The dance studio is a newly renovated, state of the art, over 9,000 square foot facility, making it one of the largest dance studios in the greater Orlando area. We have 5 dance studios with raised wood floors and large windows for viewing. Parents and students have access to a break room, a reception room for waiting family members, and an elevator to the second floor. A snack machine is in the break room and drinks are for sale in the front office.
Parents are invited and encouraged to watch class the first week of October, December, February, and picture week. A certificate is presented at the end of the year to all students with perfect attendance. Also, during the month of April, each student takes a class picture in their recital costume during their class time. Parents have the opportunity to purchase individual pictures of their child in their recital costume. Pictures are done by a private photography company.
UPAC is proud to offer you a professional background of experienced teaching, current trends in dance and modern teaching methods, and a dance recital at the end of the year to illustrate students progress. Video of the recital is available for purchase by a private video production company. Flowers, snacks, and drinks are also available for purchase
as a fundraiser for UPAC’s Competitive Companies.
UPAC also offers a dancewear store, The Dancebox, that is located within the studio for all your dancewear needs. We offer a variety of discount dancewear such as leotards, tights, warm-up suits, ballet skirts, ballet shoes, jazz shoes, tap shoes, and all sorts of UPAC attire including jackets, sweatshirts, t-shirts, sweat pants, dance bags, and garment bags for sizes ranging from preschool age through young adult.
For more serious dancers, we also offer competitive programs designed for students desiring to rehearse specialty routines for the purpose of competing at regional and national competitions.
