2019 Summer Boot Camps

Our motto is "We Transform-. Youth into Stars" and the Academy's purpose is to do just that; to take you the adult dancer or any child age 3 and up and give them the professional training that they would not be able to get otherwise. Why? Because the Uptown Dance Academy has an 20 year old accelerated training system that has a 90% success rate, also we have affordable rates.

Our unique training system always starts with intense body conditioning. It includes an orchestrated combination of classes that include Certified Ballet and Acrobatics as well as fusion by Ms Robin our founder. Fusion incorporates Ballet, Contemporary, jazz, modern, and Katherine Dunham technique. Our system prepares you for the stage instantly. We have performance opportunities 3 times a year in our State of the Art Productions. We have an Elite Dance Team for youth and an Adult Company that performs and competes.
