"Our daughter started with Dance Theatre of Orange when she was 4 years old. Over the years we have grown as a family with Miss Marianne, the teachers and students of Dance Theatre Orange. It is a safe and nurturing environment where every student is provided the opportunity from highly qualified and skilled teachers to learn and enjoy dance whilst being supported and encouraged to be the best that they can be.
The annual concert is a particular highlight of the year and Miss Marianne's natural ability for choreography and commitment ensuring that every student is given the opportunity to shine makes this an excellent experience for the students to participate and is immensely enjoyable.
We would definitely recommend Dance Theatre of Orange to anyone looking for a school that focuses on developing and supporting student's abilities and dance technique, has an energetic attitude, provides highly qualified and caring teachers and offers a welcoming and friendly environment."
