Upbeat Dance Center provides an exciting, professional, and nurturing environment of dance education
for our community. The studio features classes in Jazz Funk, Hip Hop, B-Boy, Lyrical/Contemporary, Ballet POP, Creative Movement, and Tap. The studio lends itself to the bold, dynamic, and expressive dancer. Our dancers are passionate about rhythm and movement through musical expression.
Our lessons are designed to build the students' confidence and self discipline in a comfortable, warm setting. The dancers will learn to connect to their movement through kinetic awareness as well as from their emotions. Our studio always offers groundbreaking and enriching choreography. Our teachers have had choreography at the Kennedy Center, have been on "So You Think You Can Dance", "Step Up 2-3D", and members of local companies such as "Contempra Dance Theater
" , "Melange Contemporary Dance Company
", "Rennie Harris Dancers", and on the 76er's Dunk Squad. Classes are only taught by either experienced, well educated teachers or up and coming professionals. Students at Upbeat are taught to be knowledgeable and well-rounded dancers. Our performances and observations will be highlighted and used as the culmination of hard work and training.
There will be a recital with affordable costumes in June. The emphasis is always on ability and effort. Performances will always be positive, enriching experiences that will be a memorable and cherished part of your child's participation in dance.
Upbeat Dance Company is our performing and competition company.
This group of dancers is a high energy, dedicated group of dancers that has made dance the most important after school activity. They take at least four classes of technique a week and have rehearsals on Fridays and Saturdays. Auditions TBA.
We look forward to turning dancers of all ages into performers and artists alike.
