Next Step Dance News!
The Next Step is OPEN for Fall Dance Camps! Camps are being taught in person and/or via Zoom. Camps will be taught outside whenever possible.
You can help feed the hungry locally this Holiday Season by donating to the Loaves and Fishes Food Drive going on at all 3 NSDS locations. Please drop your non-perishable food items into one of the barrels at any of our 3 locations between now and December 17th. Please be sure and wear a face mask covering your nose and mouth. Thank you in advance for helping to support the hungry in our local community.
As we safely go back to teaching dance IN the studio, we will be implementing new studio policies, as listed below. If you have any questions regarding these new policies, please let us know. We can't wait to see you in person!

Thank you in advance for adhering to these new 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, uniforms for some classes and 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. Click the Dress Code link to see if your class has a uniform. Click the shop 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!
