New Steps Dance & Fitness Center specializes in dance and fitness classes for ages 2-adult and is located in Glastonbury, Conn. Our trained dance instructors have over 30 years’ experience in the dance center environment.
Our dance classes meet once per week for 45 or 60 minutes (see schedule page for details), with our Twinkle Tots & Adult Dance classes meeting every week for 10 weeks. Students are encouraged to perform in the year-end recital to share their accomplishments with family and friends; however, it is not mandatory. For students participating in the recital, dress rehearsal is mandatory.
Student class placement isn’t solely based on age but experience and ability as well. Please contact us with any questions on class placement.
If the schedule does not allow your child to have back-to-back classes, please keep in mind students are welcome to wait in our waiting room between classes to eat dinner, do homework or hang out, as long as they respect the studio and classes that are in session and have approval from Miss Janelle.
There cannot be eating, drinking or gum chewing during class. Only water is allowed in dance studios.
