Welcome to Tustin Dance Center

Where dancers of all ages can...

Dance! To Their Heart's Delight

Tustin Dance Center has proudly served dancers from Tustin and throughout Orange County for over 45 years.

We are privileged to be able to advance the dance skills of our dance students who have been with us for many years as well as those who joined us in the last couple of years, and we are always excited to welcome and work with our newest students.

We strive to stay connected with our students and families. Please give us a call at 714.544.3072 to talk about setting and achieving your dance goals, or how to start dancing with us! You may also click on the button below to speak with Ms. Kelly, owner and director of TDC, for a 1:1 conversation about these or other topics.

We operate with safety guidelines in place - see our COVID-19 Checklist for more information. We continue to follow those guidelines to ensure the safety of our dancers, teachers, front desk team and other guests.

Kindermusik Classes

Our program begins at newborn with our research-based, award winning Kindermusik classes specializing in child development. Activities enhance language and literacy skills, cognitive skills, and social emotional development, while providing the perfect foundation for formal music and dance lessons. Upon graduating from the Kindermusik program at age 7, students can read and play several songs on the Glockenspiel, the Dulcimer, and the Recorder.

Dance Classes

Toddler, Youth and Adult programs are offered in Mommy and Me, Youth Combo TBT, Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Contemporary, Hip-Hop, Urban Motion, On Fire Fit, and Pilates classes. Our talented and professional teaching staff is dedicated to providing dancers of all ages and abilities with the highest level of technique in a positive, family-friendly environment. Every dancer who walks through our doors is given the opportunity to advance their individual skills and meet their individual goals. 

Performing Groups

If performing is your thing, we offer several exciting events throughout the year. Our annual June Recital, the Nutcracker Ballet, and many community service shows keep us on our toes and involved in our wonderful community. For the serious dancer, our performing groups provide the opportunity to set goals and perfect their skills while competing as a team or individually. Several of our dancers compete in the prestigious YAGP International Ballet competition, and have been accepted to train over the summer months at ballet programs such as the Joffrey Ballet, the American Ballet Theatre, Alvin Ailey, and Ballet West.

Other Services

Further, we offer private dance lessons or group dance lessons with our talented instructors. Our instructors will also choreograph a piece for a personal event or competition. We also offer ballerina and themed birthday parties. Finally, we frequently rent the studio to groups or individuals who want to work on choreography with a TDC instructor or their own choreographer.

From newborn to adult, beginning to advanced, recreational to career-bound, we value the opportunity to work with you!
