Studio A is entering its 21st year as a premier dance studio in the Bay Area. Established in 1998 under the direction of Aggie Eidson, Studio A has been voted Best of the East Bay by Diablo Magazine, as well as nominated for KRON 4 "Best of the Bay." We are dedicated to providing the highest quality dance instruction in a positive learning environment which recognizes and promotes the individuality of each dancer, encourages the development of creative expression, and fosters the self-esteem of each student.
Combo Classes (Ages 3-6)
The combo classes combine a creative blend of exercises, games, and activities designed to develop the students' motor skills and introduce them to the basics of jazz, tap, and ballet in a creative, fun and caring environment.
Intro Classes (Ages 5-6)
Our intro classes are genre-specific and offer students the opportunity to explore individual styles of dance at the beginner level. These classes include warm-up exercises, across the floor skills, and center floor combinations.
Student Division (Ages 7+)
Our student division offers classes in Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Contemporary, and Hip Hop at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels for students ages 7 through adult. These classes consist of warm-up exercises, across the floor progressions and center floor routines. Ballet classes focus on developing proper technique and placement through the use of barre, center, and across the floor exercises.
As a means for promoting dance for boys, we offer a scholarship program where boys receive a 2-for-1 class ratio. For every class they enroll in, boys may take an addition class at no extra charge.
Adult Division (Ages 18+)
Our adult division offers classes in Tap and Ballet, and is designed for students who wish to begin or continue dance training for health, self-enrichment, or recreation. Students are welcome to sign up on a monthly basis, or attend as a drop-in.
The Studio A Company is designed for the student who desires to study dance at a more serious and accelerated level. These artists are committed to training year-round and showcase their efforts at a variety of community events as well as competitions. Company is genre-specific and dancers are selected on an audition basis.
Here at Studio A, we are very proud of our 4,500 square foot facility. We have three large studios with floating marley and wood floors for our dancers' safety, along with state of the art sound systems. There are large observation windows in each studio for parents and family to watch class, and an expansive waiting area with a homework table for our students. Additionally, we have new viewing monitors in our lobby for your comfort and convenience! Our facility also includes dressing areas for the dancers' convenience where they can leave their bags, clothes, and shoes while in class. We have ample parking and a variety of restaurants close by. Feel free to stop by for a visit!
