The Academy is housed within Steps on Broadway, the epicenter of dance training on the Upper West Side of New York City. Aimed at growing your child’s confidence in a fun and inspiring environment, The Academy nurtures creativity and explores the world of dance in a comprehensive approach that benefits both the physical and emotional well-being. Students will have the unique opportunity to train with a diverse and professional faculty, choreographers, and fellow dancers in various dance styles– ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, theater dance, and modern – along with performance skills and opportunities. Graduates of the program flourish in the professional dance world and are among the top picks for elite college dance programs, conservatories, and dance companies, as well as commercial and Broadway work.

Whether your child wants to dance once a week or aspires to become a professional dancer, there are classes for everyone. Split into three divisions, the Steps Academy include the Pre-Professional Division (Ages 10-18), the Youth Division (Ages 7-18), and First Steps (ages 2-6). Registration begins July 15, and the academic year runs from September to June. Class observations, performances, community nights, and receptions present parents and dancers with opportunities to celebrate throughout the year.
