Dance Classes That Make Your Soul Smile

A Robust Variety of Classes in North County San Diego

At San Elijo Dance And Music Academy we offer a variety of dance and music classes ranging from classical ballet to contemporary dance, from hip-hop to jazz and lyrical, ensuring that there is something for each child to enjoy. For ages 2 to 18 we have recreational and pre-professional classes tailored to every level of interest and ability. Our talented faculty members are experts in their fields and we care about helping each and every student reach their individual goals while gaining self confidence and a sense of achievement. At SEDMA we believe that when children are having fun and enjoying their surroundings, they will thrive in their artistic education while developing lifelong skills of confidence, poise, strength, and self-expression. We strive for artistic excellence and precision performance, always with love, compassion, and fun.

Youth Ballet Dance Classes

The Youth Ballet Levels each instruct a rewarding set of steps and techniques in the classical ballet cannon. As students progress through the levels, they have opportunities to perform and tell stories through dance. The dancers are encouraged to use their imaginations to develop artistry alongside their intermediate training, culminating in earning their first pointe shoes! All Youth Ballet classes participate in the Graduation Recital at California Center for the Arts Escondido on June 15-17, 2020.

  • This school is nothing like we have experienced….

    It is well managed and offers a wide range of classes. Best of all it gave my 3 children self confidence in their capabilities and the proper skills to perform at their recital.

  • I have been impressed with SEDMA!…

    Our daughter has been dancing with the studio for years, and she has blossomed into an excellent dancer. What impresses me the most? Excellent teachers, excellent opportunities to dance with professionals, and the care the owners and faculty put into knowing each family that is a part of the studio.

  • I danced here for 10 wonderful years….

    All the teachers here are dedicated to each student and helping them grow as a dancer. I loved every year I spent training at this studio. Every teacher has their own personal experience with dance, bringing inside knowledge and variety to each class. Overall, I recommend this studio to any dancer looking for a family of talented and inspiring dancers and teachers!
