Steps Youth Pre-Professional (ages 7-18) and Academy (ages 13+) Programs
2020-2021 Academic Year

The Steps Youth Pre-Professional program’s diverse curriculum provides outstanding and challenging training for successful and adaptable 21st-century dancers in a welcoming and nurturing environment. Graduates of our program flourish in the professional dance world and are amongst the top picks for elite college dance programs, conservatories, and dance companies, as well as commercial and Broadway work. 

This year we are proud to introduce the Academy Program, which will enable dancers ages 13 and up from performing arts high schools and middle schools to access high-level classes within Steps Youth Programs, in conjunction with their academic school schedules. 

Classes for the Academic Year 20-21 will begin as all virtual for September and October.

*For ages 7-9 this is more of an assessment to see if your dancer is interested in studying with us. We are looking for focus, enjoyment in dancing and musicality rather than ability. This is also an opportunity for your dancer to see if they enjoy dancing at this level!
