Welcome!

UBDC provides our community with the highest quality dance instruction available for almost ten years. We teach: technique, expression, perseverance, strength in character, performance quality, and passion.

The teachers at Up Beat are professionally trained, certified instructors whose energy and talent is contagious. Our lessons are designed to build the students' confidence and self discipline in a comfortable, warm setting. Our dancers learn to connect to their movement through kinetic awareness as well as from their emotions. Up Beat's teachers offer groundbreaking and enriching choreography throughout the year.

Up Beat features two award winning competition companies. There is a "Mini" company for younger dancers and a "Junior/Senior" company for older dancers. These groups of dancers are devoted and talented dancers and have made dance their priority. They take at least four to six technique classes a week in addition to weekend rehearsals. Auditions are every Spring. Please see Lauren for more details.

We look forward to turning dancers of all ages into performers and artists alike.
