Santa Barbara Dance Arts celebrates more than two decades of community, artistry, and the core belief that dance lessons teach life lessons. Under the direction of Alana Tillim, Dance Arts promises to provide a safe and healthy place for emerging and pre-professional artists.

Santa Barbara Dance Arts is a full-service studio that offers recreational and pre-professional classes for ages 2-72 (we want that number to keep growing!). They can help with wedding dance lessons, flash mobs, and event entertainment. They rent studio space for artists, events, and family friendly parties or they can be the host! Their popular birthday parties are not limited to kids, they can give your bachelorette party or next girls weekend a twist.

Santa Barbara Dance Arts has proudly partnered with the non-profit Arts Mentorship Program and their relationship allows them to bring the healing gift of dance to their community's most vulnerable populations through scholarships and programs. Together, they help local artist find affordable rehearsal space in order to maintain Santa Barbara's thriving arts culture. More than this, they are a hub for the arts community to collaborate and create.
