Stage 7 School of Dance

A leader in dance since 1973, Stage 7 is one of San Diego’s oldest and best-respected dance schools.

Operating as usual


Wednesday begins the 3rd cycle of Wiggle It Wednesdays with Disco Riot

This month we feature Joyce Lien Kushner .

Wiggle It Wednesdays are geared toward folks who want to get movin’ and groovin’ in a safe, fun, mindfully paced environment. With an intentional progression over the first 3 Wednesdays of the month, attendees can expect to build a solid contemporary modern dance foundation. The fourth Wednesday of the month is Movement Enthusiast – an all-levels improvisation practice grounded in creative movement, exploration, and playful community.

Wednesday #1: Intro
Wednesday #2: Beginner
Wednesday #3: Beginner +
Wednesday # 4: Movement Enthusiast


We’re taking Today, Friday, and Saturday off! Rest and Recovery time.


Ballet Class is suspended Friday through Saturday this week

We'd like to offer two large, well made, rolling mirrors to a good (dance) home, approx dimensions: 77H x 20W X 98L

These are custom made, very heavy, with excellent quality locking casters. We don't have a need for them now that we've got mirrors installed in the new Kearney Mesa studio location

Zoom ballet today at 4pm and again on Saturday, 10:30am.

Details below, dogs and cats welcome:


In preparation for todays Zoom Ballet at 4pm, consider the following:

What's different about online classes from Stage 7

No mirrors = trust your senses
No "front" = adapt to the space you're in
No life-sized person in front of you to follow = Look inside for ease, power, freedom, integrated function, fresh experiences of centuries-old practices.
No strict atmosphere = expect surprises, revel in them... then laugh!
Let the dancers in Stage 7 doing the exercises to be your guide you = Don't worry that we're not all in sync.... exactly....
Breathe = Let you whole body find its groooove

Reminder, we're on for virtual ballet at 4pm today and again at 5:30pm PST! Details at
