We are being forced out of our Dance Studio and NEED your help to build  A NEW DANCE HOME. PLEASE help us CONTINUE to change the lives of the youth of our community!!!

L.Y.T.E Dance Studio was started 2012 and every year our studio continues growing in the city of Santa Clarita to being recognized as the best and most positive dance studio around. L.Y.T.E stands for Live Your Truth Everyday and is an organization dedicated to spreading the passion, creativity, and joy, that comes with dance, to all our students. We do not just teach dance we have a passion to change lives. We teach self love, discipline, dedication, respect, hardwork and commitment. Our studio is like nothing you have ever seen or experienced and are making a name for our professional kids hip hop crew in the dance industry.

We are more than a dance studio, We are family. We have dedicated our lives to providing a safe, nurturing and loving enviroment for all dancers from beginners to professionals. We bring in the best choreographers in the business each day to only provide the very best training possible and have a deep passion to open unimaginable oppurtunities to these kids that they would never have.

We have been faced with countless unexpected challanges, in addition to being forced to move out of our studio that 80+ families call home. We are devistated about the loss but MORE excited about the new 3800sq foot home we have found!!! We have exhausted every possible option to try and afford all of the cost, fees etc on our own. We need your help to be able to continue to provide a home for our kids and start our new journey and hit the ground running in our new space as early as Dec 1 and no later than Jan 2, 2018. WE NEED YOUR HELP!

In addition to renovation and other moving costs, permits and fees we will need floors, mirrors and minor buildouts etc. PLEASE help us transition into our NEW home. ANYTHING will help from shares to fiscal contributions to donating your time for installing floors, our video cameras, helping paint or minor wall build outs. 100% of all proceeds will go into providing a new and improved state of the art home/professional facility for all of our kids.

In additon to financial contributions, LYTE seeks the following in-kind items:
Front desk
Retail display desk
18 passanger van
shelving for retail
Wall decals
Tumbling Mats
Any work out items
Theatre lighting equipment
track lighting for dance rooms
Flooring of any kind
*These items can be used*

We need your help.


"Hard work...........Dedication.............Commitment... LYTE.. I CAN"

Bridging the gap: Dance should be a positive, community/career-building activity that not only promotes self confidence and love but brings people together and teaches compassion, love and support. It doesn't matter what you look like or have experience in, dance is a universal language everyone should have access to. L.Y.T.E will is a safe haven for anyone and everyone who wants to learn about dance.

Dedication/Commitment: After every class and rehearsal we all chant Hard work, Dedication, Commitment, LYTE ...I Can. Our Studio strives daily to spread positivity and offer core values through dance that build our community from the inside out.

Promoting Transparency

This Studio is for our community by the community so EVERY cent contributed will be going into every aspect of the studio (construction and maintenance. We will not pocket any of the money. To share where the money will be distributed to see our vision come to life there is a break down listed below.

From the Founder Tawnya McCoy and Owners William and Tawnya Mccoy!
