What should we expect of our first class?

" River City Dance & Performing Arts Theatre is about the child - not the performance. They are about teaching the child - not degrading them. They are about embracing the child - not ignoring them. For these reasons and many more, I believe I have found the perfect place for my daughter to learn and enjoy dance! "
