Live music fills the studios, as interpretive movement and creative games introduce children to the art form in the First Steps. Students mature into the Classes & Workshops for Kids and Teens and Pre-Professional programs where they develop a strong foundation in various dance styles – ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, theater dance, and modern – along with performance skills and opportunities. Knowledge of the art form is deepened through dance history and The Complete Dancer Series, which focuses on dance, health, and career-related topics. In-studio observations, performances and receptions present parents with opportunities to celebrate the accomplishments of their young performers throughout the year.
Steps Youth Programs Academic Year runs September to June.
