In 2005, Kathy Schultz started teaching dance lessons to eight students in her Shell Beach garage.
Now her business, more recently in Arroyo Grande, has grown to more than 300 students and expanded into a 7,600-square-foot facility in Grover Beach. The pair invested $200,000 in the new location, Schultz said. Parents dont want children to not have art in their lives, Schultz said, about how the school has flourished while arts instruction is being cut from public school offerings. Coastal Dance and Music Academy now has 29 part-time faculty and staff members, and has expanded offerings ranging from dance to music, voice and theater. Schultz said she started the school to create a supportive, noncompetitive atmosphere for students to dance. She has a masters degree in education, and Behnke has a bachelors degree in child development, and both have taught at the Academy of Dance in San Luis Obispo. It is home of the nonprofit group Coastal Chamber Youth Ballet Company, also founded by Schultz and Behnke, with artistic director Molly McKiernan.
