Dance Theatre of Orange and Encore Adult Dance Studio

Step into the heart of our joyful, family-run dance school, Dance Theatre of Orange, where passion for dance flows through generations. Founded by Marianne in 2000, her daughter Isabella is now her partner, sharing the same passion.

Our focus is on celebrating the pure joy of dance while nurturing the unique progress of each student. We embrace a non-competitive spirit, cheering our fellow dancers to shine in every class.

For youngest dancers in Pre-school Wonderland, the journey begins at age 3 with "Dance With Me" classes, fostering strength, balance, and listening skills alongside a loved one. From there, they explore "Dance Adventures," where every class unveils exciting new themes, from the deep sea to outer space, with the added delight of oh-so-special tap shoes. Kindergarten-aged dancers embark on their ballet and tap syllabus journey.

Our Emerging Artists, aged 6-18, follow internationally recognized dance syllabuses (Royal Academy of Dance – RAD – and Imperial Society of Teachers of Dancing – ISTD), opening the stage for performances in our highly anticipated annual concert and optional annual exams.

Enter the world of Encore Adult Dance Studio, our newest and most exciting offering, launched in October 2023. Designed for adults of all levels, from beginners to advanced dancers, even new mums looking for postpartum exercise. We warmly welcome adults who've always dreamt of dancing, as well as those returning to their passion after life's detours. Join us in discovering the joy of dance!
