At Unique Steps Dance Academy we strive to provide high quality dance classes for children and adults in a non-competitive, socially aware environment. We believe that arts education enriches the lives of students and their families, and builds community through cultural awareness. Our students will become technically proficient, build self-esteem, learn to collaborate, and develop leadership skills, all while enjoying themselves
Our Core Values
We Respect and Love Eachother
We firmly build our studio on the foundation that we must respect and love one another regardless of any differences we may have.
We Foster Self-Esteem & Self Awareness
We believe in fostering positive self-esteem and self-awareness through our programs by building our dancers up, not tearing them down. It is an important focus of all of our programming that participants leave feeling good about themselves.
We Give back to Our Community
Our dance training program includes a performance team that does not compete, but shares their love of dance with the community through local performances at fundraisers, nursing homes, and schools. We encourage our performance team to assist with therapeutic classes as well as our preschool program.
We Create Fun For All Ages & Abilities
We offer a therapeutic track which is designed for dancers with varying levels of social – emotional and cognitive delays. The goal of the program is for participants to be able to enjoy the art of dance and therapeutic benefits of movement. We offer a seperate therapeutic class setting or integrate participants into main stream classes.
Health & Wellness
Our health & wellness division includes information on nutrition and fitness classes for children and adults. We offer workshops dealing with various parenting topics led by our Director Melissa who is a registered dance therapist and LMHC.
