The Next Step School of Dance, formerly Nancy Carole School of Dance, faculty members are certified dance educators with numerous years of teaching and national tour experience. Faculty members continually study by attending conventions and workshops so they may bring the latest trends in dance to their students. Several are or have been members of the award-winning "The Next Step Dance Company". They also take pride in the accomplishments of their students who perform for local benefits, take top honors in local competitions, and even moved on to the Broadway stage! They are also equally as proud of their recreational dancers who perform on the stage for the very first time, or just get the step they've been working on for weeks, or the ones who show the love of dance- just by dancing!!!
The Next Step is conveniently located at 800 Schuyler Avenue in Lyndhurst, New Jersey. We offer dance for children and adults in our state-of-the-art facility, with 4 studios, which means we can offer limited class sizes. This enables us to give personal care and attention to our students. We have viewing windows and a comfortable waiting room. All dance rooms are equipped with sprung dance floors which makes it easier on knees and feet for dancers of all ages.
As Dance Educators at the Next Step School of Dance, we believe the discipline of dance training gives young people a better understanding of commitment through learning, experiencing the spirit of teamwork, and discovering what they can accomplish by working hard at their own goals. We are continually taking class and researching the latest dance styles and techniques, we believe everyone should continue to keep learning. We enjoy teaching our tiniest dancer to our company member and our goal is to educate the minds, bodies and souls of our students, teaching them the skills they need for a successful life, whether or not they stay involved in dance. Dance is our Passion, Come Dance With Us!
