Our Story

Monie Adamson and husband Darick Parrish established FOCUS Dance Center in 2003 with the heartfelt vision of creating a Studio reflective of the high family standards of the Irvine Community. It was most important to provide a climate where neighborhood families could come together in a safe environment that was inclusive, supportive of values and offered the positive mental, physical, and social wellness of Dance and Fitness. Their dream included giving back to the community by focusing on developing self-confidence, teamwork, responsibility, and socialization, as well as the full artistic potential of every student.

Fast forward 21 years, Monie is grateful to be leading an incredible team of approximately 30 highly credentialed and talented individuals. Her Teaching Faculty and professional Office Team live that vision and thoughtfully bring diverse high-quality Dance, Fitness, and Performance training, as well as the Art of Dance, to the Irvine Community.

Frequently Asked Questions

FOCUS dance center is the most amazing dance center. My daughter has danced here since she was 3 years old and has been competing for 6 years. The teachers are amazing and inspiring! The environment is so loving and the girls are so amazing and supportive. We can't say enough about how wonderful this studio is! I highly recommend it from the new dancer to the most experienced this is an amazing studio.

I cannot say enough about how professional and organized this studio is! My son did their Jr. Tap class this past season and loved it. The teachers are great with kids and know how to teach to a variety of personalities and ages.

My daughter has been dancing at FOCUS for the past six years and is honored to have been part of the FDC Competing Team for the last four years.  At FOCUS she has studied ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, acro/tumbling, contemporary, and hip-hop. Her teachers have always been superb and the variety and quality of the instruction at FOCUS are far superior to that of her former dance studio.

Thank you so much for allowing my daughter to attend in person. She is ready and excited to dance in the studio again! Thank you once again for everything you and your staff are doing to make sure our kids can continue their love of dance!

I know that a lot goes into running a studio such as FOCUS. To us the parents and to the dancers the benefits are huge, we even have trophies and medals for them. But the friendships our girls and boys develop are a testament to the true reward we all received by sending our children to FOCUS.
