  • RPM is a systematic teaching philosophy that addresses the whole student, fostering confidence and common sense while training the body to move effortlessly.

    For dance teachers, RPM is a set of tools for you to use to help your students achieve their full potential.

    RPM is also a network of like-minded members who share your values and share experiences and encouragement.

As your involvement grows, we welcome you to become the next RPM master teacher. We believe that RPM gives you an edge. The students get better, the teachers impart wisdom of the body and spirit, the studio gains prestige because parents know that their child is treated with love while being challenged to develop their art.
