Since 1981 the school of Rockford Dance Company has offered the finest in training and performance opportunities for aspiring ballet and modern dancers. Visit during company class and you will see that the young people standing alongside each other at the barre truly reflect the great diversity of our community.
Rockford Dance Company is training young dancers from all walks of life to become technically strong, disciplined and confident...both on and off the stage. A full schedule of classes, camps and outreach instruction provides inclusive dance experiences for many who would otherwise never experience live dance.
Nearly all RDC company members have come up through RDC's school and many have received help in the form of financial aid and scholarships. Assistance based on financial need and talent is awarded each year to help remove financial obstacles for students who otherwise may not be able to afford tuition and attire.
