We are so grateful for the Steps dance family!
Thank you for creating a supportive and loving home for young dancers!
Absolutely incredible experience!
My 12 year old daughter had possibly the best time of her life dancing at Steps – we travelled in from Massachusetts and we cannot to come back again for more, more more! The faculty was phenomenal, and the choreography was outstanding!! She took the intermediate level theater Jazz and the intermediate tap, and she fit right in, learned so much, and loved every minute. Thank you, Steps!
I think the Steps [Academy] PrePro program is excellent.
The teachers and syllabus are dynamic and engaging and the dancers become fluent in many different styles of dance. The quality of the instruction was evident this weekend at the Starlight Performance. The dancers were amazing ! I can’t imagine the program getting negative reviews; it is well run and nurturing and very concerned about each dancers development and enjoyment of dance.
