Dance. Grow. Uplift

About Uplift Dance Education

Our Philosophy

"At Uplift Dance Education, we are dedicated to providing a nurturing and enriching dance experience that celebrates the joy of movement and fosters holistic development in dancers of all ages. From our humble beginnings as a mobile dance studio to our thriving studio space in Aledo, Texas, we are committed to delivering exceptional dance education that leaves a lasting positive impact on our students and their families.

We believe that dance is more than just a form of artistic expression; it is a powerful tool for promoting balance, coordination, motor skills, and socialization. Our classes are thoughtfully designed to cultivate these essential skills while instilling a genuine love for music, movement, and dance.

At Uplift Dance Education, we embrace the philosophy that learning is best facilitated through play and imagination. We engage our dancers with a wide array of props such as scarves, egg shakers, hula hoops, ribbon wands, and rhythm sticks, creating an atmosphere of fun and creativity in each class.

Our experienced and compassionate instructors lead the way in a curriculum centered around developmentally appropriate skills and techniques. We understand the significance of early childhood development, and we strive to nurture the whole child as they grow, learn, and blossom into confident and well-rounded individuals.

Our offerings cater to dancers of all ages, starting as early as 10 months old and extending to adult classes. Whether it's single-style or combo-class options, our diverse class lengths ranging from 30 to 90 minutes ensure there's a perfect fit for everyone's preferences and schedules.

As we continue to serve the DFW area with both studio and mobile options, we remain committed to providing an inclusive, supportive, and inspiring environment where dancers can explore their potential, build friendships, and find their passion for dance.

At Uplift Dance Education, we dance together, grow together, and uplift each other on this beautiful journey of artistic expression and personal development."

Owner & Artistic Director


Kimberly Gaudette

Kimberly was born and raised in the Chicago suburbs where she started dancing at the age of two. Kimberly soon fell in love with the sport of dance and began training 5-6 days a week. Over the course of the next 15 years, Kimberly trained in ballet, tap, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical, modern, contemporary, and musical theater. Through this extensive training, Kimberly was blessed with a number of performance opportunities, including a role in the off-broadway production of the NutTapper, a hip hop/tap remix of the Christmas classic The Nutcracker. Here Kimberly performed alongside tap-legend Regio McLaughlin while performing in one of Chicago’s oldest theaters. In addition, Kimberly has been a selected member of a number of competitive dance teams throughout the Chicagoland area. She has competed in over 35 regional and 7 national competitions all over the country, where she has gone on to win three national titles. Her routines have been awarded judges’ choice and showstopper awards for exceptional technique and outstanding performances.

Kimberly started teaching dance at the young age of ten years old. Here Kimberly discovered her passion for teaching young preschool and elementary school students the beauty of dance, the art of performance, and the impact of teamwork. By the age of 15, Kimberly had students competing in regional competitions and joining high-level national competition teams. Amongst the biggest honors, one of Kimberly’s students was recently named Little Miss Petite Dancer at the mere age of four years old.

Since moving to Texas, Miss Kim has continued to invest in the dance scene in the DFW area. Working with several studios to start or strengthen their competition teams, Miss Kim has created a reputation of creating high-quality, well-trained, disciplined dancers who love the sport.

Miss Kim highlights her greatest accomplishment as the creation and success of Uplift Dance Education. Uplift has been a dream of Kimberly’s since she was 10 years old. In the last year, Miss Kim has transformed Uplift from a fleeting idea to a growing business.
