We wanted to showcase some of the heart warming emails and feedback we received from parents in regards to their and their child(ren)’s experience with OC Dance Productions.

The community makes up who we are and we couldn’t teach dance, cheer, and fitness classes and host recitals and events without you!

Hi Taylor, Wanted to say thank you – the recital was so great – you did a great job prepping the girls – all of the funny moments made the night too :)

Megan-San Clemente, CA

Thank you so much, Miss Taylor! My daughter had a wonderful first recital experience, and I mostly credit you for that!

Howard Family-Orange, CA

Thank you so much! It was such a great experience and I am signing up Paige for next session as we speak! You are a great teacher and it really showed with how well the girls did. They have so much fun in your class:) We had a little thank you that we wanted to give you, but didn’t have a chance recital night. I took a picture of the card Paige made you:) I included a few pics of Paige from her recital too. All of the costumes were just too fun! We want to wish you a very Merry Christmas and we will see you in January! (to Miss Taylor)

My 10 year old daughter has taken ballet classes with Miss Amanda N. for about a year and has completely improved with her technique, posture, and confidence. Miss Amanda’s strong background in dance shows through and her guidance has helped my daughter build a greater interest in dance. She has since wanted to try other dance types and classes with Dance the Magic’s Parade at Disneyland Performer Class being one of her goals. The investment in this program is definitely worth your child’s experience! Throughout the program, Miss Amanda F. worked diligently and energetically making the final performance a HUGE success! Seeing all the kids dance at Disneyland dancing in Dance the Magic’s Holiday Spectacular Parade during Christmas time was truly a dream come true. My daughter was so overjoyed afterwards, telling me countless times how incredible happy and what a magical time the whole day was. THANK YOU to OCDP, Miss Amanda N., Miss Amanda F., and Miss Kim for their commitment, dedication, preparation, detail, and hard work they invest in our children. OCDP is both professional and personal making it a studio worthy dance company that parents can be proud to send our dancers!

A heartfelt story from one of our instructors, Ms. Melissa regarding our recent Holiday Recital:
“Had lunch in Huntington Beach today, when the manager of the restaurant came up to me and asked if I was a dance teacher, he went on to tell me how he came to his daughters recital a couple weeks ago and recognized me from the show. He said the show amazing and that couldn’t believe that such young children could dance so well. At the end of lunch he brought our bill and comped one of our meals, saying thank for all we do for his daughter!!!! What, so cool!!!”

OC Dance Productions is literally a godsend! I have taken their Yoga Booty Ballet class for over 6 years, which is in of itself a huge testimony, because I am very easily bored. But Kim Esmond consistently delivers a program that is both challenging enough to help me meet my health goals and fun and entertaining- so I actually look forward to working out! The class is part workout, part therapy, with “on the radio now” playlists and fun doable choreography that makes even me feel like a dancer. Not only do I look great after class, I’m in a better mood all week long. I’ve also experienced a number of the other classes OC Dance Production offers, including kids classes for my boys, and they all deliver the same great experience with instructors that are high energy and real. I can’t imagine my life without them!:)

My son took Miss Care’n’s “All in One” class in Irvine this summer and is going to be taking another class with her this fall. I would just like to tell you that we are SO impressed by her. She is an AWESOME teacher, always smiling and happy. She runs AWESOME dance classes for kids and does a fantastic job keeping kids engaged and on task; she makes kids LOVE dance! She is also wonderful at keeping the parents in the loop, providing us with information and responding to e-mails. We LOVE Miss Care’n and hope that she can get some recognition in your company for being so truly fantastic — graceful in every sense of the word and such a professional.

Maiko- Irvine, CA

Thank you for the opportunity to allow Kayden to be a part the amazing recital. Kayden really enjoyed being on the stage and he wants to continue dancing! Thank you for all your hard work!!

Tamara- Irvine, CA

Hello, my daughter Angelina is in Ms. Amanda`s hip hop and jazz dance class on Friday evenings. I called into the office to to give her kudos for doing such a great job but was told that the best way to do this was to send an email. Ms. Amanda is wonderful with the kids and the fact that she has been able to teach them so much is admirable. Ms. Amanda is stern with the children when she needs to be but remains fun and makes the class very enjoyable for the kids. I feel that she is a wonderful asset to the Irvine programs and I am so happy that we have her as a teacher. Thank you so much for continuing to provide great activities for the children of Irvine.

Jane-Irvine, CA

The performance was amazing!!! It went so smoothly. You guys did afantastic job. Thanks for such a wonderful experience for my girls!

Eric- Irvine, CA

I am Riley’s very blessed and proud dad. I just wanted to say thank you for taking the time to pay attention to each of the kids you teach and not treat it like just a job. My daughter is fabulous! She loves being in your class. She feels music. She dances every day and regularly puts on dance recitals for My wife and Myself in the evening. What a wonderful gift, Music, dance, life!

Proud Parent, CA

Keep up the great work you are doing. I know you realize this, but sometimes it’s good to know other people do, as well, what you do makes a difference. It teaches the kids how to work through things for a positive outcome. It helps fill them with positive emotion and thoughts, which is followed by actions. And, for my daughter, it’s helps her be part of one of the things she loves most in life. I couldn’t be more proud of my daughter. She is amazing! The Recital was great btw! I know you and the other instructors put a lot of yourselves in making it special for the kids and the parents. You all did a great job! You, obviously, did the best job. I’m serious, you really did!

Beth-Irvine, CA

Thank you so much for all your hard work with the Disney parade. Michelle had a wonderful experience that was all because of your dedication to these children. Michelle only wants to continue with dance because of you. Thank you again. Your efforts make a difference in all these children’s lives.

Jennifer-Irvine, CA

Dear Miss Amanda and Miss Kim,
We just wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for working so hard to arrange such a magical day! Olivia said it was ‘awesome!’ being in the parade and it brought tears to our eyes, to see our little one perform at Disneyland! It was wonderful! Our whole OC Dance group was great and I hope you know how much you are appreciated! Have a nice, relaxing weekend! Big hugs! Olivia and Jennifer :)

Susan-Irvine, CA

I’ve been taking the Yoga Booty Ballet for a few years now. I always look forward to going and try to never miss a class because Kim and Claire are so fun and motivating! We burn lots of calories, get toned and stretch it all out too. I am so thankful for OC Dance Productions classes as an integral part of my weight loss and overall health and well-being!

Thank you for caring so much for our kids. Adding the kindness exercises just melted my heart to see how many stars my child won and how much fun she had doing it. It was such a fantastic add-in to summer camp!

Sera~Laguna Beach

We loved the recital! Thank you so much for making the experience one my daughters won’t forget. It exceeded my expectations and was such a beautiful day for them and us.

Lydia~San Clemente

Hi Taylor! My girls are loving your class. I have to tell you I can’t think of many coaches/teachers in my own life, let alone theirs, who connect as genuinely and with such talent as you.
