That was always my beef with OC. It seems that modern dance in orange county thrives in the colleges and universities. I got my fill of it in college there, but whenever I asked around for classes outside of school no one could give me a good suggestion. I personally took ballet classes at Anaheim Ballet. If you like modern/jazz combos, try Mike Esparanza's class at Jimmy Defore's (it's entitled "jazz", but he definitely uses modern dance vocabulary). Other than that, if you ever like driving to San Diego I could possibly give you better advice :P.

Best place for ballet in Orange County is Anaheim Ballet. They just started a modern class as well which is on Thursdays at 7 pm.
