Next Step Safety Guidelines:
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!
