Rochester Conservatory of Dance LLC
About  Us

RCD is located at 3910 Buffalo Road in North Chili. Our facility has 2 beautiful dance rooms with fully mirrored walls, professional sound systems, and natural lighting.

Rochester Conservatory of Dance fosters a tolerant and accepting artistic forum for students to express themselves through the art of dance. RCD offers small class sizes to provide the individual attention every student deserves.

RCD believes that the training received inside the studio, extends far beyond the walls of the classroom. The education provided at RCD encourages discipline, responsibility, teamwork, confidence, and an over all healthy lifestyle. We believe that anyone can dance.  All levels and abilities are welcome. We believe in meeting the students where they are to help them grow on a personal level, while helping them work together as a team to accomplish group goals. Most of all, we believe that dance is about having fun!

Annual Performance
Our Annual Performance gives our students the opportunity to showcase their talents and dedication to the art form in front of their family and friends. We hope to create a lasting memory for all in attendance. Our past performances have taken place at Hartwell Dance Theater at the New Your State College at Brockport, followed by a public reception in the theaters foyer to celebrate the RCD Dancers and their achievement!

Performance Company
The RCD Performance enables dancers ages 6 and up to have the opportunity to showcase their talents in front of judges at various competitions taking place in Rochester and its surrounding cities. 

Performance Opportunities
We are always looking for more opportunities to allow our students to perform and  encourage our students to participate in performance opportunities in the community! We have performed in parades, and other local performances through out the year, including local productions of The Nutcracker.
