“I’m 7 and have been at UDC for a few years. I get serious in Ballet, you have to be on time & respectful, kind & helpful to others. I love my friends at UDC! It is going good so far you know, it can be hard at times but I love it – you just hold your breath and take a big shot and go for it! I will keep memories and I will be a great student & I would be delighted to meet new friends at UDC!”

“I love UDC! In my Hip Hop class I have learned how to be confident in myself. Ms. Tiffany is nice & friendly and always encourages us to do well and NEVER give up! I a little ballerina in training, Mrs. Kristen has taught me to point my toes and fifth position. Whenever I mess up she always say “try again”.

“I have been at Ultimate Dance Center for about 2 years now. I enjoy UDC very much. I came from a bad studio before & UDC really opened up my eyes on Dance. I take multiple classes like Pointe, Ballet, Hip Hop, Jazz Contemporary, and Leaps/Turns. I am also on the UDC Competition Team. UDC is amazing for all ages, skill levels & genders. They really challenge their students and greatly improve on their dancing. One major thing they taught me at UDC is confidence. They taught me to be confident in my dancing and as a person. They really care for you & want to see you achieve greatness. I am so glad I joined UDC because it is a very positive environment. There is no judging & everyone is just really positive. If people ask me where a good studio to go to is, I will always say Ultimate Dance Center!”
– Alyse Milliken, (13), UDC Competition Team Soloist & Student
“I love dancing at UDC because they are so nice. I have made so many great memories and friends. My Ballet teacher Mrs. Suzanne has taught me so much. My contemporary teacher Ms. Kayloni had taken me so far in the dace world, I’m learning so much. I love dancing at Ultimate Dance Center.”

“Hello, I’m Kyndra & I’ve been going to Ultimate Dance Center for almost 3 years & I’ve had the best experience!!! I take Acrobat Arts, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre & Contemporary. I’ve learned how to do a back walk-over, splits, tried acting, dance improvisation, and much much more. This place feels like another home and I can talk to anyone. I worked on The Ultimate Nativity Story and in the show I was an Angel. Having an experience like this is so amazing, I can’t even explain. This is my first show ever and playing a part in this has been so cool – I want to do another one! So, if you’re looking for a place for you, your son or daughter, UDC is the one. Have you ever wondered why we are called a CENTER & not a STUDIO? It’s because the teachers are teaching us to be better & improved dancers daily for all ages & levels. I’ve learned so much from Mr. Freddie DeJesus, Ms. Alicia Boyte Allen, Mrs. Kristen Howell & Ms. Kayloni Perez; join us & become an ULTIMATE dancer!”
– Kyndra Salopek (12), UDC Contemporary & Acro Dancer
“I really like dance because it makes me want to be better and improve with practice, focusing on the right steps – I really like Hip Hop, how it’s fast and you can freestyle, just getting to dance in so many styles is awesome!”
– Ady Boothby (8), UDC Student
“I’ve been taking Ballet with Mr. Freddie for a year and I love it. He has taught me a lot about ballet & helped me grow as a dancer. I am looking forward to what this season has in store!

“I have been a dancer for a few years now, and I would like to say many thanks to Freddie DE Jesus for all his hard work and dedication he showed while teaching me. I have danced with Freddie in Just Fierce productions, Florida Dance Theater, Arts in Motions, and so much more and he has taught me many solos which I went to go compete and scored really well. Freddie just doesn’t teach dance, he teaches respect, acceptance, and patience, all in his professional choreography, and he is such and amazing inspiration to us all. Freddie teaches with a drive and dedication and he gets his work done, and he brings his visions to life on the stage as soon as he starts his choreography.”
Freddie is truly a credit to the dance world and I plan on dancing with him all the way through college. Teachers do make a difference, and having teachers pets…. well everyone is Freddie’s pet because he cares about all students while recognizing them as more than just his students, we all become one. So thank you Freddie DE Jesus for not just the dance lessons but for putting me out there and giving me the opportunity to perform what you have taught me, it is truly an honor to be your student.
