Who We Are?
Step Right Dance, opened in 2013, is a community driven dance studio that’s sole focus is to provide affordable, yet quality dance tuition and for all of our students - young or old, and for those students to feel as though they are part of our family.
Our strong sense of pride in our culture and values is what sets us apart from other schools. Here at SRD we pride ourselves on fostering that nurturing and encouraging environment to our students, families and staff and creating that family like bond, whilst still providing our dancers with the best technical training possible.
“We don’t teach kids to make great dancers, we teach dance to make great kids”... and of course adults too ;)
