  • 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. RPM master teachers have the experience and expertise to help with virtually all aspects of dance pedagogy. In short, we are a growing family that is changing ballet for the better. 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.

“I’ve been teaching and using RPM for more than 15 years. The principles continue to reinforce to this day how important Ruth Petrinovic’s 50+ years of work on these empowering, principles and the effects they continue to have on the dance world. Mastering these principles has given me great enjoyment in my work as a International Classical Ballet Teacher, Coach & Repetiteur.”
