RDC Hip Hop Crews and RDC Academy


The "Rhiact" and "Rhimix" Hip Hop Crews  are coached by former pupil Rhiannon Watkins, an award winning Hip Hop Dancer and Teacher who has studied all styles of Hip Hop to the highest level.

The Junior and Senior Squads are selected from pupils of The Helen Laxton School of Dance during auditions at the start of the Autumn Term.

The squads then train to perform at dance shows, talent shows, charity events and competitions.

All three squads have competed at National level and are World Championship qualifiers


We now also have a training Academy, the RDC Academy for children aged from 6 years of age who are taught all of the various Hip Hop dance styles in preparation for entry into the Rhiact, Rhimix and Rhipaly dance crews.


We will be auditioning soon for our new Junior Crew "Rhiflex" aimed at children under 10 years of age.
