Serving the Community since 1994



It is our philosophy that the experience of dance should be positive and rewarding while learning the discipline required for sincere integrity and an elevated self-esteem.  Each student should strive to reach their own personal goal: be it furthering their career to dance professionally or to develop poise and coordination on a recreational level.  We are committed and dedicated to helping students in achieving their dance goals while experiencing the varied music of traditional and contemporary composers.


Dancers will have the opportunity to receive high quality head shots and arabesque photos to be used for Professional Summer Intensive Auditions by At Play Photography for a fee.

June Performance

Our Annual Gala performance held at the Irvine Barclay Theatre in June highlights all the dancers in a professional theatre in lavish costumes.

Holiday Performance

Get ready for the end of the year performance and into the Holiday spirit with a beautiful showcase held at the Classical Dance Center studios.

Studio Opportunities

Throughout the year there will be many exciting opportunities for CDC dancers, including group discounts to professional ballet performances, dance field trips and many more.  Past seasons for our dancers included guesting in the Joffrey Ballet Nutcracker at the Music Center in LA, Master Classes with Paloma Herrera of American Ballet Theatre, and filming for the Reality series "Dance Moms".

Administration Fee


All students are required to pay an annual registration fee at the beginning of the school year. This fee is due one time per family per year. The CDC year is September thru August and your registration fee will be prorated if you join mid-year.

Makeup Classes
