Welcome to the Palos Verdes Performing Arts Conservatory. We believe in providing an environment where students continue to be appropriately challenged and build the beginnings of a life - long love of dance, music, and theatre. While performing arts programs a re being eliminated in many schools and communities, students have an even greater need to develop public speaking skills, an understanding of team building, confidence, character, and empathy.

Over the last 15 years, with the support of our community, we ha ve grown into the most comprehensive, professional performing arts training program in the South Bay. Every day we hear stories of students whose lives have been changed by the performing arts. Our growth as a program ca n be seen in hearing them hit that high - note they’ve been striving for, watching the perfection of a second - turn, or bringing a character t o life from the pages of a script. And it’s because of their relentless dedication to learning, along with our instructors’ deep passion for sharing the ir knowledge, that the Daily Breeze awarded us “Favorite Dance Studio” in the South Bay. It is our privilege to work with your young artists and to watch them grow and develop into successful individuals.

Our goal is to help each student develop a strong sense of self - worth, self - esteem, and self - confidence through exploration in the arts. Thank you for checking out our website. Please contact us if you have questions. Let’s get the magic flowing!
