8 Count has National Award Winning Competitive Dance Teams.  There are 13 teams at the Performance & Company levels.  These teams compete both regionally and nationally.  Team auditions are held

every summer.  

8 Count is thrilled to have a state-of-the-art studio! Our new studio has four large dance rooms with sprung Harlequin dance floors and "marley" overlays. These sprung dance floors absorb shock, enhance performance, and greatly reduce injuries. Our studio also has a music room for vocal & piano lessons, two waiting areas, and two bathrooms.  Join us at 10662 W. Pico Blvd.  We're located just East of Overland near the Westside Pavilion on the South side of the street. 

We hope to dance with you soon!!!
