About RDM

Our team has a heart for Jesus, which means that they see your children from a unique perspective. They are not only concerned with proper alignment and technique but also their spiritual alignment and God-honoring character. They have a desire to build up students and not tear them down, to unite and not divide.

Our mission is to teach the art of dance for the purpose of glorifying God and spreading the gospel of Hope to the nations through movement. We believe that He is redeeming dance, taking it back from the world to restore it to its original design, the worship and praise of God with our whole selves.
