How it started

Urban-Expression is determined to give young aspiring dancers opportunities to grow and excel at dance. We want to give all dancers opportunities to grow their skills so they can become better dancers and choreographers.  We realized a common issue amongst young, amateur and semi-professional dancers. Many talented dancers want to become better choreographers and dancers but they are unable to receive any teaching experience or opptunities as they are overlooked by most dance studios. One of the main reasons Urban-Expression was started was to bridge the gap for dancers for those dancers who want experience and those dancers who can’t get any experience. Urban-Expression is dedicated to further building the dance community in Ontario and giving back to the community.

VISION

Our Motto

Urban-Expression is determined to give all skill leveled dancers  opportunities and experiences which will help them grow and excel at dance in their dance specialization. Urban-Expression is devoted to further building the dance community in Ontario and giving back to the community.

Our Vision

Urban Expression was founded on the basis of creating a dance community that anyone can be part of no matter what style of dance they specialize in or skill level.  Urban-Expression wants to give amateur, semi-professional and professional dancers opportunities to take and teach dance classes. We offer quality dance classes by teachers who are excited and dedicated to teaching all skill level dancers and are determined to spread knowledge they posses. Urban-Expression dance classes will always be affordable for people to attend as we are dedicated to providing the best dance classes at the most affordable prices.
