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. Due to the way the syllabus is set up, most children and their parents just think it is all fun and games.

Along with learning basic terminology and specific movements geared toward a specific discipline, we take a developmental approach to teaching. We have realistic and age appropriate expectations for the children.
