Next Step Dance News!

The Next Step is OPEN for Dance Camps! Camps are being taught in person and/or via Zoom. Camps will be taught outside whenever possible.

Dance Team Auditions are coming in April and May! Please visit our home page for Audition Flyers and more information or contact our office to sign up. 

Spring Recital tickets will go on sale, Monday, April 12th. Please check your email for Dress Rehearsal and Recital line-ups.

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!

Next Step Safety Guidelines:

  1. Only 12 dancers will be allowed to enter the studio for camp. 
  2. Students may bring one ziplock bag with bottled water and cell phone if needed.
  3. Dance shoes needed for the lesson should be placed in a separate gallon size ziplock bag.
  4. 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.  
  5. Each dancer's temperature will be taken with an infrared thermometer upon entry to the studio, then we will give each student one pump of hand sanitizer.
  6. Dancers will stand 6 feet apart at all times, whether inside or outside the dance studio and will not be allowed to touch each other. We will have floor markings placed around the studio so students know where to dance.
  7. We kindly ask all dancers to please wear a mask in camp. If your dancer cannot wear a mask for health reasons, please notify your instructor. Everyone must wear a mask when arriving and leaving camp. NSDS Staff members ARE required to wear a mask at all times. 
  8. Our staff will rigorously disinfect all surfaces touched by the dancers after each camp.
  9. 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.
  10. Parents are welcome to come into the studio with a mask on to speak to our office staff during office hours if necessary, however it’s best if all communications are through email or phone. 
  11. The lobbies and waiting areas at all studios will be closed. Dancers will only enter the studio when the lesson begins.
  12. Please pull your dancer’s hair back in a neat and secure ponytail or bun prior to arrival, so that they are not fussing with their hair and inadvertently touching their face/head with their hands.
  13. If possible, please send your dancer with hand sanitizer or wipes to use before and after camp.
  14. Although dancers and small children are not required to wear a mask, we ask that all parents/caregivers wear masks during drop off/pick up, or any necessary office visits.
  15. We are SO excited to see students back in the studio. 

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 & Camp Uniforms - The Next Step has an on-line store for required dance shoes and uniforms for some camps, 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 camps 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!
