Uptown Dance Gives Back to Flood Relief Efforts

We hope everyone is okay after the devastation that is Hurricane/Tropical Storm Harvey.  We are extremely lucky and grateful that our rehearsal studio, Uptown Dance Centre, sustains no damages and all the staff and company members are safe.

In this time of desperate needs for so many, including those in the dance and arts community, Uptown Dance Centre would like to help and contribute to the relief efforts.

For the month of September 2017, all proceeds from Uptown Dance Centre’s morning open classes (Monday/Wednesday classes with Adrian, Tuesday class with Alex and Friday class with Amy) will be donated to American Red CrossMorning open classes will resume on September 4, 2017.

To pay for classes or to donate to American Red Cross, please visit:

To artists and dance organizations who have lost their class or rehearsal spaces due to flood damages, Uptown Dance Centre would be happy to work with you to provide practice space at our studio.  Please email for more information.

As Uptown Dance Company is part of the Big Give Houston 2017, please visit Big Give Houston to support non-profit organizations that are helping with the flood relief efforts.

The road to recovery can be long and difficult, but we are #HoustonStrong and #TexasStrong, and we will get through this together.  Please continue to stay safe and let us know if UDC can help in any way.


We have concluded Uptown Dance Centre’s campaign of Giving through Dance, and we raised closed to $1,000.00 for the hurricane/flood relief efforts.  We sincerely thank everyone who came to class during the month of September 2017 and contributed to our campaign.  And HUGE “thank yous” to our teachers who donated their earnings to the campaign.
