Riga Victoria a name held with pride.
Fostering the passion of dance in all our students, as well as encouraging confidence and health. Bone strength is increased as is the emotional psyche to cope with the daily stress of life. If everyone learnt to dance in the world, oh what a wonderful place it would be. Dance connects, creates friendships, grows self discipline, teaches patience and respect, increases the power of the mind, body and spirit.


Riga Victoria Dance Academy learns and grows just as much through our students. After 37 years of learning how to overcome obstacles, listening to what works best.....we have built a strong legacy of a system that truly works. That experience cannot be gained by any other school in only just a handful of years or moments.

Entrust and be relaxed that you are in capable hands. With Safe dance practices, Compulsory professional development, Anatomy studies, Pilates, Body Conditioning, examiner training and a system of dance education as recognised by the government, truly means, that you can have fun, enjoyment, and a "relaxed" mind that you are being taught not just well, but in a technique that was forged in an International Body of Dance systems.


Not afraid to say, we are the best, we will give you our all and be your guide in this massive dance industry. Quality is what counts.

So join us and see why we are and have been one of the best and longest running dance schools. 

Over 37 years of producing strong dancers that are successful in the Professional dance Industry and teaching field. RVDA dancers are continuing to do well and flourish in the wider world of dance.
