YEAR 9 is going to SHINE!

Shine Your Light at S1D2!

Step 1 Dance 2 Academy (S1D2) is a non-competitive, friendly, fun, and innovative dance studio whose goals are to help each student build confidence, self-esteem, strength, flexibility, and an appreciation for the art of dance and movement. Our dance program is exciting and challenging – grounded in all styles of technique, along with a proper knowledge base – and taught by professionally trained, college-educated dance instructors. S1D2 is a place of encouragement where students will learn and grow in movement, performance, and self-assurance.

Classes are designed to help our students develop physically, mentally, socially, and emotionally through a solid foundation of creativity, proper technique, and developmentally appropriate movements.

Please contact our staff, and we can help place your child in the appropriate class. Our summer hours are 3:15 pm to 8:30 pm Monday through Friday. You can also try our FREE summer classes or visit us during our upcoming Open Houses in August and September.

 

Fall 2019/Spring 2020 registration is now OPEN! Classes are filling quickly!

THIS IS WHAT THIS REFLECTS!
