What Parents Are Saying About Step Ahead
“Step Ahead Dance is the third studio where my daughter has taken dance classes, and is miles above others. Kim, Ashley, and the other staff at Step Ahead Dance are serious about teaching dance and performance etiquette. They don't; however, lose sight of the fact that it's supposed to be fun. My daughter loves taking classes there and has progressed wonderfully in her dance skills. From a parent's perspective, events and classes are thoughtfully planned and well organized. I would recommend Step Ahead Dance to anyone looking for a dance studio for their children, or for themselves!” ~J.B.
“Over the last several years, I have had dealings with several dance studios around the area and none of them can hold a candle to Step Ahead Dance studio! My step-daughter has been taking dance classes for a few years now and after a few months of her attending classes at Step Ahead Dance, we realized how much she enjoyed her time there as well as the instructors. Ms. Kim and Ms. Ashley, along with the other instructors there are amazing in how well they are able to keep a great balance between teaching dance skills and keeping it fun for the students! I was so thrilled with how well Step Ahead Dance was operated that I signed up for the Adult Jazz class and I am returning this season with my husband joining me! Step Ahead Dance is the place where any adult and/or children can learn to dance and have fun dancing during every class!” ~TLB
“We were looking to register our daughter in a dance studio and after a lot of research we were led to Step Ahead and we couldn’t be happier. Our daughter has been enrolled for 3 years taking ballet, tap and jazz and she loves her instructor and the student assistant. I recently joined the dancing family at Step Ahead by taking a beginning adult clogging class and have loved it. We are planning to stay with Step Ahead as long as we possibly can and have to say that the dancers and instructors are the best.”~Adult student and mother of Danielle
“We have been part of the Step Ahead Dance Studio since they opened in the Garner/Clayton area 6 years ago. As a parent who has studied ballet for 9 years, myself, I am more than impressed with the level of professionalism, training and wonderful choreography skills of the all the teachers. Our two girls have grown so much in their dancing ability in Ballet, Tap, Jazz, Lyrical and HipHop. Additionally, Ms. Kim and Ms. Ashley, along with the other teachers, not only teach dance but self confidence and good character traits. Special aspects about the studio include: classes are kept small so individual attention can be given, wonderful theme based recitals, yearly Daddy Dance (steals the show) and family oriented. Our son joined the Studio last year taking HipHop, so now the entire family dances.” ~Adult student and Mom of 3 dancers
“We are getting ready to begin our sixth season with Step Ahead Dance Studio and could not be more satisfied with the overall operation of the facility. After 2 years in a different dance school where my daughter was just “one more little body,” the personal attention, small class sizes and outstanding teaching skills of the staff are but only a few of the attributes that set Step Ahead apart from the competition. Ms. Kim, Ms. Ashley and the rest of the dedicated staff have sparked a love of dance in my daughter that has grown over the past several seasons. To watch her learn and grow and embody the spirit of a dancer has been incredible. I simply cannot wait to see what the next six years (and then some) will bring.”~Mother of Casey
“Our family has been a member of the Step Ahead Dance Studio for almost 5 years. I have the unique opportunity to view the studio from the perspective of both the mom of a student and as an adult student. As a mom, I could not be happier with the level of expertise and dedication that the teachers show towards the students. The teachers inspire and draw out the best potential in each student. They take the time to work with the child and work with the parent to make sure the child is getting the most out of their dance experience. Not all students aspire to be the next great dancer but the studio treats all the students with the same level of respect. As an adult student, I really appreciate the way the studio is so accommodating to my needs. As adults we all know that outside commitments can get in the way and dance class moves to the bottom of the list, but the teachers and staff are always willing to work with me. They make the adult classes challenging and fun so the adults enjoy coming to dance every week.
The studio offers a wide range of choices for all levels of dancers. The teachers are both educated and show a love and appreciation for dance that spills over into teaching the students. I know that my child really enjoys spending time both in and out of class with the teachers. Step Ahead Dance Studio was a great choice for us and we plan to stay with them for the years to come.”~A very satisfied Mom and student
"The entire staff at Step Ahead Dance Studio has not only done a wonderful job in teaching my 5 year old daughter dance, but they have built her confidence both on and off the recital stage!" ~Mother of Kaitlyn
