Welcome to the RYDE!

IT'S SHOWTIME! Get ready for the Greatest Show on earth! Come and join the RYDE as we enter into our 6th season of offering character-based dance classes to children and youth in our community!  

RYDE is now a 501c3 nonprofit organization, whose mission is to provide a creative outlet for youth that builds character, raises self-esteem, boosts confidence, and promotes positive interaction through artistic expression.

This year's journey will continue to focus on mentoring and character development through the art form of dance. We also plan on using the arts and its disciplines to reinforce our mission, which is to build character, boost self-confidence, develop healthy self-images, promote positive friendships--- all while providing children and youth an opportunity to learn dance techniques in a positive, safe environment. This form of creativity acts as a vehicle for their own artistic expression.

RYDE is now offering adult fitness classes to create community, connection, and build overall health and wellness for the whole family!

COME JOIN THE JOURNEY TO BETTER HEATH AND WELLNESS and

RYDE into FITNESS with the Royal Youth Dance Ensemble!
