WEBBY Dance company franchisee Amanda Alves, Stacy Diaz & Angie LaBarbera

LONG BEACH / COASTAL ORANGE COUNTY AREA FRANCHISEES

WEBBY Dance Company® LB/OC began its inaugural season in the fall of 2018 when long-time corporate employees Amanda Alves, Stacy Diaz, and Angie Labarbera purchased the franchise and started their WEBBY Dance Company® ownership adventure. The owners are not only extremely well versed in the business itself but are passionate about providing an outstanding experience for their students, parents, and schools.

Amanda Alves, Owner
Amanda fell in love with Dance at the age of 10…and she hasn’t stopped since! She was fortunate to have multiple professional performing opportunities and received her BFA in Dance Choreography and Performance from CSULB. After working for a big corporation for 6 months, she knew she could never live life that way…and that’s when she started teaching for WEBBY…and she never looked back! She has a wonderful hubby and 3 amazing kids, ages 10, 12 & 12. They all have very BIG personalities and her house is always very LOUD (this might have something to do with having 3 dogs)! Amanda spends most weeknights as the Taxi driver bringing her children to 3 different practices…and most weekends on some sort of field. She is incredibly blessed and thanks God every day for these treasures.

Stacy Diaz, Owner
Stacy was born in Long Beach and grew up in Orange County California. She is now the mother of two crazy and loving kiddos – 5 years & 9 years old. She has been married to a wonderful husband for 11 years. Stacy started teaching dance classes with WEBBY Dance Company® at the young age of 19 years old. The job came knocking on her door, surprising her with an endless amount of passion, love, and growth in her own life. Over the years of teaching, she has been truly blessed with countless smiles, laughter and accomplishments from all the tiny dancers that have crossed her path. She is grateful everyday to do what she loves! She absolutely loves seeing her students’ excitement to dance every week, and enriching their lives with inspiration and filling their hearts with so much passion!

Angie LaBarbera, Owner
Angie took her very first ballet class at 4 years old (the age of many of the children she gets to teach!) She believes that this age is just so precious and feels privileged to be a part of their growth and development at this stage in life. She continued her love of dance throughout her school years by being a part competitive dance teams. She graduated from California State University, Long Beach with a BA in Communication Studies, but in reality her two main “studies” were dance team and her future husband. After she graduated she went on to dance professionally with the LA Clippers. Angie started working with WEBBY shortly after and has truly been in love ever since! She married her husband in 2006 and earned the title of “Momma” for the first time in 2009 with the birth of her first daughter Sam and again in 2017 with their little Bella. She feels truly blessed to share her love of dance with her students and looks forward to developing relationships with all of the LB/OC WEBBY parents and schools as well.
