P R O G R A M S

We have enough dance classes to do a different one each day of the week. Why so many classes? They have been designed for different personalities and different outcomes. Dance and drama are the perfect way to engage in roleplay activities building upon social skills and storytelling. Choosing the right class truly depends on what you or your child want from the outcome. Each class has a purpose both artistically and socially. Read through the descriptions below and if you need further help, don't hesitate to reach out to us.

”Rockit has been a huge blessing. I've watched my daughter blossom and have a confidence in herself that was lacking for so long.
I feel like we've gained a second " family" with other families whose children attend and to the staff, especially you Noni.
The encouragement you've given in not only my daughter but in every single child that comes through your doors is beautiful.
You see the strengths in every one of them and help them be the best they can be”.
