The Millennium Dance Complex is a dance studio founded in 1992 located in the NOHO Arts District of Los Angeles. Dance Teacher magazine called it "...one of the top schools in the country" Millennium offers classes daily in jazz dance, hip-hop, ballet, tap, and contemporary. Performers such as Britney Spears, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Usher, Jennifer Lopez, Christina Aguilera, Kenny Ortega, P. Diddy, and Beyoncé have taken a class or had rehearsals at this studio.

In 1988 Millennium's directors, AnnMarie Hudson and Robert Baker, met in Frank Hatchett's jazz-funk class on Broadway in Manhattan, New York City. AnnMarie had sold her small New Jersey dance school and relocated to New York. Her first job was in management at the newly formed Broadway Dance Center, working for its founder, Richard Elner. Robert had moved to New York City from South Carolina to pursue a career in acting and dance. He was with the original cast of Dreamgirls on Broadway and studied screenwriting at New York University.

In 1991 they moved to Los Angeles where Robert began to work in the television industry as a producer and AnnMarie started Millennium under the name Moro Landis Studios because of the historical dance building which it occupied. In 1999, after producing television movies for NBC, ABC, and securing a producing deal at Warner Brothers television, Robert joined AnnMarie in moving the dance center to its present location. Shortly after, he switched his career goal to building and expanding Millennium with AnnMarie. Its faculty was composed of top working choreographers
