Celebrate successes big and small
Our goal is to provide high-quality dance education and to be a place each of our dancers feels like they belong.
- We strive to create a positive atmosphere in which dancers can feel part of a community as well as learn how to set goals and celebrate their accomplishments as they grow!
- We want our dancers to have fun while they learn how to express themselves through movement, but also develop discipline, confidence, and resilience along the way.
- We want each and every family to feel confident that their children are receiving high-quality dance education in a supportive environment.

Ms. Heather S.
I took my first dance class when I was barely 3 years old. I don’t remember this but my dad loves to tell me about how I would come home, go to my room, set up a dance studio, and teach dance class to my dolls. He claims to have known way back then that I would own a dance studio when I grew up.
I don’t remember life before dance at all, and I have always been thankful for that because it has been such a source of happiness in my life. I remember feeling sad for my friends who didn’t dance growing up, because it was clearly the greatest activity ever.
I was 15 years old when I taught my first class. Although I was a pretty shy child, I had never felt more at home than I did in front of a tap class. Teaching came very naturally and made sense to me. I celebrated all of my student’s progress and was so excited to teach them the next new thing each week. I stood backstage at recital, watching my class perform all the steps I had taught them, and felt pride like I had never felt before. I knew this is what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.
As I grew older, I began to realize all the lessons that dance had taught me- more than the steps and the technique and how to do a ballet bun- but perseverance, problem-solving, work ethic, and the importance of working as a team.
In the one year of my life that I did not dance regularly, I realized that dancing not only made me happy on the surface but provided a deep happiness that was good for my overall health, happiness, and wellbeing. I was teaching school at the time and although I enjoyed my students, I knew I would rather be providing kids the same experiences that made my childhood so rich and taught me some of the most important lessons of my life.
I founded Steppin Time with the goals of providing dance education in a welcoming and positive atmosphere, helping kids learn how to set goals and work really hard for them, and creating a community of dancers who support each other and celebrate each other’s accomplishments all along the way.
Join our community of dancers striving to become their very best!
