Orange County Dance Center offers children’s programs that include genre-specific kids’ dance classes in ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, and hip hop. Older children with sufficient training and experience may also be eligible for pre-pointe, pointe, and variations classes.
Classes work on technique throughout the year as well as learn choreography for group dances. Students have the opportunity to display their learning at our annual June Show Recital.
Students are also given the opportunity to join performing groups to learn more advanced choreography and performance styles, and compete with other local studios.
Enrollment in our kids’ dance classes is capped at a maximum number for optimal learning. If you’re in Huntington Beach or Orange County, CA, please contact the Orange County Dance Center office at 714-846-0215 or email us at [email protected] to ask about our kids’ dance classes availability for your child based on his/her age and experience. We also offer adult dance and mommy and me classes, so we’ve got something for all age groups!
