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. We have a “strong” reliable dance family bond that is what makes S1D2 special. 

Please contact our staff, and we can help place your child in the appropriate class. Our hours are 3:15 pm to 9:30 pm Monday through Friday and 8:30-3:00 on Saturdays. 

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

THANK YOU!

THIS IS INCREDIBLE! Thank you again for all that not only voted, but who also support, love, encourage, bring positivity, and who trust us to not only properly educate our dancers, but also trust us to instill love, confidence and allow us to give our community and these children opportunities and inspiring experiences!!! THIS IS WHAT THIS REFLECTS!

Proud of my staff and I. Now we will continue to share our light so bright!

Thank you!
