Yaona Dance Studio, vibrant and dynamic, is founded on June 1st, 2012 by Yao Na, who is a well-known dance instructor in the Bay Area. Our mission is to cultivate and foster Chinese culture in the incredibly diverse cultural communities in the Bay Area. We are committed to provide high quality dance training to students at all levels.

Our curriculum emphasizes on the development of strong techniques, the appreciation for various dance styles, the
discovery of the joy of movement and the learning of using dance as an outlet of emotional expression. By using your body to express emotions, it helps to integrate the mind and the body. Dancing is a wonderful form of exercise and helps maintaining one’s athleticism and fitness. The emotional and physical benefits include increased flexibility, better posture, toning and strengthening of muscles, and a increased sense of elegance in everyday movement.

Our strength is a stable instructing staff and curriculum, which is essential in the early years of dance training.

Love, patience and dependability are our philosophy. We strive to help our students to improve their self-esteem and confidence. By inspiring their art spirits and interests, we teach our students the value of hard work, discipline, perseverance and cooperation, which will benefit them for the rest of their lives regardless of the careers they choose.
