We are the space formerly known as Long Beach Dance Conditioning, and we're very proud of our heritage.

UP is about realizing our potential and allowing the mind-body connection to inform our lives, creating better health and well-being. We are a full-service, fully-equipped mindful movement exercise studio offering instruction in both the Pilates method and the GYROTONIC EXPANSION SYSTEM®.

We offer private instruction, group classes, workshops and teacher trainings.

UP Studio is also the home of owner Alicia Head's Inner Life of Ballet dance conditioning program, which explores an evolved approach to dance technique.

For new clients, please refer to the Getting Started page for studio information and policies.
