People are going ga ga for the "La La Land" moves at a dance studio near you.

"Starting next month, the Just Dance studio in Studio City will be premiering its 'La La Land' dance class," reports Michelle Dalton Tyree of Fashion Trends Daily.

TV shows like "Dancing with The Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance" already spawned a revived interest in ballroom dancing.

But the steps from "La La Land" are taking it to a new level.

"I've just heard that everyone wants to get into more classes," says Julz Tocker, co-owner of Just Dance. "All of these things have given us dancers businesses and careers."

He adds, "I think [the film's] opened everyone’s eyes to hopefully bringing back the old Hollywood dance like by Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers."

The film's choreography will be taught over a six-week intensive course.

"You can absolutely leave this feeling like a pro," says Tyree. "I know I was floating by the time I was done with my lesson."
