Welcome to our studio! We're so glad you're here! We offer a variety of classes in many dance genres, for ages 2-adult, in both recreational/recital classes and performing groups for those dancers who want to take it to the next step up by entertaining our community, performing year round, and competing at local competitions.
With our youngest dancers ages 2-4, we offer mommy and me creative movement, ballet/tap or ballet/tumbling combo classes. We start with basic movement for this age focusing on basic classroom etiquette, following directions, and fun integrated learning activities. These dancers are still learning basic coordination skills and have shorter attention spans so we plan these classes accordingly.
Our 5-7 year olds can continue in combination classes or have the option of taking jazz or hip hop on it's own! Their muscular structure is still forming and working with their coordination skills to make them a more well rounded dancer, so the combo classes are a bit longer, but since they are still growing and maturing, we don't do the rigorous study of ballet or other forms on their own until age 8. Once they are 8 years and up, there are many different directions we offer that their dance studies can take them!
Our Performing Group is not your typical competition team. We do it by invitation only and it's main focus is not to win trophies, but to show a love and passion for performing dance, build self-confidence and self-esteem by getting in front of judges plus a large audience, to work on teamwork and sportsmanship and to learn from the judge's comments on what we can work on technically.
"We have found a home here at A Step Above. My daughter loves dancing and counts down every week until it's dance day! The teachers are so nice, caring, and they are so good at what they do!" - Molly, Parent
