Welcome to Ruckus Dance Alliance!
Ruckus is about being part of a team, being a role model, and really working for what you want. If you are willing to challenge yourself more than you ever have before, then you are ready to cause a Ruckus!
What are you interested in today?
At Ruckus Dance Alliance we provide dance instruction for students of all ages! From hip hop to contemporary dance, we have something for everyone.
A fun introduction to dance using imagination and game playing. Students learn the basics of attending a dance class, including following directions, taking turns, and listening.
Dancing is a great way to make friends, develop confidence, and get exercise! Our classes are small so everyone gets personal attention.
Competitive dance is so much more than what you see on TV! We offer a supportive atmosphere in which dancers are challenged to reach their full potential.
