Fantasy Dance School

15th Anniversary, March 22, 2018 .jpg

Is your child always dancing to the music at home?

Would you love for your child to socialize in a safe, family-friendly, fun, and creative environment?

A place where they'll be encouraged to express themselves through the art of music and dance?

You've found it!

Fantasy Dance was founded in 2002 by ballet master and choreographer Alla Harea/Kegulskiy. For over 20 years, Fantasy Dance School has provided various dance classes, including Ballet, Jazz, Folk, Contemporary, Ballroom, Hip-Hop, and children’s Choreography. Fantasy Dance School, awarded multiple awards, has been striving within the Bay Area, becoming a leading dance studio providing quality, passion, discipline, and a place to call home for generations of students.
