The Best Dance Training In The Region Since 1963
The Rock School mission focuses on excellence in dance training and in nurturing children and young people. At The Rock School they learn patience, persistence, attention to detail, discipline, teamwork and self-motivation. The Rock School for Dance Education has developed a reputation as one of the nation's top pre-professional training programs. The School's primary goal is to produce classically trained and versatile dancers, which The School has done for nearly 50 years. The School's exceptional faculty, individual attention, unique in-house academic program, supervised residence program, nurturing environment, personal attention, and the success of its alumni attract dancers from around the globe. Approximately 1,500 dancers audition each year.
Building on a strong artistic foundation, over the years the School and its programs have grown in reputation from a small regional ballet school to the internationally acclaimed Rock School for Dance Education, thanks to loyal patrons like YOU! See how you can double your donation today!
Our students will display all the beauty, wonder and elegance of birds in this staged ballet celebration: Carnival of Birds. Dynamic, fluid and virtuosic dancers will come to life for an unforgettable and captivating performance at the beautiful Merriam Theatre.
This year's Gala is just around the corner! All the Right Moves is the celebration of self expression through movement and focuses on the lives of Rock School students, and the important decisions or “moves” which influenced their long term goals to pursue dance as a career.
Watch your child perform and see how much they've improved since the last Parent Observation!
