Today we’d like to introduce you to La Toya Bellamy.
La Toya, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
When I was 15, I told myself one day, I would have my own studio and 5 years ago, God blessed me with a 500-sq. foot space. I opened my studio and had one student the whole year and boy, did I want to give up but God told me to keep going and 2 years ago, we moved into a 2500 sq.ft. space and have 100 students. We are the only dance studio in the city of Inglewood. I thank God everyday.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road. The first year, I had one student so it requires me to have a job to pay for the rent of my space. It was challenging because I had to dedicate all my time to growing my business. Every summer and holiday, student take a leave of absence or try other sports, so I have to be sure to have camps or be sure there was another source of income to cover all the bills. I would say never give up on your dream.
what should we know about Dancer 4 Life, Dance Studio Inglewood CA? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
Dancer 4 Life offers dance classes for ages 2 years to adults. Ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop and more are offered to all. We have two recitals a year and we perform at community events. What sets us apart is that we are a family. The studio is a dance home for our dance families. I have great patience and love for what I do and it shows.
It would be great to hear about any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve used and would recommend to others.
