Pre-professional Ballet syllabus
A Broad & Dynamic Jazz program
Award-winning performance teams
  • My daughter who is now 7 has been a student of Francesca since age 2. We've followed Francesca from Manhattan Beach, to Westchester (where we live) down to Redondo where her studio is now located. Francesca is a fantastic teacher and a wonderful human being! We love her and are thankful to be a part of the Dance1 family.

Welcome to Dance 1!

We believe that learning to dance is a gift, a skill and a love that can enrich your life, no matter where you are in it. It is a wonderful way to nurture your body and mind, and can also fill your soul. We train all our students in the hopes that they will embrace dance as a lifelong joy.

Dance 1 is proud to be the home of award winning performing companies and Redondo Ballet. Thank you for stopping by.

  • Dance 1 is a rare gem among dance studios. They offer world class instruction in ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, and contemporary in a fun, loving, and warm environment. With Miss Francesca and Miss Donna, I have watched my son's confidence grow along with his love of dance. The smile on his face during and after class means everything to me!
