Sherman Oaks Dance Academy specializes in children's dance focusing on proper dance technique and curriculum in a creative and safe environment. Students are offered a variety of class options from classical ballet, jazz, contemporary, tap and hip-hip to musical theatre and ballroom. While following strong fundamentals when learning a dance, students are encouraged to express themselves through their movement and to explore their own artistry. We believe that children who dance develop confidence and an appreciation towards dedication that they will continue to carry with them throughout their lives.

The South Bay Children's Choir (SBCC) is a select group of talented young singers sponsored by El Camino College (ECC) in Torrance, California. Comprised of over 125 boys and girls ranging in age from 7 to 17, these young singers come from over 25 communities in the Los Angeles and South Bay areas, from Long Beach to the south and Santa Monica to the north. Co-founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Diane Simons and the late Dr. Jane Hardester, the choir performs annually in the Marsee Auditorium at El Camino College, and has appeared at many other venues throughout the southland, including Royce Hall at UCLA, the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in the Los Angeles Music Center, Segerstrom Hall in Orange County, and the Armstrong Theater in Torrance.  Artistic Director Simons earned her Bachelor of Arts Degree in Music at UCLA and has conducted choirs at both high school and elementary school levels, as well as teaching voice. She presents workshops both for singers and for teachers and has been active as musical director for community theater. She is an active member of the American Choral Directors Association, and is serving a six-year term on the Western Division Board as representative of Children and Youth Choirs.

altOriginally the Warner Brothers Western Theater when it first opened in 1931, the Wiltern Theatre reopened as such a few years later. The theater was sold in 1956, and by the late 1970s the building had fallen into disrepair—a local group of historic preservationists saved the building from demolition on two occassionas.

Following several years of renovations, the theater reopened to the public in 1985. Today, the Wiltern hosts live performances and concerts, as well as televised events and has served as a location for several feature films.

Jan, 2015 – Musical Wunderkind Choiralt

The Musical Wunderkind – Choir was a wonderful experience for the kids.  Most of them had never seen an entire Nutcracker production, and the ones who had, had never seen a professional production.  It was excellent. At the time you and I talked about it, I didn't really fully appreciate the gift it was to have the kids see it. I do now, and thank you for that. Their parents were also thrilled with the performance and very proud of our kids. So I thank you, and the Moscow Ballet, for this opportunity.  It is a good collaboration to offer young people.
