Ballet is the fundamental style of all dance. In our ballet classes at RDS, we focus on proper technique, correct muscle usage, terminology, and choreography, no matter the age. Ballet helps with posture, hip and leg strength, as well as fluidity and grace. At any age and level, we conduct structured and productive ballet classes to ensure progress and growth in every dancer.



RDS is proud to offer pre pointe and pointe classes for our advanced and experienced ballet students. All pre pointe students must take at least one ballet class per week in order to participate in pre pointe classes. Clearance by Miss Ellie and the instructor is required.



RDS offers a one-of-a-kind jazz class that focuses on the style and music of broadway and musicals. Choreography and across-the-floor technique exercises are highly focused upon in this high-energy, fast-paced class. We recommend this class for dancers who feel caught in the middle between hip hop and ballet. It’s a perfect happy medium!



Our hip hop classes at RDS zone in on execution, full-out movements, and stunts. With a new choreography every week to help with memory and comprehension, hip hop is an energetic, high intensity style at every level. We strive to challenge our hip hop dancers with all six styles of hip hop, regardless of level, to expose them to every variety of the hip hop style. 

There are several levels for hip hop to accommodate and challenge every dancer at every age. Advanced classes are by instructor-approval only.



At RDS, we mash up acrobatic stunts and lyrical to create a beautiful and challenging class that focuses on flexibility, inversions, full body strength, and elegance. Each class is 50% acro and 50% lyrical with choreographies that combine the two. This class is recommended for dancers with a strong ballet or jazz background.
