United Dance Productions saw its humble beginnings in Suzette Harvey’s backyard in thesummer of 1990, with a diverse group of dancers from the island’s dance schools. In 1992, itofficially opened its doors as a two-tier organization with a dance school and company offeringall disciplines of dance: ballet, tap, jazz, modern and introduced hip-hop to the island. Dancerswere invited from all over the island to rehearse material that had been influenced by theBroadway show Sarafina. Later, A Tribute to Nelson Mandela was staged to sell out audiencesfor three consecutive weekends. This would be the start to what is now a thirty-year legacy.
UDP has been a staple in the community, offering free dance performances at Harbor Night, thePremier’s Concert, the Bermuda Day Parade, church events as well as offering free dance classesto students in our Jr. Company. We have been chosen to represent Bermuda at Carifesta on twoseparate occasions, showcasing Bermuda’s talent. Many of our students who have chosen topursue the arts as a career are now on Broadway (Lion King), performers in the West End, andhave opened their own dance companies. Beyond the arts, other alumni dancers have pursuedmedical, legal, insurance, educational and so many other careers.
United Dance Productions continues to improve and inspire the education and training of dancersfrom 3years to adults.
