In San Diego, rare is a second-floor dance studio with big picture windows. (So NYC!) The bright and modern Pacific Arts Dance Center is the result of Del Mar Ballet’s recent merge with Royal Academy of Performing Arts. Pacific Arts now boasts twice the student following, plus respected instructors in adult dance, pre-professional ballet, hip-hop, tap, acro, and more. Did we mention there are music rooms and a wide balcony with sliding doors that doubles as an indoor-outdoor performance space? It’s literally taking the stuffiness out of classical ballet.

This pre-professional ballet studio is rooted in exceptional instruction!!! They encourage and inspire dancers to strive for excellence with passion and creativity. The focus is performance based rather than competition. This is what we were looking for! The young dancers learn proper technique while having fun with fantastic role models found in teachers and the older dancers. Our daughter loves working with the little ones and she continues to blossom at Del Mar Ballet. We are very grateful for this lovely space that our daughter is able to flourish. We are investing in so much more than dance!!!
There is a reason this ballet studio gets such great reviews. The training is EXCEPTIONAL!!!! If you want pre professional training and don't want dance studio drama and favortism, this is THE PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!
This is a fantastic studio with something for everyone. If your child is interested in ballet, be sure to check out their RAD (Royal Academy of Dance) program. It is world renowned, structured, grade level program with exams once a year. The kids love it and enjoy dancing with their friends year after year as they progress. The RAD instructors at PADC are amazing!
Thank you for an amazing presentation. Today I learned what it means to be passionate about dance. Your program makes a student not only understand the fundamentals of dance but to fall in love with the art of dance. Students are extremely lucky to be a part of your studio. Thank you.
