Welcome to Utica Dance


Welcome to Utica Dance
The Utica Dance faculty is passionately committed to providing students with the opportunity to learn the art of dance in a positive, structured, and inspiring environment. Utica Dance is independently owned and operated and was formerly known as the Munson Williams Proctor Arts Institute Dance Program. We are proud of our long tradition of over forty five years providing the highest quality dance instruction in ballet, jazz, tap and modern dance.
Nancy, Lynn, Kathy and Sharon are excited to welcome new and returning students to our world of dance.
Our dance productions provide all students in the Children's and Pre-Professional Divisions with opportunities to perform in professional caliber shows that range from classic ballets to original contemporary dances. Our Teen/Adult Division offers introductory and intermediate classes in ballet, jazz and tap for students who wish to experience the joy and benefits of dance training at any age. All prospective students and parents are encouraged to email or call for advice on classes.
We invite all students and teachers to enhance their dance training by attending any of the workshops offered at our school throughout the year. Workshops and master classes are led by our distinguished faculty, staff and guest instructors. Discounts and payment plans available for students taking multiple classes and families with more than one dancer. Our annual membership opens August 1-25 for Fall 2020.
