San Diego’s Finest Dance Studio!

As a dance instructor I spend a lot of time in the studio. Dance Headquarters is simply the best studio in San Diego. It's breathtakingly beautiful, incredibly spacious and laid out perfectly for private lessons, group classes and private room rentals. Janae is literally a lifesaver managing the studio by helping the instructors with scheduling and greeting the students and answering all their questions when they arrive. Finally, a huge Thank You to Shawn Torgerson for his vision and hard work developing and building San Diego's finest dance studio!
