Established June 2006, As a sole proprietorship Studio One was originally opened at its Mangrove location and run for three years before relocating and joining Chico’s largest dance center. After two great years at Chico Creek Dance Centre, Studio One Ballroom moved to our new location in downtown Chico across from Shubert’s Ice Cream. We are proud to offer group classes, private lessons, and social dances in the areas of Swing, Latin, and Ballroom.

Currently West Coast Swing is the most popular dance that is offered at Studio One. We have many students who are working on advancing their dancing and skills through various classes, practice hours, and social dances. West Coast Swing has a competitive circuit that many of our dancers have successfully entered. They enter at a novice level and through earning points at various competitions work their way up the ranks. We are proud to have upwards of 30 dancers in Chico that compete at nationwide conventions.
