Creation Station Huntington Beach
Courses / Programs
Based in Fountain Valley, Orange County, CA, Creation Station Huntington Beach offers a wildly creative dance school concept for kids and teens which provides movement-based dance programs starting at age 18 months. Our creative teaching techniques combined with a carefully structured syllabus is what makes Creation Station the most popular dance and enrichment program for toddlers and young children on both coasts.

The non-competitive atmosphere, the use of hundreds of props and costumes, along with the small class size allows children to tap into their imagination in a way vastly different from most other dance schools. Creation Station students don't really realize they are learning traditional technique while in class.
