Our purpose is to instill leadership, life skills and the knowledge of self-worth for every child.

At A Step Above Dance Studio, we offer classes for every age, skill, and ability

We inspire our students to be their very best. When you join a class at A Step Above, you become part of our dance family. We strive to provide a welcoming, positive environment that not only teaches dance skills, but helps develop life skills in our students.

Regardless of age, skill, or ability, we believe every student is a star and our goal is to instill leadership, life skills, and self-worth, while feeding the health of mind, body, and spirit. We incorporate commitment, teamwork, and leadership skills into all our dance classes.

Every class is taught by loving and talented professional instructors, who have the ability to change teaching style based on the student’s goals. Whether our students are looking to have fun or become professional dancers, we can positively influence them within an inspiring environment.

Our students have become dance professionals, doctors, event coordinators, models, child care providers, and great parents to their own children!

Alumni dancers have become members of the MamLuft Dance Co., Wright State’s prestigious DCDC II Dance Company, dancers for Disney World, the Cleveland Cavaliers Dance Team, and dance majors at BGSU, University of Akron, Ohio Northern University, and Wright State University. Some have become performers at Weathervane Playhouse and numerous other theaters, cruise ships, and at Cedar Point. We also have dancers who have become dance team coaches, choreographers and dance instructors themselves!

Whatever your child strives for, we are honored that you have chosen A Step Above to help nurture and instruct your dancer!
