Congratulations to our students who recently presented at our Open House!

Funkateers take a bow

We closed out our 3rd semester at the Urban Artistry Dance Academy with our Open House.  The Open House is a great opportunity to learn more about Urban Artistry’s mission and what we do at the Academy.  Instructors at the academy speak about the dance styles, history, and concepts they teach as well as answer questions from students and parents alike.
