About Rise Studios

Dance and Performing Arts Schools in Watford and Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. We offer classes in ballet, tap, modern, contemporary, street dance, LAMDA (Drama), singing and Performing Arts. Our students get the opportunity to perform at local events throughout the year. Exams are offered twice a year and our Summer show is Bi-Annually at the Watford Colosseum or the Watford Palace Theatre. We offer two Summer schools each year. One is Musical Theatre and the other is our Professional Dance Week. We also often offer themed Half term workshops, so please check our Holiday Camp page for details of those. You will also find our teachers onboard P&O Cruises putting on workshops and performances with the children onboard.

We have a 100% pass rate in all our Dance and Drama exams, with the majority of students gaining Merits and Distinctions. Past students have gone on to train at Laine Theatre Arts, Arts Educational, Urdang Academy and Stage Works Studios amongst others! Claire Greenwood, the principal of RISE, was a Laine Theatre Arts Graduate and professional dancer for over 10 years. You can find out more about her story on our teachers page.

At the end of this term my daughter will be leaving Rise, hopefully with her Gold LAMDA, as she moves on to college. Georgina has been with Rise for over 10 years, joining to be a ballerina or maybe a tap dancer. She has been given the opportunity to perform in many venues at a variety of events. Thoroughly enjoying performing arts, collecting medals at Drama festivals and of course her LAMDA awards. THANK-YOU. I wish Rise Studios continued success inspiring young people and supporting positive self-esteem and confidence.
