As a parent, I am proud to have my daughter taking dance at Ruckus Dance Alliance. The atmosphere is positive and friendly, allowing the dancers to focus on learning what they love… dance.

Proud Ruckus Parent

I have been a dance mom for over 13 years and from the moment my daughter and I walked into Ruckus we felt at home. I can’t say that I ever really felt that way at our previous studio that we had spent so much time at. Carrie is wonderful and she has a great group of teachers that supports in every way.

Parent of a Senior Dancer

Ruckus is a wonderful dance studio. Carrie and her staff are amazing. They are extremely organized and professional. We are notified of events and schedules well in advance to allow for planning and budgeting. The dance teachers focus on teaching proper dance technique in addition to their dance routine. My daughter has seen a tremendous improvement in her flexibility over the past 6 months.
