Richland Academy Dance Company

The Richland Academy Dance Ensemble is designed as a pre-professional training company.  It is divided into four groups based on age and skill:  rade, rade jr., radKidz, and radKidz2. 

Company members are all required to take a certain amount of classes each week. The amount of weekly training required depends on the dancer’s age and level.  There is much training that goes into being part of the company and it takes lots of dedication and hard work to reach the advanced level (rade). The members of the dance companies perform at least 4 times throughout the 9 month season and sometimes more!

Many of our dance company alumni have gone on to study dance in college, perform in various companies and even continue on to teach. Dance not only teaches students the technique, but it also teaches students mental and physical discipline, time management, problem solving,  and performance skills, all of which have a positive impact on their futures.

There is an annual audition.  For information about audition requirements and expectations please contact the Dance Department Chair, Sarah Horrigan-Ramos, at

The staff at the Richland Academy shares in your desire for all to have an exceptional experience with the arts. The best way to see if the programs currently offered at the Academy are a fit for you is to request information »
