Interesting Facts About S1D2

  • Ms. Jess owned and operated Step 1 Dance 2 Academy for two and half years in Kansas before re-opening it in Maryland after her move.
  • S1D2 was originally located less than a mile from its current location, across from the Kent Towne Market shopping center, but Ms. Jess had to re-locate due to the rapid influx of students within her first couple years of opening.
  • Did you know that Studio C used to be a dance boutique for 5 years before it was converted to make room for more dance space?
