Named after the room number where Stephanie began her first dance program in Alameda back in 2011, Studio 505 offers a dance class experience unlike any other in the San Francisco Bay Area. We don't just offer dance and fitness instruction, we teach students how to tap into their creative potential and use it to explore dance styles fully with the mind, body, and soul. Students learn to be versatile and strong in their dance technique. They are also given the unique opportunity to create and grow as artists with our choreography workshops. Students can then share their creative work with the community in performance opportunities throughout the year. At Studio 505 we don't just teach students how to dance steps, we guide artists, support creators, innovators, and movement lovers on their journey towards their highest potential.
We treat our students as artists with a unique and valuable perspective.
Studio 505 cares about the whole student. We strive to guide students along their journey in self-expression. We aim to help students find their passion by teaching to their mind and soul in addition to technical ability. We teach our students not just to be great dance technicians and performers, but also how to discover their gifts, nurture those gifts, find confidence in their uniqueness, and share it with the world.
We have classes for everyone—adults, children, and teens. We have beginning, intermediate, advanced and open level classes, so that students of every age and experience level will learn and grow.
