized package together for you and discuss costs and details.

  • We went to an introductory lesson last night and we both had a great time. The steps were explained in a great way and the instructors were VERY patient. Highly recommend this studio if you are looking to improve your dancing skills or are like us–trying to get your moves down for the ‘first dance’.

    ScottManhattan Beach
  • My wife and I took classes to learn a choreographed first dance for our wedding. We absolutely loved Alina and loved learning the Rumba at YCD. Alina was really flexible with scheduling appointments around my crazy schedule (I travel for work). And most important, the first dance was flawless! Big thanks to the excellent (and really fun) training at YCD.

    Miss L.Redondo Beach
  • If you’re a beginner and have never gotten dance lessons like my fiance and me, and don’t want to do the “slow dance shuffle” for your first dance at your wedding, this is the place to go!!! Alina was patient, fun, extremely helpful and HONEST. She told us when something looked bad and helped us to fix it. I’ve seen first dances at weddings where the bride/groom had taken a dance lesson or two together, but none of them looked that polished or impressive and some had weird/funky moves. I have to say that Alina really helped us to learn a dance that goes with the song we chose and looks great!

    PeterHermosa Beach
  • Great instructor, great experience. The studio is clean and professional. Anna is the most friendly as well as [most] experienced instructor I have yet to come across. Highly recommended!

    ChameleonLos Angeles
  • I take private lessons with Eno, and it has been extremely beneficial to me. He continues to help me grow as a ballroom dancer, and even when I don’t always get the steps – he never let’s me leave the studio feeling discouraged. He’s amazing, inside and out. Have to admit that I sometimes get stuck just watching him dance. He’s so, so good.

    AmandaRedondo Beach
  • I am a beginner in dance and wanted to try out ballroom-style dance. I found You Can Dance Studio on the internet and gave them a call. The receptionist helped me find the appropriate group class for me that suited my schedule and skill level. I went to the class and had a blast!! I wish my work schedule would allow me to go every night. Luckily my package of group classes can be used when I have the time. I even went out to the club and showed off my sweet Salsa moves. Their prices were great and the teachers made me laugh.
    Matter of fact – I’m going back tonight!
