Our Mission

Reif Dance works to support the development of each dancer as an artist and individual through quality instruction and performance opportunities.

The Program

Reif Dance is Northern Minnesota’s premiere dance program. Located in the Reif Performing Arts Center, we offer quality instruction for both the aspiring and recreational student. Since 1989, Reif Dance has encouraged people of all ages to study the art of dance. It’s a positive environment lead by professional faculty, where older students learn to mentor and encourage younger students, creating a spirit of community.

We are dedicated to maintaining a safe, exciting, and engaging environment where students can learn and explore the art of dance. Our three beautiful, sprung-floor studios are designed to help prevent injury. Our location within the Reif Performing Arts Center gives students access to two state-of-the-art stages on which to perform.

Another perk of being affiliated with the Reif Center is the opportunity to work with the national touring artists that come to perform in Grand Rapids. Reif Dance students often receive discounted tickets to see dance performances in addition to attending Master Classes with visiting artists.
Reif Dance is proud to employ professional, dynamic and accomplished instructors who tailor each of their classes to be an ideal balance of education, work, and fun.

Our Classes

Reif Dance offers classes for students ages 4 to adult in the following styles: ballet, pointe, jazz, modern, mime, and improvisation. Reif Dance focuses on technical training through hard work, commitment, and creativity – all the skills necessary for a future in dance and theater or any other field. Reif Dance is dedicated to maintaining a positive, healthy environment where young people can grow into creative and successful adults.

Tuition is based on the number of class periods a student dances each week, and our costs are very competitive. If cost is an issue, the Reif Center offers full and partial scholarships on a rolling basis. For information, visit our Tuition & Scholarships page.
