​​​​​​​​​​​Disc​over the Artist Within, Dream the Impossible, Dedicate to Your Vision!

Welcome to the Santa Ana College Dance Department! Our mission is to encourage ​ALL STUDENTS to discover the artist within and share their joy and passion for dance. We strive to support students' dreams and visions, and provide focused direction for dedication to academia and accomplishment of goals in education, dance training, and life-long learning​. We are committed to serving students who are interested in seeking transfer to 4-year universities, obtaining a dance certificate of achievement, exploring dance career opportunities, or simply embracing the connection of community and learning.
