You cannot find a more dedicated studio than Next Step. Not only do they develop my daughters technique, but they also develop her character. The coach, Hillary, makes each dancer feel like her favorite. They love her and she makes her dance community feel like family. I highly recommend this studio for anyone interested in dance.

My 5 year old daughter loves dancing in the little steps ballet, jazz and hip hop classes. Mrs Hillary and the other coaches are so good at teaching technical form/positions and do it in a fun way that keeps my daughter enthralled with the sport. The older kids in other classes are also super supportive and encouraging of the younger kids, which is great to see!

We absolutely love Next Step for our 3 year old. They have so much fun in all of their classes and our daughter looks forward to every class with so much excitement and anticipation! She is usually hesitant of big groups of kids and just likes to watch but Hillary drew her right out of her shell and now she wants to be a ballerina when she grows up. Added bonus: they look passed the 3 year old meltdowns when they may or may not pop up πŸ™‚

Hillary cultivates an atmosphere of teamwork and support, helping dancers achieve their goals. I highly recommend Next Step Dance Studio to those who want their kids to grow both as individuals and as dancers.
