The hardest step to learn is the one that takes you to your first class.
Our philosophy is three-fold: we believe dance should be for everyone and that everyone should access to a high level of training. We believe that dance is an opportunity not only to create art, but also to build confidence, social skills and physical well-being. We believe in the healing power of dance and the promotion of the mind, body and spirit connection, in living in the moment while being present in the dance. RL Dance is about creating a fun atmosphere where kids and adults alike feel safe to express themselves. We strive to create a family atmosphere where our dancers are more than just students; we are united in dance.
