About Us

Home For Dancers was founded by a dancer/choreographer who, just like you, left her home and her life to come to LA and take dance classes. At that time there was nothing like Home For Dancers. That’s why, after getting a work visa and 10 years of a successful dance career in LA (working for artists such as Michael Jackson, Usher, Black Eyed Peas , Gwen Stefani, Chris Brown, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber, Missy Elliott, Justin Timberlake, etc.), this same Dancer decided to give back to the dance community by building a « Home For Dancers » that has everything she wishes she had when she 1st came to LA:

• a home with an affordable bed.
• a home walking distance to Debbie Reynolds dance studio or a bicycle ride away from Millennium, mL studios and other dance studios, so your valuable money can be spent on dance classes rather than expensive housing, taxis and rental cars.

• a completely furnished and clean home.
• a home with complementary wifi internet access.
• a home that has utility included in the rent.
• a home with a washer and dryer.
• a home manager that can get you in touch with dance agents, auditions, immigration lawyers and give great dance and career advise.
• a home you could rent per week or per month.
• a home where you could choose your own type of bed or your own room.
• a home where all you need to bring is your suit case and a towel, because everything else is already there and complementary.
• a home you can share with others that are sharing the same dream.
• a home for Dancers… … like me, like YOU

Hey Maryss! I want to tell you in the name of Funkdation Crew that you really saved our lives not once, or twice, but three times! lol Home for Dancers was really our home for the time we lived there. Even if you weren’t around we felt that there was your essence all over the place! It is the cleanest, safest, most comfortable place we’ve ever been for a long time! Everything is where you would like it to be and everyone that stays there is so nice and amazing! We hope that more people could see how good Home for Dancers is because it really helped us in many ways!1
Thank you again Maryss for letting us stay at Home for Dancers!

I had always wanted to move to LA. Like alot of people especially dancers, it is my Dream!
I was very fortunate and blessed to come across ‘Maryss from Paris’. The girl who’s workshops I took in both Sydney and Singapore and used to watch on youtube endlessly for inspiration along with her crew ‘Beat freaks’ When I was planning to move to LA, January 2011 after finishing my contract in Singapore, I came across a notice on twitter for ‘Home for Dancers’. I saw a contact email and thought ‘why not’.. with no idea who owned it. I had an immediate response from what I saw was ‘Maryss’ and realised it was her who was running this business. ‘Home for Dancers’ sounded Amazing and I was super excited to go there. The place is in a great location and the house itself is cosy and comforting . If any Dancer is planning to come to LA on short term, i highly reccomend you stay there. It’s not expensive, it’s spacious and it’s right near Debbie Reynolds Studios. Maryss also helped me set up an interview with Lisa from G2talentagency who agreed to representing me!! Maryss also wrote me a letter  to help my work visa application. I am now proud and happy to say that I will coming back to LA to live with my 0-1 Visa approved and am looking forward to all my new adventures. Thank you Maryss for opening up your home to me and for making my LA experience memorable.

Hi Maryss, I would really like to thank you for putting us up this entire month, I have nothing but good, no, great memories of this place. I really hope « Home For Dancers » is going to stay around for a long time because I’ll definitely be back here and will make sure word gets out to dancers in Singapore that is coming to LA. I really can’t think of any suggestions to improve this place. I really believe that « a house is not a Home » and this is definitely a Home. I’m so comfortable here that I really don’t want to leave. Form the Bottom of my heart, THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR EVERYTHING!! WE <3 HOM FOR DANCERS!! & WE <3 YOU!! xoxo 

From your Norwegian friends, Jonathan Alolod, Harold Lagunilla and Andre Cruz
Hi Maryss, we don’t know when you’re coming back, so we’re writing this in case we’re not gonna see each other again. We really want to thank you for everything! You’re such a nice person, and we’re so grateful for everything you’ve done for us. Thank you for making our LA trip a success, it couldn’t have been this amazing without your help, and our wonderful roommates! Home For Dancers was a really nice place to stay, so near to Debbie Reynold’s dance studio, and the bus stop was so close, it saved us a lot of money! This place is not just a place we can live in, but a home! Thank you again for everything, I hope we can keep in touch! If you ever come to Norway, you have to contact us also! 😀 Thank you Maryss From Paris, and Home for Dancers!

Hola!!! I didn’t get to really tell you…. thank you sooooo much for everything !!! Home For Dancers is forever my number one place in LA! not just because I realized you were the one taking care of Home for Dancers and….  I’m a fan!!!!!! :p but also because the place was beyond what I was hoping for!!! I’ve had bad experience with hostels and other type of housing for dancers as the shared places were dirty and messy and you don’t always feel safe with people you don’t know, especially away from home… well… this is definitely my HOME away from home! it was so much fun, SO clean , so close to the dance studios (saved me a lot of dinero!) and most of all I love each and every dancers who stayed there at the same time as me <3 <3 <3 Thank you also soooo much for introducing me to  the dance agency and for the immigration lawyer referral, I will let you know as soon as I start my work visa process!!! Count on me to spread the words about Home for Dancers and let me know if there is anywhere I can write something about it on your website or something? I love HOME FOR DANCERS!!!!!!!!!!! thank you! thank you! thank you!  (see!!! it rhymes too!!!)
