DANCE CLASSES

At Riverside Theatre Education, our dance program recognizes that learning a dance is very different than learning to dance. Our professional instructors seek to impart skills that will equip our students for success in, and out, of the dance studio. Regardless of age, we provide a structured and rigorous environment that reflects the physical, intellectual, and emotional skills the study of dance develops.  (Please read the following policies regarding placement, schedule, and dress code before registering for classes.)
