Underground Allegro Dance Company

Underground Allegro offers a unique set of competitive and performance opportunities for the serious dancer. We offer exposure not only to mainstream dance competitions, which provide a gateway to the world of commercial and concert dance, but also to more specialized venues such as the Youth America Grand Prix, which opens our dancers to a future in classical dance.

Our comprehensive rehearsal structure combined with our meticulous approach to technique makes our company a distinctive opportunity for the serious dancer and a standout in the Chicagoland region. The focus of both our teachers and students has led us to numerous overall awards, scholarships, and choreography awards at several elite competitions including entries in the 2017 Youth America Grand Prix Finals in New York City!

We invite you to contact us to find out more about our company! We guarantee one class and you'll be hooked on the method and the energy!
