Fall 2021 Weekly Class Offerings

Fall 2021 Registration will be announced the week of August 1, 2021

Class Schedule is posted at the bottom of this page.

At U Can Danz! Dance Company we strive to provide a positive and fun atmosphere for your child to learn dance. We not only take pride in teaching them dance technique and dance routines, but we make it a priority to build their self-esteem. We provide age-appropriate dance costumes, music, and choreographing that is hard to find anywhere else. We work hard at organizing many performances and fun events. Your dancer will always be learning something new and get the chance to perform multiple times throughout the dance year. We are a professional Dance Company and produce amazing results and life long memories. 

 

At U Can Danz! Dance Company we are very proud of the environment we have created. A sense of community, friendships, and compassion come first. We are proud of the talented dancers we have trained and the accolades they have been awarded. However, we are even more proud of the people they are. We interact with many other studios, and we continue to see a difference in the attitude and humbleness of our students. Our dancers continue to be kind, humble, and very talented. UCD is a fun, warm and safe atmosphere for your dancer to continue to grow their passion for dance – no matter what level they decide to dance at!

ALL-STARS

 

Perfect for the dancers that are sampling different sports and/or have a busy family schedule that only allows for a once-a-week class. This is a recreational program. All classes meet once a week.

 

ALL-STARS perform at our four main Studio Performances:
Holiday Recital, Timberwolves Halftime, Nickelodeon Universe Performance, and our Spring Recital

ALL-STARS will learn 4-5 different routines throughout the year and only need one costume and
one pair of dance shoes for the entire year

 

Within our ALL-STAR classes, dancers will learn to follow along in a class, work together as a team, be introduced to multiple dance styles, along with learning stage presence! Throughout the year they will advance their dancing, stretching and technique abilities accordingly. Dancers learn in a fun, fast paced environment that focuses on building the child’s self-esteem, not only as a dancer, but also as a person and performer. With the latest music and dance choreographing, your dancers will really enjoy coming to class each week. All things are taught in a fun, creative, compassionate environment.
