The dance workshops and the Saturday show will be held at Boogiezone Utopia, 1951 W Carson St., Torrance, California (in Los Angeles county.) Carson Street itself is just a busy, suburban thoroughfare street. But the neighborhood (Old Town Torrance) behind the studio is nice with little streets filled with bakeries, restaurants and shops.

Flamenco West: The store is located at 316 Culver Blvd., Playa Del Rey, CA 90293. It's one block from the beach with lots of quaint restaurants and cafes.


Accommodations are not included.

However, there are many economical and lovely rentals via Airbnb and Vrbo in Old Town Torrance, which is walking distance to the studio.

Other options include:

  • *Hotels along Hawthorne Blvd. in Torrance, about 5 minute drive to studio. 
  • *Hotels in Redondo Beach, walking distance to the beach, about 12 minute drive to studio. You can choose either those near the Harbor or those along Pacific Coast Highway.


Transportation is not included.

I recommend you stay close to the studio and team up with others to Lyft on various excursions or rent a car.

If you're flying in, then go to LAX or Long Beach.
