Conversations with the Inspiring La Toya Bellamy

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.
The ticket company I use TutuTix offer different articles to read with very important information.
