Events

Step into Dance offers schools and aspiring dancers a range of exciting performance opportunities to get involved with, giving them the chance to expand their experience and perform in a professional theatre.

As well as weekly school sessions we are committed to providing performance events and other opportunities to all our students. Schools and young people on the programme will be able to participate in the following events.

Dance Teacher, Highams Park School said: “Our students had a wonderful time at Step Around Town, Haringey 2023 and it was so lovely to be a part of. It was greatly inspiring for our students who participated, and wonderful as staff members to see our students in a really supportive environment where they were able to perform and meet like minded students. We hope to be part of it again in the future. Thank you so much again.”
