"I think peerless is a good word to describe Liv's teaching. She creates an environment for her young dancers that is both supportive and rigorous. She nurtures them and gives them a sense of themselves and a confidence in the their bodies."
"Liv is very responsible with regard to the safety of my child and I trust her implicitly."
“I have a 6 years old and all she loves to do is ballet/tap. The class has been wonderful. The size is not too big and I feel each child gets the attention they need to perfect their craft. All the teachers are great and sweet with the kids. Ms. Jill, in particular, is very patient with the ballet participants. She always has a smile and is thorough with execution of tasks to be completed in class. She makes learning dance so fun.”
As a parent, it is not an easy task to pick a dance studio for our kids. On paper, every dance teacher around sounds amazing. The truth is that for the young dancers, the most important part is the connection they are building with the teacher.
Well, our teachers are patient, dedicated and nurturing. They share their love and passion for dance with their students.
To prove it to you, we invite every new student to take a free class. You'll see, our teachers are really awesome!
2- The Level of Education
If you already have a very passionate dancer on your hands, Liv'art is the perfect studio. We offer a very strong level of dance education for very one of our classes. We are extremely proud of our teachers. Their knowledge, technique and ability allow them to teach their class in a safe and proper way. Your children's well-being is our priority. Our teachers will give your dancer the best technique, without getting injured.
We also provide the unique opportunity for students that desire more and are prepared for a deeper commitment to become a part of our company. We hold auditions every year, right before our fall schedule starts.
We select dancers for their ability, attitude, motivation, and strength. Company members receive specialized training and unique performance opportunities throughout the year. Company provides dancers with a challenging yet enjoyable environment to improve their dance technique, gain new skills, and develop good character. We strive to teach dancers positive life skills including how to work towards a goal and how to strive for excellence as both an individual and as a team.
3- The Price
That's right! We are one of the cheapest dance studio in the San Fernando Valley (if not THE cheapest!). And we're not just talking tuition. Here's why:
Most studios charge per month, whether they hold classes or not. We only charge for the classes we actually hold.
If you miss a class, you can take a make-up class. Every dance studios will give you 30 days to take your make-ups. We allow you to do your make ups at anytime during the school year (as long as it is before our Spring Shows).
Also, most studios charge a participation fee to their recital and they charge a flat fee of about $100 per costume. We don't. No participation fee and costumes vary between $45 and $80. Nothing excessive!

This not only inspires her students, but creates a communinity of young artists who know what excellence in movement is and take great joy in achieving it."
"I was trying to find my daughter another dance studio since we moved to another area and Liv'art was highly recommended to me. Since the first time my daughter took a trial class, I knew this would be the place for her. Liv is highly experienced. The girls are friendly and the teachers teach proper technique.
My daughter is thriving!"
“The teachers' effort was seen during the recital. The children looked great on stage. The smaller kids’ performance were so cute and the older kids obviously practiced tirelessly to perform their best.”
“I will be returning over and over until my child graduates high school!.”
"My daughter has learned so much from Liv! About dance and about life. As a parent, I couldn't be happier!!!"
"Liv is a gem. She is much more than a gifted instructor; Liv is a mentor, friend and confidante to her students. As an instructor, she is able to zero in on each kids' strength and develop their skills."
“My daughter LOVED being in company. She loved her teachers, bonding with the girls, working together on dances, even being sore or tired and all that comes with it. The environment is motivating and positive! Communication with the parents is always clear and Liv always connects with the girls so easily. It was a great year of dance for her.”
