Impacting dance for 30 years

Mary Poppins (2013)

Dance Steps is celebrating 30 years of dance this year in London, and since its inception in 1989 the organization has introduced well over 40,000 people to the athleticism and artistic component of dance.

Over the last three decades the Dance Steps studio has: Trained more than 6,000 people of all ages to dance; held more than 30 professional dance auditions at the facility; hosted more than 30 recitals; and presented 11 seasons of the traditional Nutcracker Ballet to the London Community.

As part of a special 30th anniversary celebrations this year, aspiring young dancers – as well as adults and alumni – will descend upon the Spriet Stage at the Grand Theatre in London this June for a presentation called ‘I’d Rather Be Dancing 2019.’ The show will take place on Saturday, June 1 at 2:00pm and again at 7:00pm. All alumni are welcome to attend.

The two-hour show will entertain and delight the audience, as dancers present ballet, jazz, tap, lyrical, modern, acro, hip hop and musical theatre numbers.

During the show, Dance Steps Company will present their annual production number to the theme of Aladdin. Past production numbers include Wizard of Oz (2018), Beauty and the Beast (2017), Where’s Waldo (2016), Little Mermaid (2015), the Muppets (2014), and Mary Poppins (2013). As in past years, the 2019 show will include stunning sets and props.
