ABOUT US

The Sweat Spot is Ryan Heffington’s warm and welcoming dance studio in the heart of Silverlake. We’re a 2000 square foot space and a hub of the east side arts community. Our classes include ballet, contemporary, jazz, hip hop, yoga, Pilates and a variety of emerging dance styles specific to the 18 amazing teachers and choreographers who call The Sweat Spot home.

Most classes at The Sweat Spot are all levels and it’s totally common to see complete beginners and professional dancers sweating side by side.  We welcome new dancers, returning dancers, career dancers and anyone who wants to experience the joy of moving your body. Spend some time on our website, follow us on Instagram and Twitter @thesweatspot, or best of all, come and experience our amazing community for yourself.

If there's one thing in LA that defines a Sunday afternoon -- aside from farmers' markets -- it just might be Ryan Heffington's Sweaty Sundays dance class. 

The Huffington Post

…virtually an Eastside rite of passage, The Sweat Spot is always packed with bed-headed twenty-somethings dancing off the previous night’s bespoke cocktail binge—but all comers are welcome. 

Time Out Los Angeles

If you ever “just need to dance it out,” head to the Sweat Spot dance studio in Silver Lake, a bare-bones love letter to movement. 

LA Weekly

All that variety’s been enough for us to give up our gym memberships, put down the remote and cruise over to Silver Lake as often as possible to sweat it out.
