Level Up Studios is a creative arts studio that offers Dance & Martial Arts Training, Design Services, Creative Writing Courses & Piano Lessons under one roof. Inspired by hip hop culture, Level Up celebrates its positive roots and serves as a creative playground for underserved youth, local artists/ musicians and cultural enthusiasts.

Created out of a passion for community reinvestment, we aim to make art, music and movement accessible in life, not just the classroom. Here we encourage students to explore their ideas through experimentation in the arts while building the skills to develop career related interests, self confidence, and cultural awareness.
