Team members compete at three competitions per season, and leave each competition with meaningful memories that will last a lifetime. 

The Nutcracker

 

Since 2006, Uxbridge Dance Academy has been pleased to present biennial performances of The Nutcracker. Our students and teachers work hard to bring this enchanting story to life just in time for Christmas. The proceeds from these shows are donated to local charitable organizations.

 

Classes

Pre-Dance

Do you have a little one who loves to play ballerina? Creative Movement Pre-Dance classes bring play-dance from the living room into the studio without removing natural spontaneity. Movement, rhythm, shapes and improvisation are introduced in a lively and creative atmosphere.

All classes are taught by highly experienced and qualified instructors.

Jazz

Jazz dance is a combination of African dance forms, social dance styles such as Swing and Lindy Hop, Broadway performance styles and Ballet technique.  This eclectic mix creates an energetic, dramatic dance style that encourages the dancer to find the full range of their performance potential.  

Acro

Acro is a fun, dynamic and challenging combination of acrobatics and dance.  This discipline introduces and builds on basic tumbling skills and develops strength and flexibility. The dance component contributes to an exciting and artistic experience for your child.   

Classical Ballet

Ballet is one of the most beautiful forms of dance and provides a solid foundation for all dance disciplines. Ballet offers a wonderful means of artistic expression and is a must for the serious dancer. Our creative instruction explores and refines classical movements with sensitivity to each student's particular physical requirements. The syllabus includes free movement and traditional character work. Instructors are all highly qualified and certified and/or have extensive professional dance experience. 

Contemporary & Lyrical

Contemporary and Lyrical dance combine the fluidity of Ballet, the expressiveness of Jazz and the grounded movements of Modern and African dance techniques in a creative and dynamic dance experience.  The class focuses on using these techniques as a jumping-off point in encouraging students to find their unique self expression through movement. 

Tap

Classes combine the magic of rhythm with the exciting art of movement while emphasizing the fundamental Tap syllabus. Students explore pulse and tempo through sounds generated by the feet and hands. Development of each student's musicality and memory is encouraged through creative improvisation. 

Hip Hop

Kids know what this contemporary dance form is all about and they want to be able to perform those moves they see in their favourite videos! Your child will learn to move and groove with the best of them as they embrace the demands of this highly athletic and upbeat dance class.  

Adult Classes

Dance isn't just for little ones! Each year we offer an exciting roster of adult classes which provide a supportive yet challenging dance experience. It’s a fun and rewarding way to build energy, balance and coordination!​
