"Try-It" Classes

Is your child NEW to dance?  Would you like for your child to have the opportunity to try a class before committing to an entire session?
Would your child like to try a new style of dance, but isn't sure about taking a whole session?

If your answer is YES, to either of the above questions, we would like to invite you to our "Try-It" classes.
There are six sessions (each 6 weeks) of "Try-It" classes offered beginning January 2015.
 
Check the "Try-It" tab for details.

Testimonials

From parents of current students:

My daughter had her birthday party at the studio, and she had a blast!  Miss Katie was wonderful with the girls.  They all loved her and she was so patient with them!  We are so glad we 
switched dance studios!
From, Lacy O. 

We are very excited to be back for the Winter/Spring 2015 Session!!!  The girls can't wait to start and we can't wait to watch them learn and have fun!  You guys are all great :)  We definitely appreciate all of your hard work and it doesn't go unnoticed, that's for sure!
From, Jamie B. 

All my daughter has talked about since Fall Session ended was going back to classs to see Miss Stacy and Miss Katie.  She LOVED having them as her teachers!  She's been dancing all around the house, and every Saturday, she asks if she's going to dance.  She's so excited to start again
in January!  What a great studio!  Since we just moved here from out-of-state, it's nice that we've found a studio that makes her so happy to go to. Fall Session was the first time she ever took dance class, and just seeing her excitement for it is just so sweet.
From, Jennifer D. 

Outstanding place to teach my child dance skills.  I can't think of one thing I would change.
I appreciate the recital costume selection because it is age appropriate.  
From, Kathy C. 

We love the Next Step Dance Studio!  We love all the teachers/staff!  This is the best
studio we have been to in a long time!
From, Stacy 

My daughter has been taking classes at NSDS for 3 years.  Outside of dance she is very shy
and quiet around people she doesn't know, but when she dances her whole face lights up with excitement!  She loves being on 
the "big stage" for recital and both she and I have made some great friends through the studio. 
From, Melissa M. 

Thanks for all you do to make Next Step a great studio!  I'm very pleased to have my girls
be a part of the The Next Step Dance Studio!  We enjoy the teachers and entire staff.  It is very important to me as a parent for my children to feel encouraged and have fun at dance.  
This has been accomplished at NSDS.  They also have learned good technique in their classes. It's hard to believe my oldest daughter is starting her 12th year in dance. My youngest is in
her 8th year of dance.  I also appreciate that my daughters have been able to dance in modest
costumes in the recital.  I feel the staff personally care about each of my daughters as I'm sure they do about all the students at the studio.  I have and will continue to recommend The
Next Step Dance Studio.
From, Melissa A.
