Studio 4 is the competitive program of The Next Step Dance Studio. We strive for excellence in character and technique within our competitive program, and we place a strong emphasis on artistry. We take great pride in the level of instruction and choreography our program is founded upon, and we continue to refine, expand, and educate our staff and students as the dance industry changes from year to year. We believe in a solid fundamental dance education of all our staff and students, and we craft our dancers to be strong in body, mind, and technique. Our main goal and mission is to transform the dancer into an artist.
