Watertown-Mayer Performing Arts Center

While masks are no longer mandated, we do encourage everyone to follow up-to-date CDC Guidelines for vaccinated and unvaccinated individuals. Our lobby is now open for pick up and drop off of students. We do discourage people from gathering in the lobby for extended periods of time. Please keep an eye on your parent portal and the studio website for any updates if this policy changes.


Moving into the Summer and Fall of 2021, RVDA students will be dancing in person.

However, River Valley Dance Academy has made alterations to its facility to allow for the best possible class participation. Attending class via ZOOM is an option for students this season should they ever feel symptomatic, to protect a compromised immune system, or to ensure their own safety. RVDA has developed a camera and audio system that allows for the highest quality student experience to join their peers in class. Please contact the studio for more info.

We will continue with our cleaning regiment implemented by our staff with chemical solutions by ECOLAB. Our online software system allows for accurate and comprehensive contact tracing, helping us adapt quickly as scientists discover how we should proceed during this critical time.


We acknowledge that some families have spent their time in quarantine curating specific social circles to limit their contact with the general public while still allowing for regular interactions with members of their community.

If you have a small group of individuals who are interested in private group classes with people from inside your social circle, River Valley Dance Academy has set aside some weekday and weekend hours for this type of experience.

For more information regarding available times, schedules, and instructors please email

Studio Owner, Jocelyn Braudt for more info.


If you are enrolled in classes at RVDA and are interested in recieving private instruction, please contact us at the link below.

River Valley Dance Academy has set aside some weekday and weekend hours for private instruction in a variety of dance styles with multiple members of our brilliant team of instructors. 

For more information about private instruction, please contact Jocelyn Braudt for a private instruction consultation. During this time, we will review the goals you are working towards at this time and we will make a determination on the instructor best fit for the skills you are seeking.

For your convenience, River Valley Dance Academy has migrated to an online registration and payment system for classes in the 2021 dance year. We are excited to continue our long standing commitment to transparency and information driven communication as we start this new journey together!
