Testimonials

No words can explain how much time, patience, and effort Ms. Leta puts into making the girls great dancers! I would recommend anyone with a daughter that enjoys dance, and ballet to join this team.

Kenniqua G

This dance school is where I learned so many life skills beyond dance as a young girl in the early 80s. I learned style and coordination, turn-taking, patience, the art of expression, you name it!- and I made so many friends! It did more for my self-esteem as a little black girl than anyone will ever know! I always looked forward to dancing classes in my own community with other girls who looked like me. And I was thrilled when I found out a few years ago that Uptown was still in operation with Leta, the founder, who was also my own instructor back then. I would definitely recommend Uptown to any parent who’s interested in dance classes for their child. Keep up the great work Leta!!!
