Important TYSOD Update – May 2020:

Although the governor has announced that many businesses may open up, realistically we need further guidelines to modify our in-studio operations before re-opening for the health and safety of our students, faculty and staff. We also acknowledge that the transition from stay-at-home to back in action will occur in phases. At this time and into the immediate future, TYSOD and RDT will continue to provide great content and live stream options for all dancers on our ONLINE STUDIO page. We are looking forward to the day we see you back in the studio!

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.

Straight From The Heart

The Modern Company of Roswell Dance Theatre spent many weeks hard at work preparing its annual spring concert, Straight From the Heart. Sadly, we will no longer be able to present this fantastic modern dance showcase at the Tolbert Yilmaz School of Dance main studio on April 26, 2020.

Straight From the Heart is a wonderful way for our Modern Company dancers to share inspiration with the community through artistic modern and contemporary dance. Please support the company if you can by purchasing the 2020 show t-shirt or making a direct donation.
