San Pedro Ballet School offers the art of dance to interested individuals regardless of their circumstance. The studio is described as a second home for students as they learn different sets from instructors.

Romel Frometa, a dance instructor from Columbus, Ohio flew to Los Angeles with the task of choreographing their recent 10 day intensive program.

“I really love doing ballet. I really love dancing,” Frometa said. “At the same time, I’m learning from them about how I can do better as a teacher.”

The sets showcased were variations of the popular ballet “Sleeping Beauty,” ranging from duos to trios to large groups, showcasing dancers from various backgrounds.

With multiple performances crafted year-round, the studio emphasizes one major philosophy: anyone can dance.
