Welcome to the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance,
Home of the Roswell Dance Theatre.


Dance with us! Be inspired. Inspire others, and dance.

The Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance programs meet the wide-ranging needs of dancers from preschoolers to today’s thriving professionals.

High-quality dance training benefits all students in the areas of physical development, posture, poise and grace. The intangible benefits of confidence, pride and discipline develop in parallel as students experience our programs.

I am ready for the stage, but I need to make sure it is ready for me.

HUGS From Young Choreographers is Sept. 13-14

Top level RDT Ballet Company members will host this annual charity event at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance main building. HUGS showcases original choreography in three benefit performances, allowing RDT members to share their talents and show the community how effective young people can be when they join together to make an impact.

This year the dancers are raising money for the MDE School, a private special needs school in the East Cobb area whose mission is to provide a loving environment for all children with delayed communication and language processing skills.

Join us for this wonderful event and support our dancers as they experience the importance of social acceptance and the joy of unconditional giving!

No tickets for this event – we just ask for a $5 donation at the door.

Silent auction opens 1/2 hour before each show.
