L.A. DanceMagic was founded in 1999 by husband-and-wife team Dave Carter and Jackie Sleight. The mission of the company is to provide a nurturing learning environment where students can feel safe to explore and challenge themselves with new movement styles without feeling intimidated. In addition, Carter and Sleight hope to inspire, motivate and teach positive values—both inside and outside of the competition arena.
LADM strives to provide the best possible family environment for dancers, teachers, directors and parents to enjoy their competition experience. “It has always been important to us to teach our students about commitment, integrity and keeping your word to others and to yourself,” Sleight says. “We want our students to know that having the discipline to work hard every day will make them better people and better performers. This kind of diligence has a high price, but the payoff is always higher.”
L.A. DanceMagic is dedicated to the education and motivation of young dancers and their teachers. To make every event as fulfilling as possible, we will present only the finest of training, staff and facilities. Through our knowledge of dance and love of children we will inspire commitment to excellence.
