The Dance Hub
The Opening of our Community Space
For over ten years, American Dance and Music pioneered a dream for a beautiful space dedicated to dance and theater in Santa Barbara. With the opening of The Dance Hub, AD&M has achieved a major milestone. After almost a year of operation, we are pleased to announce our Official Grand Opening.
American Dance & Music invites you to join us for our open house weekend to sample or observe a variety of adult classes. Find one or two that are right for you! Full schedule is below.
Delicious refreshments will be served all weekend. Current and new students will receive discounts on the purchase of AD&M classes or courses and two complimentary tickets to enter a drawing for free classes. Children between the ages of 2-12 and their families are invited on Sunday from 3:00-5:00 to sample classes for our new Kids Dance Program.

Angelita Eller and Hula Anyone are dedicated to the preservation of Hawaiian hula and Tahitian dance traditions. We provide a nurturing platform for ages 4-84 years old to learn traditional dance forms. Hula Anyone is a consistent source of positive energy and a forum for the constant requests to create hula for different languages, origins and genres as well as to personalize hula based on occasion. The fluid, adaptive nature of Hula Anyone has helped to keep all the dances original, dynamic and fresh.
Pacific Action Dance Theater was founded and is directed by flamenco dancer Ana Galindo. The company will perform a Sevillanas to live music.
