Register Now for Steppin' Out's 2015-2016 Season! + August News

We are so excited to welcome you to another new year at Steppin' Out
Dance Studio. In celebration of new starts, we also have a mostly new
website which we hope will make it easier for you to register for
classes this season. So please do take a moment to register! (Your
spot will be held until 5 p.m. on 8/14.) We have missed our Steppin'
Out community this past month and are looking forward to seeing you
all in class after Labor Day.


Steppin' Out will begin classes shortly after Labor Day on Tuesday,
September 8th. Our schedule is available at This year for the first time you
will be able to see which teachers are teaching which classes! We're
excited to announce that Krystal will be co-teaching many of the
weekday classes with Angela this year, so if your Saturdays are
getting hectic, consider a weekday class instead (or do both!).
Another great opportunity this year is the chance to enroll in an
hour-long ballet class Wednesday afternoon with Jordan (5 p.m. for
students aged 7-10; 6 p.m. for teens). These focused, in-depth
explorations of ballet will help dancers improve strength and
technique, which will carry over in jazz class!

Steppin' Out strives to respect the diversity of our community and the
dignity of each of our students as we create a warm, nurturing
environment for students to grow and thrive. Our year is composed of a
two-part cycle: During the months of September to December, students
learn dance vocabulary and technique. From January to June, students
begin working on dances to be performed in costume at the annual June
recital for family and friends, a polished stage production. From year
to year, students remain together with their cohort in classes that
grow in complexity as the dancers grow in ability in accordance with
Steppin' Out's emphasis on community, connection, and group cohesion.


Each year, Steppin' Out maintains waiting lists for the majority of
families. This past year, over a hundred families hoped to find
enrollment in our community but were unable to secure spots. Due to
this high demand, classes that are fully enrolled will not be open for
drop-in or single class purchases. Instead, to retain your spot, we
ask that families pay by the month and provide 30-days written notice
of intent to vacate a spot. We very much appreciate your support of
these policies which make it easier for us to serve more of the many
families who wish to dance with us and keep our tuition the lowest in
the city.


All continuing students who are returning to their same classes from
last year and who register by 5 p.m. on Friday, August 14th are
guaranteed a spot. Students who wish to change classes and new
families enrolling at Steppin' Out for the first time should indicate
their preferences and will receive a prompt response detailing their
options. Some more advanced classes do require specific placement by
Angela and/or an audition to ensure students are matched to the
appropriate level.

To enroll, please visit our class page at and click on the "request a
class" button. Please complete one request form per dancer (you may
request multiple classes for the same dancer on one form). (Note that
if you have visited our website recently you may need to clear your
browser's cache to see the new website. Please contact us if you encounter any difficulty.)

Class space is limited and registration is first come, first served
for the appropriate level after continuing student placement. Waiting
lists will be maintained for each class and families will be contacted
as soon as space becomes available. You can be assured that we will do
our utmost to help your family find the class that works for you.


Share the benefits of dance--poise, grace, confidence, self esteem,
dance fundamentals, music appreciation, joy, adventure, fun!--with
your greater community. Please forward this message to others. Your
support is very much appreciated!

Don't forget to register now and see you at the studio!
