UDA Staff

What’s UDA staff all about?

Prior to summer camp, the UDA staff undergoes extensive training so that every camp receives the same top notch instruction and camp experience. They are educated on the most up to date trends and safety practices, plus they are Level 2 background checked and knowledgeable about concussions. The UDA staff are simply the best and will ensure that your team leaves camp with an unforgettable experience!

Do you love to dance? Do you enjoy teaching, traveling, and working with dance teams?  If you have a spirited personality and you are eager to share your passion of dance with others, this could be the job for you.
