Rivertown Dance Academy Inc. provides a safe, welcoming and inclusive environment for all.

Our dance programs are designed to inspire creativity, build confidence, & improve balance and coordination. Dancers learn to enjoy the thrill of performing and experience a healthy level of competition.

We are a community comprised of dedicated, loyal, and compassionate dance educators that support one another, our dancers, their families and surrounding communities by encouraging a healthy mindset and a positive outlook.

Dance lessons are life lessons; and through regular training, dancers learn accountability, team work, and resilience. We can achieve more than our pre-conceived limitations.

Our enthusiasm is felt beyond the walls of the studio. The positive influence our programs have will carry dancers through life’s many challenges and obstacles.

Our Team

Each member of our team brings years of experience working in studios, schools, as professional dancers, and in the community. 

Laura Dufour & Catherine Cristofaro, Directors
Teaching Faculty, 2023-2024

My daughter Avery has danced with RDA for 2 years now, as well as attended the amazingly fun summer break dance camps. Aside from the talented, patient, and creative teaching staff at RDA, they are the most kind and welcoming dance studio. 2 weeks into her first season at RDA my daughter broke her arm, and the way that her teacher and teachers assistants welcomed her back and helped her to feel comfortable dancing again, meant the world to our family. More recently, our family has suffered a tragedy and the way that the RDA team has supported our family has been incredible. RDA is more than a dance academy, they’re like family.

My daughter has been dancing at RDA since she was 3 years old. She is now 15 and dance has become an integral part of her life. Dancing at RDA helped bring her out of her shell at the young age of 3 and has helped shape her into the confident dancer and person she is today. From the first day we dropped her off we felt confident that all the teachers and staff would have her best interest in mind. This is a safe place to leave your child then watch as they learn to love the art of dance and become confident on stage and in life. I highly recommend RDA as all of their teachers truly instill a love of dance in them, while giving them the confidence to pursue dance in which ever capacity they choose.

RDA is a safe, nurturing and welcoming environment for young dancers to learn and grow as artists. It is a place where safe creative risks are encouraged and facilitated by dedicated staff members, who have become like family to us. I and my three children have all been/continue to be students at this studio, and have had amazing experiences. We are proud to have RDA represent the performing arts in Amherstburg and will continue to support the studio and all their dancers and faculty moving forward.
