Step 2 this dance studio is located just west of 41/edens expressway. We offer classes for students ages 3 and up in ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop, and acro. We cater to the 3-year-old looking to take their first dance class to the dancer looking to perform and compete. Our studio boasts a state of the art Harlequin, us.harlequinfloors.com, sprung dance floor. Dancing on a proper surface is crucial for the safety of our dancers and helps prevent injury.
We strive for every dancer to gain the proper dance technique necessary to be the best dancer they can be. We want our students to walk out of the studio and off the stage with a smile. This is more than a studio, we are a family.
