Open Company Classes
COME MOVE WITH US!
RDC is excited to offer both in-person and virtual open classes! Classes are suitable for high intermediate/advanced pre-professional or professional dancers, usually 16+.
New Class Address: 7909 Big Bend Blvd, Webster Groves, MO 63119
All classes are only $5 each.
We offer affordable, accessible classes for the working dancer as part of our mission of putting artists first. Our classes are thoughtfully curated with a diverse mix of offerings to sustain our own company, independent artists, and pre-professional dancers.
We specifically fundraise in order to offer our classes at such a discounted rate and are grateful for our community's ongoing support. If you'd like to support our continued offering of $5 classes, please consider donating here.
