All of our programs are designed to give your child the opportunity to explore a variety of movement concepts and basic skills in a controlled, safe and positive learning environment. The hope is that each child will develop self-esteem, confidence, poise and coordination within their own individual movement framework.
Rita Tottenham has been teaching all forms of dance, gymnastics, baton twirling and fitness throughout the Lower Naugatuck Valley and surrounding towns for 60 years.
Rita developed the "Rollin' Rascal Pre-school Movement Program" in 1980. She designed this program specifically for "Moms & Tots" as an introduction to the proper fundamentals of dance, gymnastics and fitness. In 1983 Rita founded Rita Tottenham Studios, LLC. presently located at 94 Main Street in Seymour, Connecticut. The Studio is centrally located within the town center and is easily accessible by Route 67 and Route 8.
The "Rita Tottenham Dancers" Performance Group have performed at Walt Disney World and Universal Studios in Florida and Six Flags in New Jersey. In addition, they have performed at the 1995 World Special Olympics held at Yale Bowl in New Haven, CT. Throughout the year, the "Rita Tottenham Dancers" are active in community service. They perform at various convalescent homes, local town parades, conduct fundraisers and other various charitable events.
