Students can also enjoy a variety of performance opportunities including the end of the year Student Showcase, public performances, and by becoming a member of the Rokita Dance Center Competition Team.

Rokita Dance Center is located in a new,
up-to date facility with four spacious dance rooms. Each dance room is equipped with custom made sprung/raised dance floors, mirrors to the floor, stationary and portable ballet barres, and top of the line sound/dj system.

Rokita Dance Center strives to provide its dancers with a dance education, performance and audition experience, and exposure to the dance industry. Whether a student studies dance as an extra-curricular activity or with a passion to pursue the art for life, there is a place for every dancer with us at Rokita Dance Center. Not only can dance provide a life-long career and network, dance is a great physical activity and promotes overall physical and mental health.
