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.

Twinkle Babies classes for 2-3 year olds - Our exclusive Twinkle Babies™ – ages 2-3: a thirty-minute introductory dance class that is unique and valuable in the dance industry. The secret to the class is that it is structured and fun! It contains ballet, tap, and creative movement. Young dancers learn the necessary steps while learning how to follow direction and imitate movement in a positive environment. Engaging music is used to get these little dancers inspired to dance. The use of props such as “dancing bears,” hula hoops and maracas, enables the young dancers to use their imagination, creativity and, most of all, have fun!

Twinkle Star classes for ages 3-5-Twinkle Star Dance is an age specific 55 minute class containing ballet, tap and jazz/creative movement. The purpose of the class is to introduce young dancers to the three styles of dance and inspire movement and creativity within a positive environment. Dancers also learn basic steps and terminology in all three styles. For example, all dancers will learn what a “plié” is and how to demonstrate one. The use of fun, age appropriate music engages the young dancers’ minds and bodies. The use of props such as maracas for the “freeze dance” makes the end of class the most fun!

Show Stars 1 for ages 6-8/ Show Stars 2 for ages 9 & up-Twenty minutes each of ballet, tap, and jazz, it gives the children a fantastic base and exposure to different types of dance. We have found that this “combination” technique helps to keep the kids excited, interested, and focused for the entire 60 minute period.

Acrobatic Arts Certified Acrobatics Arts for all ages consists of various mat exercises for strengthening, agility, extreme flexibility, exciting jumps and tumbling skills. Exams are optional.
