Next Step Safety Guidelines: 

  1. We are counting on parents to please only send their child to the studio if they are healthy. We do realize that some students suffer from allergies annually.
  2. Dancers must remove their walking shoes and enter the studio barefoot. We will have a place for them to place their walking shoes outside the studio upon entry. 
  3. Masks are no longer required however, if your dancer feels more comfortable wearing a mask, they are welcome to do so. 
  4. The lobbies and waiting areas at all studios will be closed. Dancers will only enter the studio when the lesson begins.
  5. Please pull your dancer’s hair back in a neat and secure ponytail or bun prior to arrival.

Thank you in advance for adhering to these policies as we adapt to the changing environment and continue to provide a safe, fun place to educate your child in the art of dance!

Dance Shoes & Class Uniforms - The Next Step has an on-line store for required dance shoes and uniforms for some classes, plus suggested dance apparel for all others. The service is quick, easy and convenient for parents. A shoe-sizing kit is available at our Village Office 109-A Town & Country Dr., and all items are shipped directly to your home. All classes have required dance shoes. Please click this Next Step Store link to order your required shoes and uniforms now if you haven't already done so.

The Next Step Dance Studio is an organization that champions equality, diversity and inclusion. Our staff chose three incredible organizations to support. Black Visions Collective, Color of Change and NAACP Legal Defense Fund. Our families generously donated in June! As promised, we took the sum of those contributions, added our own donation to the total, and split it into three even amounts, then sent the donations to each organization. Thank you to all our Next Step Families for your generosity and support! 

The Next Step raised $9,381.40 for C.A.S.A., Court Appointed Special Advocates for Children at our Charity Gala! Thank you to everyone for your support!
