About Our Dance Studio in San Luis Obispo, CA

The Movement Arts Center is the place to experience dance on the Central Coast. Bright, airy and open, the space itself is inspiring, with 23-foot ceilings and over 3,000 square feet of unobstructed dance floor divided between three unique studios.

 

Not only is the space great for dancing, but both studios have observation windows so parents can watch class, witness the personal attention given to the students, and see the care our instructors put into ensuring each student progresses.

 

Both studios are available for rental. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
