Ultimate Dance Center
3234 S Florida Ave, Lakeland, FL 33803
My daughter danced at another studio in the area for 7 years. The best decision we ever made was coming to UDC 1 year ago. The students are given love, respect and encouragement no matter what level of dance they are at. My daughter has grown so much because of that. Jenn, Freddie, Kayloni and Jessica have a genuine passion for what they do!
Named “Best in Dance” for a reason!
After leaving another dance studio with both my girls we landed here but it wasn’t by chance. It is because we did our research! These owners want you to dance for them, and your school, and your community! They aren’t scared or selfish, they want your child to pursue all of their passions.
Professionally trained instructors!! Amazing instructors! Amazing dance families as well that all support each other. The most friendly knowledgeable front desk lady you’ll ever meet! Great kids! Centrally located! It’s the only choice in Lakeland! UDC!❤️
I have been dancing since the age of 3 and have been dancing competitively since I was 7 years old. I am now 13 years old and happier than I have ever been! It is no secret or surprise that the Florida dance market is highly competitive and thriving with amazing dance talent. Up until 2 years ago the opportunities for affordable, exemplary, diverse and professional dance instruction was obsolete in central Florida, particularly my home town of S. Lakeland. Walking into the Ultimate Dance Studio for the first time and being greeted by Freddie DeJesus was the most refreshing and enlightening experience I ever had. Jen Davis, Freddie, and the entire staff made me feel like family immediately! This studio is all about their students and teaching the best in DANCE OF ALL STYLES, FORMS and GENRES! Since my enrollment I've been exposed to ALL forms of dance and stage performance not just competition dance and winning trophies. I began learning things that even as a veteran competitive dancer had sadly and shockingly never learned from the other studios I previously attended. I learned things such as time steps in tap, improv, theatrical performance, and most importantly finally being free to express my own dance individuality!!! I finally had the opportunity to learn that hip hop was so much more than twerking and that even I could do lyrical and contemporary! I have never once been denied to try something out of my comfort zone or talent spectrum at Ultimate Dance Studio. I have not one single negative thing to say about Ultimate Dance Studio! After 8 years of searching and trial and error with less desirable establishments it was a breath of fresh air to finally find MY dance home! If your child or even you (adult classes offered here too) is looking to pursue a career in dance there is no other studio in town that will nurture, guide, and help pave the path for their dance dreams and desires!
My daughter and I took a giant leap of faith when we decided to leave the studio that we had been at since 2010. It's a very scary thing to make change like that when your daughter is a competitive dancer and has made so many friends but it had to happen. Boy, am I SO VERY happy that we made that leap! I just can't put into words how happy we both are with this studio. This studio is progressive and relevant. They treat their students and the parents with respect! It is a loving and most important to me a positive atmosphere. My daughter actually loves going to dance class again. She is eager to learn and push herself to higher limits. I've seen such a positive change in her in just the short time that we've been here. UDC where have you been all my life? :-) It's been too long of a wait to have a studio like this in Lakeland!! The studio is clean and always welcoming. They have free Wifi, access to watch classes live using an app for your smartphone (no more battling to peep through a tiny window), access to fresh cold water fountain (especially useful when moms like me forget to give their child a drink), 3 studios to accommodate 3 classes at one time! You can even purchase dance wear there!! AND even better they offer fitness classes and adult classes so while I wait I could potentially join in on the fun or fitness as well! UDC, you've outdone yourselves. Please keep up the good work! I love, love, love you guys!
