YOUTH DANCE COMPANY

Welcome to Upside Down Dance Academy’s youth dance company. We are delighted that you are considering to become a part of Upside Down Dance Academy and thank you for selecting what we consider a life changing experience for your child.

Dance is a tool that can be used to stimulate and develop creativity and talent but can also be used to tell a story and teach discipline. Throughout the years it has been proven that dance helps build confidence and character, all our teachers have either supported students to reach this stage or had the opportunity to witness it. At Upside Down Dance Academy, we guarantee a positive and productive learning as well as safe environment. We encourage parents and students to talk to teachers to help us achieve all our students goals and help us improve our services.
