During this unique time in our history, all artists, especially dancers, have learned to use their innate skills to thrive during challenging times. Like so many others, we have learned to pivot to continue providing opportunities to our community, near, in person, and far, virtually. Utica Dance has adjusted the schedule for in-person classes and offers Zoom options for most classes. The Utica Dance faculty remains passionately committed to providing students with the opportunity to learn the art of dance in a positive, structured, and inspiring environment.Learn More
