• Mission

    Welcome to The Redding Arts Project, a Home for Artists. TheRAP School of Dance offers instruction in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, and Contemporary. TheRAP School of Musical Theatre offers instruction in children's show choir and Musical Theatre. Our classes range in age from 2.5 through Adult. We are the official training school of Redding City Ballet and Redding Theatre Company. The Redding Arts Project, where beautiful talents flourish!

  • Philosophy

    We value small class sizes for individualized instruction.

    We focus on teaching correct technique incorporated into age-appropriate activities.

    We teach to the whole dancer with an anatomy-based curriculum to ensure safety of growing bodies.

    Our instructors have been trained in the Balanchine-style of ballet by faculty of the Pacific Northwest Ballet School.

  • History

    The Redding Arts Project, formerly Redding Ballet Academie, was established in January 2012. Artistic Director Diana Christensen's vision for The RAP is to create a home for artists, with quality instruction in dance, voice and theatre. 

  • The shows here are beautiful, fun, and interesting. They are an amazing community event definitely worth going to. Don't miss The Nutcracker- it's my favorite!

  • This company is amazing! Just saw the Nutcracker yesterday and I have seen it performed by larger companies who did not have as much talent as RCB! I encourage everyone to get out and see them...you won't be disappointed!
