The Dance Program enhances our students’ self-expression and broadens their exposure to the performing arts.
Our thriving Dance Program keeps growing with currently four different classes per week. Our volunteer dance instructors, composed primarily of dance majors from UCI and SOY Alumni, prepare and teach choreographies in dance genres ranging from hip-hop and jazz to ballet. Students may also attend field trips related to dance, such as the Newport Harbor High School dance recital and events at the Barclay Theatre, UCI and other venues.
Students showcase their skills by performing throughout the year at our Annual Talent Show, Costa Mesa Arts in the Park, Orange County Fair, and our Dance Recital.
How You Can Volunteer to Help
We welcome volunteers or guest instructors who wish to share their love of dance. Sign up to teach any of these genres – African, Tahitian, Cultural, Lyrical, Modern and Ballet – or any other dance specialty you may have.
