What makes RCDC Company different?
WE ARE A TEAM. We focus on training dancers not only to be great technicians, but also upstanding young men and women who can work well with others and understand the value of teamwork. Rock City Dance Center is a nationally recognized studio that is founded on the pillars of Respect, Character, Dedication and Creativity. These values are the core of the RCDC Company. At Rock City Dance Center, we provide a positive learning experience that is not based solely on winning awards; instead, we promote dancers to use their talents to the best of their abilities. We want every child to be proud of who they are! We serve dancers who love to perform and give them the opportunity to compete and excel on stage alongside their friends and teammates. Company Dancers learn the importance of determination, discipline, and time management; ultimately working hard for what they desire. These skills not only help our students succeed in dance, but also in their future academic, professional, and personal endeavors.
Rock City Dance Center opened in May 2010 in Little Rock under the direction of Kristen Sadler Pittman. The RCDC Company was founded that first year and started with 60 inaugural members . Since year one, the training programs at RCDC have been recognized for their talent and creativity. That first year, the RCDC Company produced three national champions and received two national choreography awards. Rock City quickly built a reputation for excellence in the competitive dance world regionally and nationally. RCDC is nationally known for training strong dancers who are not only quality technicians, but also incredible artists. RCDC expanded in 2021 by opening a second studio in Conway, Arkansas! Under the direction of Kiley Lefler, the Conway Competitive program launched in July of 2021. Kiley is a former student of Rock City Dance Center and always dreamed of the day Conway could have the same Rock City Dance Center experience right at their fingertips. Along with Lauren Wood and Megan Tillman, the dancers at RCDC Conway will have a leadership team that will set them up for success for years to come.
