WHY TO CHOOSE OC DANCING 

If we asked you to tell us your memories about your favorite teacher growing up, we bet you would describe how they made you feel, how much they cared about you, the sense of excitement or discovery you felt, the safety to take chances and make mistakes, the confidence that you were valued as a human being, or their simple belief in you that made you reach your goals. OC Dancing Ballroom Studio is a studio where everybody feels at home and welcome. At our Irvine dance studio, all of our teachers reflect happiness, positive energy, honesty, and care. In your dance classes, you’ll meet new friends, share your passion, fulfill your dreams, and have fun. Come dance with us! We have a variety of ballroom dance classes for kids and adults in Orange County. 

WHY BALLROOM DANCING IS GREAT FOR CHILDREN 

 

Young children gain an incredible development by getting involved in ballroom dancing. This sport demands that the partners respect each other - their intelligence, individual skills and talent to learn. Boys and girls learn to respect members of the opposite sex and appreciate their skills and abilities as they form goal-oriented partnerships. As dance partners, they must work together to achieve a beautiful result. Kids involved in ballroom dance have much higher levels of achievement. When they get involved in competition, the benefits become even more prominent, as they learn to set goals, accept defeat gracefully, and build confidence in themselves and what they can accomplish. As they get older, children emphasize speed, technique, and amazing coordination. 

 

Ballroom dance is very structured and requires a tremendous amount of repetitive practice, something that most Asians are trained to do from a young age. Developing focus, respect to balance, and body awareness as we see in martial arts are similar natural advantages that can be achieved by DanceSport. 

 

Besides, Ballroom Dancing is very "Classy" Sport. And if you are looking for your child to be mannered and popular at any social party in the future - the choice to sign your children up for ballroom dance classes is absolutely right!

PRESIDENT OF CHAPMAN UNIVERSITY / JAMES DOTI

ORANGE, CA

I don’t know quite how to explain it, but that particular evening I performed the tango in a way I never did before or since. To put it mildly, it was an inspired performance. I exuded strength and passion. When the dance came to a climactic end, with me dramatically catching Oksana in my arms, I turned to see the chair of the accrediting team in some sort of emotionally-inspired catatonic stupor. After taking a few moments to regain her composure and catch her breath, she clutched at her heart and shouted, “BRAVO!”

Thank you so much for all the work OC Dancing have done with our students these last few years! Through the teaching OC dancing have taken our students with virtually no dance background and given them the confidence and ability to shine onstage as well as off. Your willingness to see the children succeed and your ability to interact harmoniously with our students truly made the dance program at the Russian School of Orange County (www.rusoc.com) a huge success.

IRVINE, CA

My daughter Eden started to work with OC Dancing almost a year ago. Eden is always excited and full of energy to go to dance classes because teachers manage to challenge its students and at the same time to make them feel proud of even small achievement. Oksana Kalinuka has an ability to create a close connection with studio students, ability to sense their dance needs, emotional contents and find the way to bring out their unique personalities into dancing. We value and appreciate Oksana’s work as the program director and as our friend, as we see how Eden’s love to dance is growing every day.

TATYANA PANKOVA

LAGUNA HILLS, CA

For almost 2 years we've been with Oksana and OC Dancing. So far we are very happy with the program and the results. From the attitude "I'm not sure if I want to do it..." Dima went to "I love it!!!"

Dancing helps him to get better control of his body, improves flexibility, plasticity and coordination. It also develops his sense of rhythm, social skills and increases self-confidence.

Dancing was very beneficial to Dima's other hobbies like swimming and ice-skating.

Thank you, Oksana, for putting so much effort into kids program and make the classes so interesting!

 

ALEX IVANOV

REDONDO BEACH, CA

Wonderful studio, with wonderful teachers who take the time with each individual student. We are happy to make the trek from Redondo Beach to Newport Beach (for over a year and counting) so our kids can get the attention & coaching they need to gain confidence in dancing and making new friends. This is a great skill for the kids to have as they grow up. As a dad who used to be the wallflower during school dances I'm very excited to see my son becoming confident on the dance floor, with the lights at their brightest. Able to easily make many new friends at any of the competitions they go to. He is becoming stronger and more motivated to be able to lift up his sister and twirl her around like the big boys. I'm very proud of my son & daughter and the progress they have made at OC Dancing. Did I mention we adults also made great friends there (what more could you want from a dance studio?).Add Testimonial here
