Rêve is an exceptional dance program offering unparalleled dance education and training for dancers in Orange County. Founded upon unwavering principles of excellence, Rêve Conservatory of Dance provides professional dance training to students as young as 1 year old to students in college looking to make dance their career.

It is our firm belief that every dancer must start with strong technical training, in the classical dance disciplines. We train, mentor and guide dancers to reach their full potential both in out of the studio. Our emphasis on technique and form begins in our preschool dance program. We take full advantage of all that is wonderful about a preschooler and make sure that our program is sweet, encouraging, and interactive.

Our curriculum is designed as a year-round program. It is our goal to keep your child interested in dance and to ensure that s/he is learning and progressing each week. To meet these goals, we introduce new lessons, music, and teaching concepts on a regular basis. We also incorporate themes, costuming, and props to keep dancers interested and motivated. We proudly host 3 recitals/performances each year and encourage all dancers to participate in these extra special dance events!

Rêve Dance Conservatory has 7 dance rooms and 2 locations. Our classes for preschool age kids are held at Cal Elite Kids and our team and more advanced dancers take class less than a half a  mile away at our second studio located it at 22576 Avenida Empresa, RSM.
