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.
S1D2 instructors are performers and teachers here in our own local dance community, aspiring to develop high-quality classes for ourselves and our students, and instilling discipline, professionalism, and positive attitudes.

Parallel is S1D2’s first non-competitive performance company. S1D2 students volunteer and devote their time to rehearse, and perform within the community and at dance conventions.
Students audition in the early fall to become a member or an apprentice within the company. A student must be enrolled in 3 classes or more, including Ballet, and must be age 11 or older.
Parallel debuted their first performance at The Pulse Dance Convention in Atlantic City this January. Their piece was choreographed by our guest instructor, Ashley Lowman.
We strive for these young dancers to understand, master, and be challenged through the art of dance in a nurturing and positive atmosphere. We believe in dancing to express rather to impress.
