Tap Feet

Our Story

Summerbella Dance Arts launched in September of 2018 and was excited to move into a 4500 square foot studio facility in Granite Bay, California.  Since then we have outgrown our space and will be moving into a brand new location that will give us 4 studios! We have instructors with decades of experience in the many dance disciplines offered at SDA.  We are looking forward to seeing a lot of familiar faces back in our studio for our 2023-2024 season.

We have seen tremendous growth in our students and studio this past session.  We have many exciting opportunities in the works this coming season to meet the potential of our expanding SDA Performance Companies and aspiring young dancers.

We strive to build confidence, appreciation for the arts, and a love of dance!
