Jenny Roman- Owner 

Jenny migrated from Johannesburg, South Africa with her Los Angeles native husband, Paul, almost 30 years ago.  Though Jenny studied ballet through her youth she decided to follow the well needed path of Economics.  Once arriving in Los Angeles, that all changed.  The love of dance could not be banished especially after spending numerous hours with a family member, who just so happened to own a dance store.

Jenny opened the first location for The Dance Store, in Santa Monica, CA in March 1997 and then proceeded to move to thriving Venice Beach.  The Dance Store is now centrally located in Los Angeles with a sister store opening in late 2022 - Fillmore, CA.   

Though Jenny has worked many long hours she believes it is the heart and the essence of the people she has met and worked with throughout the years that make The Dance Store what it is today.


Paul Roman, Owner

Paul happily grew up singing, dancing and acting in Los Angeles. He eventually found his path working behind the scenes in television. His career in television and love of the arts became the financial, physical and emotional support in the growth of The Dance Store throughout the decades. Though Paul hasn't been clicking his heels in the last 30 years, he did get to study with legends like Joe Tremaine and other notable teachers of the time. In the meantime, Paul has retired from television and is killing it as The Dance Store Maitre D.  Available upon request.
