We are ramping up to reopen this summer!

Virtual learning will continue to be offered as we reopen.

We have loved being able to interact with each other through our Virtual classes. If you haven't attended one yet, download our SCC app to see how easy it is to join. Starting in June, we are excited to also offer virtual summer camps and intensives. Many kids are using this opportunity to learn new skills and feel good dancing, while staying at home. 

We are going to finalize our Summer Dance Festival choreography in our virtual classes and film our festival shows in July. Details of filming the shows will be sent to our students when the costumes arrive.

Starting June 1st, our studios are reopening for private lessons and private classes (under 6 students). You can book these lessons on the new SCC App. Please take a moment to fill out this parent survey for when we reopen.

South Coast Conservatory's Disinfecting Procedures

We are taking proactive measures to keep all employees, our students and families, and our studio safe. Please read the following disinfecting procedures in for reopening and in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We need to be vigilant to keep our school safe. The disinfecting protocols are effective upon your return to inside the premises. 

For further reference, the CDC Guidance on Cleaning and Disinfecting, can be accessed at:

Help us honor students and families in unique ways

Traditionally we showcase our graduating seniors at the Summer Dance Festival.  This year, we are showcasing our 6 seniors in  their individual highschool themed booths in our studio parking lot on Sunday June 7th, 3-5pm. Swing by in your cars and give them your cheers and applause, one last time! You can also join us for a Virtual Father's Day Dance event on June 13 & 14, 11:00am, where you can dance with your child.  The whole family is encouraged to join in to celebrate all the “stay at home” memories we are making together.  

I want to thank everyone for continuing to learn with our instructors, in a new format, and staying positive and focused. We all look forward to the time when we can safely reunite at the studio so we can continue to feel good.

This week is the start of our Virtual Dance Training 2.0. We are offering 78 55 min Virtual classes each week. This method of learning is a great way to engage with friends and dance teachers. Check out the schedule on our website or the new and improved SCC App that you can download in Apple and Android versions. Both are easy to navigate and enroll. You can book private lessons, sign up for classes, and even schedule small private classes.

San Clemente studios will be permanently closed. We will incorporate the San Clemente classes at the Laguna Niguel location when we reopen. We currently don’t have any new information about when we can have large gatherings. More details will come in next update.

Dance Discovery Foundation in partnership with #GivingTuesday s hosting a Dance-A-Thon, with 18 free masterclasses on a Live YouTube feed . You can learn more by visiting  #DanceNeverDies.  Thank you so very much for your support and love of dance.

~UPDATE, 04-17-2020

The COVID-19 pandemic is a fluid situation which is why we have been evaluating what to do next every other week. Everyday we get new guidelines and things change. In light of the recent School District's Board Meeting decisions, as well as taking into consideration local Government and Health Officials current rules in place for small businesses / Large Gatherings, etc., SCC Management has decided that our studio will need to remain closed until further notice.


Despite social distancing, dancing has remained social. Many of you have reported that dancing in a “live” class with your teacher and dance friends is your preferred choice of online learning. Starting May 4, we will be expanding our Live ZOOM classes to 55 minutes and offer more class options. We will continue our SCC Industry Nights Masterclass Program and also provide access to On Demand videos through CLI Studio which has dozens of great Master classes. Access to these classes are going to be much easier and the options more plentiful. The schedule will be online April 25. All current auto pays have been cancelled. The new pricing packages and online schedule will be emailed by our amazing front desk team next week. You can sign-up at or through the SCC App. Families with an autopay contract can get the best value for these classes.


We will postpone our Summer Festival (Aladdin, Swan Lake, Collision, In The Air shows). We are working with the school district to reschedule our dates for a time that is safe to have large gatherings. The Directors will send a detailed email to our leads of Aladdin and Swan Lake. Costumes were ordered in late February and are scheduled to arrive in May. We will store them until we resume classes. If your child grows, our costumes companies have confirmed that they will work with us to find alternatives. Instructors will continue to teach relevant dance combinations that may be used for Festival Choreography. We will make sure to have enough time to prepare for our performances when we are allowed to be back in the studio. In the meantime, $75 festival participation fees has been credited back to your account to use towards any of our services of your choice.


It is with great sadness that we are forced to close our San Clemente location, due to the dramatic change in economic conditions from COVID-19. I am primarily a San Clemente teacher, and I know how much this was your home away from home. This was a VERY hard decision to make. But we will recover!!  When it is safe for us to return to classes, we will modify our new class schedule to accommodate our highly valued San Clemente families at our Laguna Niguel location. And then we will rebuild.


None of us know how long it will take before large gatherings, like competitions, can resume. Our amazing Competitive Director, Cassidy Breeze, is sending an update to our competitive families detailing our plan of action Monday, April 20th.


We will continue to offer virtual private lessons. This is a great way to get 1on1 training from your incredible instructors and help them financially survive this. You can book these at or through the SCC App.


We are optimistic that our summer camps and Intensives will be held as planned. We will continue to offer online instruction, in addition to our studio classes starting in July. We are very excited! Everyone will be very ready to dance together again!!

~UPDATE, 03-13-2020

Over the past day, we have received lots of information on COVID-19. Here at SCC we have decided to do the following:

We will be closed for SCC classes, competitions, and private lessons starting today at 3:30pm. 

We postpone in-class instruction until March 30. This date is subject to change, so look for updated emails.

We will offer remote learning options. Our industry has pulled together some amazing resources to help you navigate the new "remote class" waters. We will send links to those resources soon.

Teachers will be videotaping instruction, such as exercises to do at home and choreography for our Summer Festival. Teachers will send those directly to their students in the next 2 weeks.  

Please visit our YouTube channel, starting next week, for fun tutorials that you can do at home.

We will be extending all of our classes and private lessons into the last 2 weeks of June.

We will provide more information as quickly as possible. We love our SCC families and want to keep everyone safe and healthy.
Kind regards,
Jena Minnick-Bull, Director
South Coast Conservatory
