For those students who would like private instruction, private instruction
is available at U Can-DANCE. Our policy and our belief is that ALL
TECHNIQUE SHOULD BE TAUGHT DURING CLASS TIME. As such, we do not encourage
specialized and private instruction to teach our in-class core curriculum.
However, if a student requires specialized choreography or "clean-up"
sessions to fine-tune choreography in preparation for competition, we do
encourage private lessons and are able to incorporate private lessons around
our class time.

addition to areas of dance, the students also have the opportunity to

hosting various camps, our instructors will also be available to travel to
your location for integration into your summer camp programs. Just let us
know what you need and we will MAKE IT HAPPEN! Your organization can choose
one of our pre-designed camps or assist in the designing of your own camp.

U Can-DANCE Buddy Program
Periodically throughout the year, students will be allowed to bring a "dance
buddy" to class. The "dance buddy" can be a friend or relative who is
around the same age as the student. The "dance buddy" will be allowed to
participate in class with the student. We feel that this allows the student
to expose her friends and family members to something that she likes to do
and something that she finds important.
Are you a student looking for a place to rehearse or practice for an upcoming audition? Are you an instructor of dance, voice, music, or the martial arts and have yet to find a permanent home? Do you need a temporary space or a long term contract? Then, call us. U Can-DANCE is pleased to offer you several viable options to assist you in your rehearsal space needs. Whether you want to lease a space for a few hours, or a few weeks, we can assist. Our standard hourly rental fee is $50 per hour with a two-hour minimum rental requirement. For information on longer rental contracts, please contact us. We’ll be happy to assist you.
Community Service Projects
U Can-DANCE believes that our studio and our students are a part of a larger
picture which includes the community in which we live. As such, throughout
the dance year, we choose special community-based projects in which our
students have an opportunity to give back to the McKinney area. These
projects are designed to be of service and to promote civil responsibility.
D.A.N.C.E. (Dancers Anointed-N-Christ Everyday) is a Christian-based independent praise dance ministry located in McKinney, TX. We are a non-profit community-based praise dance company that puts the modern-day spin on a biblical custom of praise and worship through movement, and as it relates to the performing arts. We strive to be living examples of the Gospel.
The vision and mission of D.A.N.C.E. is to unite Christian performers from churches throughout Collin County and the Metroplex for the common purpose of promoting Christ’s teachings and expanding the Kingdom through praise and movement. Our message is simple, we are UNITED for one purpose: to build the Kingdom of God via the Performing Arts. Our company is improving the lives of students and allowing them to meet, unite and share with each other the awesome art of Praise Dance.
Our Kingdom building and expansion comes in the form of performances throughout our community. We are available to perform at fairs, community centers, schools, and of course, churches. We also conduct workshops for praise dancers, as well as their leaders.
D.A.N.C.E. choreographs its dance, mime, flag and streamer routines to the latest Christian Rock, Rap and R & B. We also use traditional Christian and Gospel music as our building block.
D.A.N.C.E. is always seeking performers (i.e. mimes, lyricists, dancers et.) choreographers and costumers who are community-minded and who wish to give back and assist in the building of the Kingdom. We are always auditioning in an effort to include all who want to be a part of this explosive community-based organization. We especially seek dancers who are:
