     About Preston Li

Prior to opening his own studio, Preston was appointed as a co-artistic director in a South Bay-area school where he taught, choreographed and directed for 7 years; rehearsed and coached at a regional company that was a member of the Regional Dance Festival, taking them to the highest “Honors” status within the region; and taught at various schools throughout the greater L.A., San Gabriel Valley and South Bay regions.

Preston’s notable students include coaching Winter Olympics figure skaters and a ballet dancer competing in the Beijing International Ballet Competition in China. He also coaches dancers in a variety of disciplines in addition to ballet including ballroom dancing, figure skating, contemporary and lyrical among others.


A graduate of the prestigious Beijing Dance Academy, Preston Li was one of only 15 boys from across the country to attend China’s leading dance institution. He is trained in classical Russian and RAD ballet styles and is a trained choreographer and director.

 Preston won gold and silver medals in ballet competitions during his time in China and was selected as one of only 4 top dancers to perform in the “Cats” & “West Side Story” musicals in Tokyo, Japan. After the musicals’ successful runs, Preston received a full scholarship to Princeton Ballet, in New Jersey, USA. He also held principal positions with Joffrey II, Los Angeles Classical Ballet, Ballet MET and other notable dance companies throughout the U.S. where he danced a variety of ballet repertoire including Don Quixote, Swan Lake, Le Corsaire, and Sleeping Beauty.
