The mission of Rhythm N Dance is to provide quality cultural education and performance opportunities in music and dance education of the African diaspora for the youth and aspiring artists. We believe that through dance, music, and education, we can empower the next generation of leaders and change-makers. Our programs are designed to foster creativity, teamwork, and self-confidence while also providing a fun and supportive environment. We offer classes/workshops for all levels, from beginner to advanced, and our experienced instructors are passionate about sharing their love of music and dance with everyone who experiences our programming. We also offer performance opportunities for our students/aspiring artists, giving them a chance to showcase their talent and skills in front of a live audience. We are proud to offer dance education and performances that reflect the beauty and diversity of the African diaspora, and we look forward to sharing our passion for dance with everyone who joins us at Rhythm N Dance.


Rhythm n Dance provides high quality educational programming that develops youth and aspiring artists. Using curriculum that integrates the performing arts through cultural ethnography and traditional dance pedagogy, we offer our students and community a unique blend of cultural-based education. We aim to develop our students from an artistic and socially responsible perspective. They complete our programming as independent, cooperative, responsible and creative young adults with a lifelong interest and ability in learning and the arts. We believe that these skills and qualities will prepare our students to pursue further educational goals and allow them to contribute to the life and well being of society as a whole.

Our vision includes the belief that:

  • A strong cultural arts education program unlocks and supports the artistic potential of our paticipants.

  • The best discipline comes from a commitment to the educational process and shared goals.

  • Cultural performing arts programming encourages each individual to work in a creative, cooperative and collaborative manner while promoting independent thinking.

  • Students learn best in a supportive and creative environment placed within a firm framework of high standards in teaching and learning.


We offer classes and workshops in traditional and contemporary styles of dance, as well as  workshops in traditional West African drumming.
