The Dance Ambassadors is a community performance group. Dancers in this group are RDC students age 7 to teen who go through an interview process and have been recommended by the teaching staff because of their love for dance and dedication to their RDC classes. They perform at multiple community events throughout the year, dance in the RDC Holiday Show, help out during RDC’s Parents Week, Open House, Picture Week and backstage at recital. They also dance with the teachers at RDC’s annual recital. Along with their regular classes, the Ambassadors meet weekly not only to learn the routines they perform, but also to work on technique and performance quality. The Ambassadors also help RDC give back to the community by suggesting service projects and help in their execution throughout the year. These amazing young people are truly role models for other dancers.
This invitation-only two-hour class is a more advanced hip hop class taught by Mr. Jason. This class is taught at a faster pace than intermediate classes, assumes knowledge of Mr. Jason’s teaching style and focuses on performance qualities, freestyling, and combining hip hop with other dance styles. This class also offers additional performance opportunities such as large community performances and special appearances at professional venues. In general, these students have had multiple years of hip hop instruction from Mr. Jason, the RDC Hip Hop Director.
