Join us! We are happy to invite you to participate in our Certificate Program (MDCCP), a comprehensive training course open to US and foreign students at our internationally acclaimed facility.

The Millennium Dance Complex is known worldwide as the premiere studio of the commercial dance world and is widely referred to as a ‘the place where it all happens’. Although the studio’s A-list clientele and a faculty of the most sought after dancers and choreographers in the world has catapulted MILLENNIUM to a global brand, it still remains notably grounded, welcoming and dedicated to the highest level of service and instruction.

Become a part of the iconic world that is Millennium and the vibrant Los Angeles dance community. Join us for the experience of a lifetime as you train side by side with fellow dancers from across the globe for our first ever program receiving official documentation certificate of completion, an integral part of a dancer’s training that will benefit you wherever your dance path may lead you.

If you’re thinking about moving to Los Angeles to pursue your career as a professional dancer, or want to be apart of an intensive program, the certificate program is a great avenue. My role as Millennium’s student advisor is to not only inform students about classes and teachers, but give them one on one advice about the dance industry itself. Whether it is how to get an agent, find out about auditions, or simply go to dance events/performances and meet new people. I will be checking in on students to make sure they are getting the full benefits of the program by attending the classes that are best suited for them individually.
