Step I Dance & Fitness offers a unique and diverse schedule of classes, including fitness classes and a contemporary dance program. Since its inception in 1987, Step I continues its dedication to creating a community that comes together under one roof to dance, work-out and have fun. Under the direction of Pepper Von and Mary Wright, the studio offers one of the largest dance programs for adults, as well as a comprehensive dance program for children.
Located in Midtown, Step I has three large, bright, air-conditioned studios. We offer classes seven days a week. Our friendly and caring staff are all trained and experienced in their area of instruction.
The FITNESS PROGRAM offers a variety of group fitness classes for all levels. Step I is known for its high energy, creative choreography and challenging classes. The DANCE PROGRAM offers a variety of classes for adults and children, ages 3 and up. We specialize in contemporary, L.A. style jazz, hip hop, ballet and tap. The Adult Program is on-going and you may start at any time. The Children's Program is divided into three sessions per year.
Step I is proud to be a "performing studio". The Children's program has a showcase recital at the end of each session and we house four resident dance companies for children and adults. Auditions for these companies are held annually.
