After School Programs

Making dance accessible to as many people as possible is our goal. We know transportation is a common issue for people. We are partnering with several area afterschool programs to bring dance to them. If you would like to invest in our efforts, please consider making a donation! If you run an afterschool program looking for dance as an option, reach out to us!

Special Needs Programs

RUD is excited to bring back this FREE class for special needs dancers. Our Special Needs Hip Hop class is a fun and supportive class designed to fit the needs of your child. It will allow them to engage in follow along hip hop dance and creative movement in a safe and loving environment. Each student will have one on one instruction and will be encouraged to express themselves through music and movement in a fun and creative way. No experience is required.

We also partner with Autism Society of Central VA and our staff and leaders receive training to make RUD an “Autism Friendly Organization”. We provide discounts to all ASCVA members seeking to join inclusive classes.

Gospel Hip Hop

Our organization is not registered as a faith based organization, but we essentially seek to serve people because of our faith and love for God. We aim to give Him glory for the talents, opportunities and relationships we are blessed with through RUD. Offering this FREE weekly class is just one way we praise and thank Him.

Performance Squad

The RUD Performance Squad is a training and performance program for dancers that have a desire to expand their skills as a dancer and gain performing experience. The intention of the program is to provide further training that isn’t taught in general classes as well as provide opportunities for dancers to more frequently showcase their talent at community and private events. It is FREE to join the team and there are no auditions. For more info about the requirements and expectations, please email
