Rise Dance+Lab is here to service the dancing, or soon-to-be-dancing, children and families of Portland, Oregon. While it’s sister studio, Vega Dance+Lab, fulfilled a need for adults to continue dancing, Rise is a dance studio for any child ages 3-14.
Our little dancing tinies will be learning the very basics and foundations of dance through a playful half hour of class. The more classes they take, the quicker they will start to grasp the concept of dancing. In these classes, we will focus on basic body movements, learning to take instruction in a dance studio environment, learning rhythm and listening to music. Learn more about Dancers Ages 3 - 5
Here, we start develop a sense of self-power and esteem to carry the dancer through their journey, whether it’s a short foray into the dance forest, or a longer more disciplined adventure. We want to focus on developing a strong sense of respect for dance, for others, and for the dancer themselves. Having this is first and foremost to becoming a good dance student.

Once the basics are covered with this group (etiquette, format, dance basics), we will really get them dancing! We don’t believe in “watering down” the choreography at all. These kids will be learning much the same type of choreography that our adults learn over at Vega Dance+Lab. After all, many young dancers aspire to go there and take class but are too young.

Rise Dance+Lab is here to service the dancing, or soon-to-be-dancing, children and families of Portland, Oregon. While it’s sister studio, Vega Dance+Lab, fulfilled a need for adults to continue dancing, Rise is a dance studio for any child ages 3-18. We want to go back to the beginning, and offer the same type of fun, happy, and urban atmosphere to the cool tots and teens of this town and beyond!
Our goal is to teach and grow a passion for all styles of dance, starting with the basics, all the way up to nurturing the trained and experienced young dancer. Whether you want to dance for a few months, or decide to pursue dance more competitively, we will have classes for you.
Grow with us! Rise Dance+Lab is going to be borrowing the studio floor of Vega Dance+Lab until we can find a more permanent facility that is also close by! Our schedule we have now reflects the times available to us when the studio is not in use by the adults of Vega, so once we move, we can offer up many more classes, styles, and levels! Get in on the ground floor with us, and become part of our dance family! We have created quite the close-knit community at Vega Dance+Lab, and we intend to welcome all of you, parents and kids alike, with open arms at Rise.
