Step II Dance Center
At Step II Dance Center, the teachers help to transform their students into polished performers with an array of classes, laying the foundations for future dancers, singers, and actors. They teach students as young as 3 and as old as 82 to move their bodies in styles such as ballet, soft shoe Irish dance, and hip-hop, as well as in theater dance, which students put to use as they star in renditions of musicals such as 42nd Street and Annie. Independent filmmakers and companies such as Forman Mills have hosted auditions for commercials and movies at Step II Dance Center, giving students a chance to break out in the business without plastering their headshots all over a film producer's cartons of milk.
