Raq-On Mission & Vision

Raq-On Dance provides dancers of all shapes, sizes, experience levels, ages, and abilities with a warm, encouraging environment that promotes positive self-esteem and body image. We have been fostering fearless curves in the Upper Valley for over a decade.

"Raq" Means Dance in Arabic. Raq-On Dance began serving students of the Northeast in 2004. In 2010, Raq-On Dance opened its first dedicated studio in Lebanon, NH. In 2015, Raq-On Dance moved to its newly-renovated location at 58 Bridge Street, White River Junction, Vermont (below the Main St Musuem).
