My older daughter has been going to On Your Toes dance studio for the last 4 plus years and she absolutely loves it. She has grown tremendously in her dance techniques as well as her self confidence that comes with being a dancer. The owner is professional, strict, but you can tell she loves what she do. I enjoy the end of year recitals, the shows are well put together. My second daughter now dances at OYT and she looks forward to dance class. I would highly recommend this dance studio.

Update 1/8/2023. Still the best dance studio in town. My girls continue to grow in their skills and confidence.

An amazing dance school with exceptional instruction!

My daughter started dancing at this studio when she was merely 3 years old and it has become our permanent dance home for the past six years. In these 6 years, she has gone from prancing around in a tutu as a toddler to taking every dance subject currently available at the studio and being part of the school's dance company. She has had the privilege to learn from amazing dance instructors with vast experience in the Performing Arts who have molded her into a beautiful, strong and graceful dancer . In addition to dance, she has also received vocal instruction and theater classes for two years. At this school, the goal is to teach students in all aspects of the performing arts and the teachers truly teach them proper technique. Additionally, the pricing is unbeatable. Prices are well below the average rate at other studios.

This more than just your typical dance school., it is a second home and a close-knit family!

I was so happy to find this dance studio tucked away by the Tamarac library. My daughter loves it. She has made so many friends her. The instructors are professional but also so sweet with the little dancers. I feel that for the price it is an amazing value.

My daughter Nashla started dancing at this studio when she was 2 years old and it has become permanent dance for the last two years. She has had the privilege to learn from amazing dancers and instructor mrs. Alina Peña.
I use this class a physical therapy for her because she was a preemie baby and had a lot to catch up for kids at her age. After this two years, I'm so proud of her learning at the dance school as well as her physical movements improvement. Mrs. Alina is a unbelievable teacher and passionate on what she does to the point that my daugther can't wait to saturdays morning to go to her class. The most memorable moment for me was her first recital, we're I saw her performing beautifuly. Additionally, the pricing is unbeatable. Prices are well below the average rate at other studios and the best part is they treat the kids as family...

Thanks you Mrs. Alina Peña and all your staff for such wonderful academy and for being so passionate on what you do.

My daughter has been dancing here for over 4 years and loves it. We love the classic ballet instruction and the structure. Many dance places have much too “mature” choreography for little ones and require heavy makeup/false lashes at too early of an age. I appreciate the tasteful styles provided here and I LOVE seeing the growth my daughter has shown.

Program & Pricing FAQs

What should my child wear to dance class?

Comfortable dancewear is recommended, along with appropriate shoes for the chosen dance style. Specific dress codes may vary by class, so we provide guidelines upon enrollment. Proper attire helps ensure a safe and effective dance experience.

Are there any performance opportunities for students?

Yes! On Your Toes Dance Academy believes in providing performance opportunities for students to showcase their talents. We organize recitals, showcases, and may participate in local events or competitions, offering a chance for students to shine on stage.

Are there opportunities for advanced students or those interested in competitive dance?

Absolutely. We offer advanced classes for students looking to refine their skills, and we have competitive dance programs for those interested in a more intensive and performance-focused experience. Speak to our instructors to explore these options.

What safety measures are in place, especially considering current circumstances?

The safety of our students is our top priority. We have implemented rigorous cleaning protocols, limited class sizes to allow for social distancing, and follow all recommended health guidelines. Additionally, we may offer virtual or hybrid classes for those who prefer to dance from home.

How can I get involved as a parent or guardian?

Parents and guardians are encouraged to be involved by attending performances, supporting fundraisers, and participating in parent meetings. We value the partnership between parents and our dance school community.

What other options than ‘studio’ training are there?

While ‘at home’ training is a premium service, it can be the most pragmatic and beneficial environment in which to develop depending on your situation. The savings on time from driving can be a benefit that offsets the cost of the service. So, yes, it is available.

Online/digital/remote training is becoming a large of our business due to the high time and stress demand of CA traffic as well as promoting a more independent application of our coaching. As well, this is how we work with the rest of you folks who live outside of the Orange County area. Check out the digital training page under the ‘services’ tab!

Really the most effective approach is to mix these (hybrid approach). There are certain elements that are better done in the studio and remote training makes you independent and keeps you accountable. For some, home sessions can help with knowing how to train in your own environment with your own resources….as well as staying out of traffic!
