Orange County Music and Dance (OCMD)
OC Music & Dance is a nonprofit community performing arts school, with a diverse student body of nearly 500 children, ranging in ages from 5 to 18. Through our scholarship endowment, we make the arts accessible to every child, regardless of their family’s ability to pay. Nearly 54% of our students are on scholarship, ranging from 15% to 90%. We have more than 40 instructors, most with advanced degrees and professional performance experience, including members of the Pacific Symphony.
Our mission is to nurture, inspire and empower the children of Orange County and beyond to achieve their dreams and provide a path for them to follow their passions.
Our vision is that every child, regardless of his or her financial circumstances, will have the opportunity to develop his or her innate talents, learning from the most accomplished professionals, encouraged by peers, family and community, and with access to instruments and facilities that enable each student to reach his or her personal best.
