The Place to Dance


San Diego Danceworks has been inspiring students to dance since 1990.  In 1993, Barbara Rinaldo took over as Director and moved the studio to its present location in the Mt. Soledad Business Park in North Clairemont.  The two dance studios have sprung floors for the safety of our dancer’s bodies.

Danceworks’ is a studio that welcomes families.  We have a viewing area for our children’s classes where siblings are welcome to come and play.

We perform throughout the year at community events such as Craft Fairs and Fall Festivals at area public schools. San Diego Danceworks in collaboration with Creative Stages of San Diego performs The Nutcracker annually in December.  Our year culminates in a performance at the San Diego County Fair and in an Annual Recital at the Creative Media Performing Arts Center.


We believe that dance as an art form develops the whole person. Our teachers are compassionate and knowledgeable, respecting individual body types and developmental needs. We encourage creativity and expression of feelings, giving students a confidence in their ability to think for themselves and bring their ideas into actions.
