Here at River City Performing Arts, all classes are limited in size because we feel that individual attention allows us the opportunity to help instill in our students positive traits such as high self esteem, self discipline, responsibility, team work and pride. We feel that most goals are obtainable through hard work. The music and costumes chosen are always age appropriate, as we feel very strongly about having a positive influence on our students.
