PERFORMERS

The Lab

The Lab Creative Arts Studio in West Covina is home to hundreds of kids who are guided through the most formative years of their lives through their training in dance. The main standard for the program is to help kids realize the power they have to create their own reality. They're taught to utilize their talents in multiple ways and understand that the way we apply ourselves in life is the key to unfolding all the things we desire. These kids have genuinely started from the bottom and have taken every single step along the way to reach their success. 

The Lab is proud to be home to the team of kids that were on Season 1 of NBC's World of Dance, home to the top varsity hip hop team in the world after winning Hip Hop International this year, and has won every hip hop competition they've entered in the last 3 years!
