Welcome to Rhee Gold's Dance Life

Our mission is to sweep the dance world with a wave of “positiveness” that takes us all to a place where teachers, dancers, their parents and the general public realize that the dance experience is about an awesome journey of learning and sharing. It makes the next generation more confident and appreciative of discipline, hard work, dedication and so many other positive life skills. Let’s also make it so the kids don’t have to worry about pleasing the adults in their lives by being the best. Let’s simply allow them to experience the joy that dance is. Have a great day—Rhee
