Dance Design is a unique school for Orange County. Their young kids classes are filled with fun games and imagery to keep the kids engaged while teaching them dance skills that will be used as they get older. The classes have lots of moving, unlike many local studios that ask the kids to stand in lines and memorize feet positions for hours on end. Since their classes are so kid friendly, many of the kids continue to dance until high school, where they have the highest level dance classes in the area. There are also many beginner classes for the pre-teen or teen age beginner. The school owns all the recital costumes, and you only pay $22 to rent a costume, as opposed to $150 or more to buy a costume. And the recitals are short, so your little dancer will not be held captive in a back stage area for hours on end! Parents get 2 free tickets, a free DVD of the show and a calm, family oriented school. Dancers come for all over the region to take advantage of what DDS has to offer. We love it here!
