Steps Dance Centre has been serving the Greater Trail area since 1991. Founded by Rhonda Michallik, Steps quickly became the go-to studio for quality dance training in a variety of styles. Over the past 30 years, Steps dancers have entertained our community through many local performances.

At Steps, we are proud to offer classes in a wide array of dance styles. These include Jazz, Tap, Ballet, Hip Hop, Modern, Pointe, Lyrical, and Musical Theatre. Our classes start for children at the age of 3, with our Tiny Tots dance classes teaching them fundamental movements and rhythm through music and games. We have classes and levels for all dancers age 5-18, after which we hold regular sessions of beginner adult classes.

Our regular dance season runs from September to May, with weekly classes and performance opportunities. We finish off our year with a highly anticipated year-end recital, held at The Bailey Theatre, that showcases all of our amazing dancers!

We look forward to sharing our love of dance with you!
