Revolution Dance and Academy of the Arts is East Mesa's most unique dance studio and has been honored as an ADCC Studio of Excellence! RDA opened in 2015, founded by our Owner and Director, Ashley Smith. Revolution offers recreational dance classes for students as young as 18 months all the way up to adults of any age, as well as adaptive dance classes for children and adults with special needs! Dancers also have opportunities to perform with RDA's Performance Team, or audition to compete as part of our award-winning Fierce Dance Company.


After obtaining her Masters Degree in Education, Ashley opened up the academic sectors of Revolution in 2016. RDA offers accredited programs for Preschool, Kinder Prep, and K-12 Homeschoolers who train Pre-Professionally. All employees at Revolution are licensed or highly qualified in their area of instruction, which makes RDA the only dance studio in Mesa capable of accepting ESA funds granted to families seeking services from private institutions.


What sets RDA apart is our culture. Our teachers foster a loving, supportive, enriching, and positively challenging environment where every child can succeed, and families are always valued. At Revolution, everyone is family! Come experience the difference and see why we have been voted the #! studio in the East Valley! Your trial class is always free!
