Hello! We'd love to welcome you onto our dance floor and into our community. New Courses Enrolling Now.

I was hooked! I signed up for another couple of classes - and the whole world started to open around me. The teachers all had different styles - but I was in awe of each and every one of them. I saw amazing people dance - and started to emulate their moves ... Rio became family to me

TESTIMONIAL

My experiences with Rio Rhythmics over the past years have been nothing but fantastic. The team at Rio’s has always nurtured, supported and guided the dancer within me and given me plenty of exciting and fun opportunities. I’m so proud and grateful to be a part of the team at Rio Rhythmics.

Dancing isn’t just about being able to do the steps or having good technique or exercising to keep fit, it is about how it makes you feel inside and how you share your energy and emotions with those around you. Dance is a way to be heard without having to speak. Dancing has weaved itself into every aspect of my life and is one of the things closest to my heart. It is one of my true passions.

And Start Something New

Learning Salsa & Bachata was on my bucket list, so I took the plunge and started classes at Rio Rhythmics.

After attending a few of the Saturday night dance parties, I decided I wanted to learn a few more styles, so enrolled in Latin Starter. I think I'm addicted. The teachers are so supportive and encouraging, making learning a pleasure.
