EDGE Performing Arts Center in Hollywood, CA, is one of L.A.'s finest professional dance studios, known worldwide for excellence as a training center for commercial dance. The studio provides instruction in a wide range of styles, from basic to professional levels, and is particularly strong in jazz. EDGE PAC offers perhaps the greatest focus on jazz and classical technique out of Los Angeles' top four professional dance industry studios, and also has outstanding hip-hop classes. Numerous top industry professionals teach at EDGE.
Schedule changes are frequent at top studios, due to the busy professional lives of the instructors, so always call to confirm your class! Planned subs at EDGE are posted both on a whiteboard above the front desk and on the EDGE PAC Daily Subs and Updates page.
We recommend bringing exact change for your class price if possible (as of this writing, a single drop-in class costs $13). Dancers who require change need to return to the front desk after class to pick it up.
If you're unsure whether a class is appropriate for you, you may be able to observe it. Some of EDGE's dance studios have large observation windows with visitor seating.
Located in the Television Center building, EDGE PAC shares a large free parking lot one block south of the studio on Cole Ave. The blue-painted spaces are for EDGE visitors. If it's your first time visiting, be sure to tell the attendant at the entrance (to avoid a written warning). Request a parking pass at EDGE's front desk when you sign in and pay for your class. On future visits, keep the pass hanging from your rearview mirror while in the lot.
There's also free street parking nearby, some with time limits and some without.
