"It is the desire of the Directors and staff of RSB to develop in each student a love for dance, a strong technical foundation, and an artistic education."

Develop Together

A strong student can truly flourish in an environment with purposeful and engaged teams.


We are fortunate to have such an incredibly easy to access facility that both our staff and our parents will  greatly appreciate.

Amazing Shows

One of the most remarkable parts of the love of dance is the yearly productions we have prided ourselves on for decades.


We pride ourselves on true artistic education for our students, as true art encompasses all the greatest aspects of life.
