Pas de deux
The depth and quality of our dance instruction, paired with our connection to Festival Ballet Theatre, Orange County’s premier professional ballet company, places us in the unique position to offer comprehensive dance education. Our students can participate in a variety of performance opportunities: year-end student recital, studio holiday shows, competitions, and the chance to audition for a variety of Festival Ballet Theatre productions to showcase their skills.
Our reputation for excellence is widely known and frequently recognized. Many professional dancers from Orange County began their careers in our studios, nurtured by our teachers and programs. Whether for fun or to launch a lifelong vocation, we help students achieve their personal goals
