STEPS DANCE ACADEMY

“We should consider every day lost on which we have not danced at least once.”-Friedrich Nietzsche

WHO WE ARE: The Goal of STEPS Dance Academy is to run a professional studio with Academy training, at an affordable price.  We believe it is important to demonstrate and teach our students modesty, respect, to persevere, and encourage each other while learning and growing as a dancer, tumbler, and performer.

OUR PHILOSOPHY and VISION: Is to instill in your child a love for the art of dance, while building self-esteem, strong work ethics, and commitments, as they strive for excellence using the gifts they have been given.  We value the importance of appropriate costume and song choices that we use when instructing your dancer.

COMMUNITY: We provide opportunities for our Company dancers to be a part of performing and giving to the community we live in.  SDA teaches & incorporates the YMCA Core Values of *CARING *HONESTY * RESPECT *RESPONSIBILITY

THE BIG PICTURE: The best compliment you can give is a recommendation!  When a new student registers for any class at SDA, by your recommendation, you receive a 15% off coupon for your next month Academy class registration.  Just email steps.academy@gcfymca.org, with the information of the child who joined the Academy per your recommendation!

- We highly recommend that students start classes in the fall, and not wait until the recital season.  It is difficult for the students who arrive in the spring to keep up with the students who have been in class since September.  They miss a lot of training in technique and fundamentals.  They will not progress as quickly as other students who study from fall-spring.

- We highly recommend that students take a ballet class in conjunction with any dance or tumbling class.
