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:

Our annual battle celebrates street dance in all its forms! An exciting mix of workshops, showcases, and an all-important opportunity for crews and individual dancers to battle it out.

Day of Dance (Various dates/ locations)
Visit a professional dance studio, take classes and share your work with other Step students and interact with either professional or semi-professional dancers.
