“Avanti” is Italian for forward. Our goal is to ensure that each and every student is "always moving forward" in their dance education. We provide a welcoming and inspiring environment dedicated to developing each student’s own unique skill set until they reach their full potential as versatile dancers and artists.
Our educators are comprised of current and former professional dancers who wish to pass on their training to the next generation. We emphasize respect, positivity and hard work. The only dancers our students are allowed to compare themselves to, are the dancers they were yesterday.
We are located in Costa Mesa, California on the border of Newport Beach and Irvine. We welcome dancers of all ages and levels from pre-school, recreational to pre-professional. Outstanding instruction in Jazz, Tap, Hip Hop, Classical Ballet, Lyrical, Contemporary, Acro/Tumbling, Aerial Dance/Aerial Arts and competitive performance teams.

Little Stars Does your little one love to move as soon as the music comes on? Both boys and girls love dance and music. This is a great way for children under the age five to have exposure to the arts and dance based on developmental levels by age. Class sizes are smaller for this age range and curriculums keep children progressing, where they are encouraged in a positive and fun environment. Students have the opportunity to perform annually at our winter and spring Student Showcases. Learn more
Performance Co. Is a collective of dancers ages 6-20 who show extreme passion for dance and aspire to have a career in dance. These dancers have the option to train extensively in either classical dance - ballet and pointe - or commercial dance - contemporary, modern, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip hop. Most of our dancers take both of these tracks and become extremely versatile, well-rounded dancers. Learn more
Aerial Arts Is a subgenre of modern dance first recognized in the United States in the 1970s. The choreography incorporates an apparatus often attached to the ceiling. This consists of Silks, also called Fabric or Tissue, which is an extended piece of fabric attached in the middle to the ceiling to create two long tails or Lyra, also known as Hoop, which is a steel ring hung vertically from the ceiling.
