What our instructors are saying...

"I love teaching at NSDS because I get the incredible opportunity to work with and inspire the best dancers ever!  I love seeing my students growing and forming life long friendships with every leap,turn, and 6 step they complete! I also have the world's best best boss, so, you gotta show some love for the fabulous Darcey AND all the dedicated dance moms and dads that believe in their dancers! What's NOT to love about dancing and teaching at Next Step? It's the best studio there is!"
