Based in Orange County, CA, Definitely Dance, Inc. is an organization dedicated to creating a fun-filled, inspiring experience for seniors and people with disabilities through the art of ballroom dance. We help individuals with a wide array of disabilities, injuries, and/or degenerative diseases learn exciting techniques, steps and choreography. Dancing is an incredibly powerful, therapeutic activity, and we believe our classes offer a great opportunity for all types of recovery and rehabilitation.
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” – Vivian Greene
During the chaos of the COVID-19 crisis, we are not currently offering any live, physical classes. In this difficult time, we miss all of our students, but wish you all the best! Better to be safe than sorry. Stay safe everyone, and we cannot wait to see all of you again, hopefully very soon! We will dance again!
