Independence Dance Company

Founded 2010

Independence Dance Company
(IDC) was created to give dedicated young dancers a professional training program. Offering classes in many styles of dance including ballet, jazz, tap, contemporary, and hip hop, IDC wants to broaden its dancers knowledge and understanding of movement and choreography to prepare them for the diverse world of professional dance.

Understanding the need for flexibility of training for young dancers, we are unique in offering drop-in classes. So dancers can come train when their schedules allow them to--instead of being forced into monthly commitments. We also are not a recital-based studio. Our classes are for training--not for learning one dance that is only performed once a year. We have performance opportunities throughout the year and an annual showcase.

IDC has a world-class faculty of professional dancers. IDC faculty has been seen in films, commercials and TV shows such as So You Think You Can Dance, Dancing with the Stars and more! We are committed to having the industry's top choreographers come in an work with our company members.

IDC company members train and rehearse for 9-25 hours a week with the company, and we encourage dancers to take additional classes at many of the amazing local studios in the Los Angeles area. Being located right in the heart of the dance industry, many of our company members are represented by top dance agencies and often have the opportunity to audition and work on professional productions.

Making sure our dancers are well-rounded people is also important. Most of our company members are academic honor students, and are involved in outside activities including show choir, cheerleading, Girl Scouts, singing, acting, ice-skaing, gymnastics and more!
