Starlettes is OC Dance’s own performance group without the pressures of competition squads.

Our focus is on furthering our dancers’ skills to a more intermediate level and providing local performance opportunities to build character and expose dancers to different performance experiences. 

Starlettes must be pre-approved by our staff to participate and approval is based on skill level, maturity, and work ethic. Team members receive a team t-shirt, costume, a digital recording of OCDP’s recital, and two comped recital tickets per family. Starlettes perform at OC Dance’s biannual recital and one to two local events per season. Starlettes classes focus on beginning/intermediate technique with an emphasis on performance choreography and team dance skills. Starlettes Performance Group classes must purchase costume and commit to performances. A nominal fee applies for performance costume (fall and winter/spring). Additional supply fee for team t-shirt for new Starlettes. Performance groups are offered in the following styles: Ballet & Hip Hop.

Jan-May commitment for spring performances
Sept-Dec commitment for fall performances

Starlettes Ballet dancers are required to also be enrolled in either Ballet Level 2 or Ballet Level 3 throughout the corresponding session(s).
