Every year we aim to produce several shows with our students...
... these range from variety shows, social performances and fundraising concerts for charities.
During the summer we also construct a week long summer project with young people of all ages. This is a week of specific classes and workshops that lead to a show within a week. We also produce an annual Christmas Show which is always a wonderful production for our students to be involved in.
Every show is designed around the abilities of our students to showcase their individual talents.
The staff at Uplift are continually thinking of new show concepts and we look forward at seeing you at our next production. Keep an eye our website for future promotions!
We have a range of classes running throughout the week, currently available at three locations: Carrickfergus, Larne and Greenisland. The three classes are designed to help fulfil our objective and mission statement, which is to increase self-confidence and self-esteem.
We cover all varieties of dance. These consist of Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Modern, Hip-hop and many more. In each class we teach you how to warm up your body correctly so as not to hurt yourself, you also learn how to stretch and cool down.
Our students enjoy the friendly learning environment and the positive teaching styles of our dance instructors.

This class is designed to find each student's unique voice. We start with a thorough warm-up to expand the vocal range and to increase breath support.
The class then uses these principles to work on songs they have chosen and are given positive feedback and critiques in order to help them develop their natural talent. Even in this group setting, time is given to help each student.
