CORE Dance was founded by Leslie Baumberger, Stacy Millard, Rose Patti and Zheila Pouraghabagher in August of 2010 when American Dance closed its doors after 38 years of providing young dancers a place to train. In 2018, Alexa Von Der Hoff took over the leadership role, as Studio Owner, taking the customer experience to the next level.
Since opening in 2010, over 1,000 students have experienced a positive, enriched dance experience in CORE’s classrooms. The dance environment is clean, modern and safe.
CORE Dance offers something for every interested dancer, all ages, styles and commitment levels. In addition to the ballet based dance training CORE offers, we also offer performance opportunities for beginners through advanced levels, starting at age 2 through adults. CORE Dance currently has the largest and most diverse performing groups on the entire Central Coast.
Our mission is to inspire the community to dance!
