royal expressions school of dance

Welcome to Royal Expressions School of Dance!  Our dance studio is located just south of Downtown off S Eugene Street and across from Goodwill Industries of Central NC.  When you arrive we are in Unit B in the back of the church.  We are excited to welcome you to our school and cannot wait to dance with you!  

There are many benefits of dance, but these 7 stand out the most: Confident Leaders, Teamwork, Health and Wellness, Focus, Time Management, Poise, and an opportunity to Unplug from devices!  

Dance is the only art form that includes physical fitness.  We put a major emphasis on these benefits throughout the Royal Expressions School of Dance Curriculum®.

Dance that Inspires

The official school of Royal Expressions Contemporary Ballet offering dance training for ages 2 - 92 years old.

Our teachers go through rigorous training in the Royal Expressions Curriculum to ensure the instruction they provide is of the highest quality.  We also offer the American Ballet Theater National Training Curriculum (Pre-Primary to Level 3).  We are in the process of certification for Levels 4 & 5.

We also host a Master Class series featuring prominent dancers from around the country. These instructors come to our studio, which is open to the community, to provide dancers with even more opportunities to learn different techniques. Past artists have included Misty Copeland, Alicia Graf Mack, Carlita Victoria, Kentrell Newton, and Kara “KJ” Wade.
