We’ve had a huge year and are taking the fall to reflect. Our focus in the next couple of months through to 2017, will be on a growth through restructuring, finding sustainable funding sources and expanding our team. If you are interested in being a part of the team on a long term basis or volunteer short term, get in touch!

During this period of growth, RTD programming (Saturday Drop-ins and the Intensive) will be on hiatus. Please help us spread the word, we know that these classes are special to many people. We will continue to share other opportunities to move and dance on the Right to Dance Facebook group

Finally, we are still booking workshops and performances during this time, please get in contact with us!
