Graceful Steps Dance Studio

Graceful Steps Dance Studio continues in high quality standard of Buckeye Gymnastic with solid dance training. An emphasis is placed on building the fundamentals of dance while having fun andBuckeye Dance Logo working hard! In our dance classes students can learn discipline, boost athleticism and build confidence.

Our annual recital is in June, and all students are encouraged to participate. The recital is a wonderful opportunity for students to show friends and family what they have worked on all year.

For students who desire to take their training to the next level, we also offer a Competition Team. The Competition Team offers additional performance and workshop opportunities to dancers who are serious about their dance training. They compete at a minimum of 3 regional competitions throughout the year, attend local dance workshops, as well as perform in the annual dance recital. The Competition Team has won multiple high awards, but equally as important is the training and exposure to the dance world to prepare them for professional dance for college and beyond. Please contact our Dance Director, Anastasia, for eligibility and further questions.

The studio is well lit, air conditioned with a wooden floor essential to dance practice and performance. Wood is a preferred floor that helps to keep young legs from being hurt during practice. There are floor to ceiling mirrors, a professional sound system and a dance barre for proper ballet instruction.

The goal for each Graceful Steps student is to acquire, through professional dance training, student interaction and performance opportunities, the confidence to pursue other potential venues in life.
