Our core values.


Art comes in many forms and can be found in everything we do and every bit of our history. It is diverse, special and telling of the times. It is what brings us all together.

The RAS is an open opportunity for art expression, learning and gathering in Ridgefield. We offer a space for learners and instructors alike with classes in Ballet, Hip Hop, Zumba, Baby & Me, Stand up and Improv Comedy, Partner Dancing, Painting, Private Tutoring and more coming. The RAS can be rented for meetings, receptions, private events and birthdays. Plus we throw our own events and parties monthly with onsite babysitting so you can relax and have fun!

We also have a Weekend Night Teen Lounge opening mid September furnished with seats, screens, snacks and systems. It's a safe and sober chill pad for 15-20yr olds with school ID's. Finally a place to go!

We call all of Ridgefield to become part of our space and fill our community calendar with events, classes, exhibits and expression. Your fresh ideas are welcome.


Learning is the currency of relevance and success. More than ever, our society’s expectation of knowledge and problem solving is rising. The American Dream is alive but like always, its achievement must be earned and that “success” is being redefined as we race against technology and changing economics to chase that dream.

The RAS has something for everyone. We offer an environment to find solutions to life’s ongoing academic, economic and social challenges for today's youth and adults alike.


Fun seems like a given in childhood, but how many of us discover the older we get the less it feels value we place on it for ourselves?

The RAS believes fun is the foundation of happiness, and the key to sanity. Making fun a top priority brings enthusiasm to otherwise challenging or mundane responsibilities. Fun is loving, enriching, inclusive, and allows us at any time to step back and tattoo on our hearts the moments that become our most favorite memories. Making fun the foundation of what we strive for at the RAS reminds us that “the good ‘ole days” are actually right now.


The RAS is established to provide a place of arts, learning and events granting access to artistic, social and educational experiences regardless of economic standing. This effort aims to maintain and enrich a true sense of community in and for Ridgefield.


208 Pioneer Street, Ridgefield, WA 98642.

The RAS is on the corner of Pioneer and Main streets, boasting over 2,600 square feet of second story space spread over two multipurpose spaces. Both studios have 14 foot ceilings and walls of large windows. The 1,600 square foot “Ballroom” has gorgeous Southern and Western views of the Wildlife Preserve, Lake River, and Oregon. The Western facing “Dining” room is 900 square feet in size, includes a full kitchen and service counter as well as 14 feet of mirrors and a ballet bar.
