A Cheer and Dance Academy for All Generations 

U CanDance & Cheer was established in January 2013. At that time, we were only known as U CanDance, and we offered classes in Geist Sports Academy, a gymnastics facility with a small dance room located upstairs. We had four different instructors teaching hip-hop, jazz, tap, and ballet lessons.

At the present, we have added Cheer to our name; this signifies the expansion of our programs that now include cheering, stunting, jumping, tumbling, and cheer dancing. We have also stepped up our level and added African dance and stepping for people of all ages in Riverview, Florida.

Training You To Be a Passionate Dancer

Here at U CanDance & Cheer, we train our students in our spirit-filled environment to work hard now and compete harder later. Our resident expert is an elite dancer and cheerleader with the mission to take this generation to the next level. Because of this, we start by teaching our students to give respect to everyone. Our love and passion for elite dancing are also displayed through love, patience, and kindness. 

Meet Our Dance Coach

Candace Renee Dulin-Staples is a passionate and powerful praise dancer born and raised in Indianapolis, Indiana. She is married and has two children and four grandchildren.

Because she is empathetic, she can quickly connect with the next generation on a spiritual level. Candace’s passion for coaching guided her to establish U CanDance & Cheer. She loves to serve the youth through mentorship and networking with many generations through the art of dance. Because of her coaching style, she believes that she has the characteristics of a COACH: caring, obedient, anointed, courageous, and helpful to her students to achieve success in life.

She led a youth dance ministry with children aged 13 to 18 from 2008 until 2016 at New Beginnings Fellowship Church in Indianapolis, Indiana. God’s Chosen One (GC1) was the name of the ministry. In 2014, she started as an assistant coach for a 7th grade cheer squad in a public middle school in Indianapolis. The following season, she became the head coach of the 7th grade of New Augusta Public Academy until 2018, when she relocated to Brandon, Florida.

Words From Candace Staples

I danced for church, worked with young people, and served a cheer coach. As a mentor, I teach the youth how to dance, express themselves through this art, and be cheerful.

In 2013, I started U CanDance & Cheer in Geist Sports Academy, which is a gymnastic place. My desire to establish an academy like this originated from my childhood passion for being a cheerleader and longing to be a dancer. I couldn’t train due to lack of funds, but I was able to cheer because of fundraisers. That was how my passion for being a cheer coach grew.

I started taking lyrical dancing classes in my old home church, New Beginnings Fellowship Church in Indianapolis, Indiana, at the age of 37. From there, I have taken additional dancing classes, such as hip-hop, African, and beginner ballet. While I was a part of our church’s dance ministry, I became the facilitator of our youth dance ministry and had trained more than 35 dancers between ages 13 and 18.

My passion for serving the youth inspired me to launch this cheer academy that now offers the following classes: 

  • African Dance
  • Ballet
  • Cheer Dance

  • Conditioning
  • Hip-Hop
  • Stepping
  • Stunts
  • Tap
  • Tumbling

I am also a Herbalife distributor, which is why I believe that nutrition is very important for young athletes. 

Our Academy’s Mission

We believe in training up children in the way they should cheer, dance, and tumble! Our academy is the place where love creates victory. This is also where we all run to and feel safe to express ourselves.

Why Choose Our Cheer and Dance Academy?

  • All of our instructors are loving and caring; they have the heart to serve the younger generation.
  • We allow our students to build competitive teams as they also gain a family.
  • We help our dancers grow and express themselves through dance.
  • We help students from all generations to be confident and have high self-esteem.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
