Testimonials from Brisbane classes
I love learning from Rita. As a teacher she never fails to challenge, inspire, support and guide her students. As she shares her knowledge and skills she is caring and in tune with where you are in your dance journey, often giving you just the right push you need to get to that next level. With her guidance I have achieved new heights and look forward to every class.

I find Rita sets a standard that we all aspire to achieve in our dance and performances. Her teaching style is inclusive, with the ability to break down each move to exquisite detail while interpreting the move for each individual's own style & ability. She is upbeat, detailed, caring & her classes and workshops are always varied. Love her work and I often travel extensively to get to her workshops or classes. I can never get enough Rita.
Going to one of Rita's classes always include, technique, laughter, finding your own personal boundaries and trying to push yourself past those. Kay Ashcroft
Rita's philosophy about teaching
Rita has been teaching for over 12 years and guides students on a journey from the nurturing and fun stages of beginner level to those who are more experienced and looking for feedback and growth. Rita looks at the whole dancer, not just technique without artistic expression or feeling. She believes that teaching dance is more than learning vocabulary and drilling combinations, but supporting a student to develop their own ideas and voice and to become as versatile as possible. Sometimes she approaches things from a technical angle, other times, she is wildly creative. Rita is particularly skilled at deciphering the body and provide very specific feedback on posture and movement.
Rita is currently on hiatus from teaching, but may return...
