See What Other's Are Saying!


I started with RSD in their recreational class at Llantrisant when I was 6, I am now almost 21. Within this time I have received endless encouragement and dedication from all of the coaches at RSD. The coaches are amazing, and the facilities are just as good! In 2015, myself and my team mates placed 10th in the World at the Worlds Dance Competition in Florida. This would not have been possible without the passion that Pam and Emma have for Dancing and the commitment which they show towards all of their dancers.

I would highly recommend RSD to anyone looking to start Dance, Cheer or Gymnastics, whether its just for fun or to achieve world titles! This has definitely been the best decision I have ever made!
