Performance Team Auditions

Interested in taking your dancing to the next level? Our performance teams offer students a chance to accelerate their training and compete on stage with their friends. Students that participate on performance teams will be asked to commit for a full year and push their training by adding required classes to their schedule. Being on a team is both a fun and rewarding experience. 

If your dancer would like to join a team, please keep an eye out for email announcements, social media posts, or this website. Auditions will take place in May. We will be posting exact audition dates soon. Kids as young as 5, may join.

Dance Teachers

Who We Are

PCPA is a creative and performing arts program that requires dancers to be both artists and athletes. Our ultimate goal is to instill dance intensity and drive inspired by much more than trophies and sequins. We believe in building strong fundamentals, technique, and discipline through dance training and performance experience. You can count on building a respect and love for dance whether you are training for personal or professional goals. 

What We Offer

PCPA offers dance classes for kids ages 5 and up. We are the only studio in San Mateo that offers all of the following styles — Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Lyrical, Contemporary, Acro, and more.

Performance teams are available for those that wish to fast track their training. Technique classes, workshops, and yearly intensives are also available. We have classes for all ages and levels.

Why Choose Dance?

Dance is a unique sport. It requires the individual to be both an artist and an athlete. Strength, flexibility, and motor skill development are just some of the physical benefits. Dance also has a lot of mental and social benefits as well. Learning to be part of a group, working as a team, communication, and trust are built in classes. Dance is also ideal for setting individual goals. Watching our students gain confidence in themselves and their abilities is a fulfilling thing to see.

Our Dance Studio

We have a 7000 square foot space with 4 dance rooms and 2 lobbies. With the exception of our toddler room (carpeted) all our studios have mirrors and sprung floors for the safety of our dancers. Our space is on the 2nd floor away from the traffic on El Camino.
