The Rage Box Educational Program offers classes for all ages. Three separate divisions supplies students with differing abilities multi-leveled and developmental training. Our Early Childhood Division offers a sequential curriculum in dance for the young child ages 18 months to 6 years. Classes begin with our Mini Movers program then move into our Pre-Dance classes and our Ballet, Jazz, Tap, and Hip Hop programs. The Early Childhood program was developed by our highly experienced and well educated faculty. The program gives the young child the opportunity to explore the different forms of dance as well as explore the arts as they relate to each other. Moving into our Recreational Division, students age 7-18 can dance for fun without the commitment of having to take multiple classes. Recreational students enjoy the benefit of having our Preparatory program instructors in a less competitive and more laid back environment. Students who participate in our recreational program are never required to take ballet but are recommended especially if they desire to make a transition into the preparatory division. The Preparatory Division at the Rage Box Contemporary Dance Center is geared to those students age 7-18 who desire more serious dance training.

Rage Box Dancers have been labeled “Swiss Army Knife” dancers because of their versatility in all forms whether it be classical ballet, contemporary, or hip hop.

Whether they are career minded or desire to pursue their college degree, The Rage Box produces highly competitive students. Rage Box dancers have been labeled “Swiss Army Knife” dancers because of their versatility in all forms whether it be classical ballet, contemporary, or hip hop. The prep program requires dancers to study all forms of contemporary dance while continually developing a solid base in classical ballet.
