Our Mission

The Next Step Dance Studio is committed to providing high-quality dance classes to enhance the overall development of the child. We provide a safe and child-centered environment to encourage our students to explore dance with qualified, nurturing instructors.

We believe that dance training encourages young people to develop a positive self-image as they increase awareness of their physical being. Along with improving coordination skills and developing muscular awareness, dance classes give children the freedom to express themselves through movement.

The highest educational standards are expected from all The Next Step Dance Studio faculty members. They are lifelong learners who continue to educate themselves through certification programs, instructor-training schools, conferences, and other learning opportunities.

We want to develop in our dancers...

  • Respect
  • Responsibility
  • Creativity
  • Focus
  • A drive to learn

We want our dancers to feel...

  • Loved
  • Confident
  • Inspired
  • Motivated
  • Accomplished
