Creation Station Studio City (CSSC) is the premier dance studio for children in the San Fernando Valley. Classes have been designed to fit the developmental and emotional stages that are appropriate for each age group. We believe in teaching the whole child and giving them instruction that appeals to all types of learning. Dance is at the core of our curriculum but the skills learned in the classroom should carry our students beyond dance and into real life.
