The Next Step Dance Studio has two types of Dance Teams. Our Company Teams perform locally, attend dance conventions and competitions, perform at Disneyland, Universal Studios, plus take educational dance camps in Los Angeles and internationally. Auditions for our Competitive Company Teams are held each April/May. Please see our News/Events Calendar for all dates and times.

Our Performance Teams are designed for those dancers who only want to attend camps one day a week and still have a performance opportunity. These team members perform at one local event, one local educational dance convention and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Our higher level Performance Teams take camps two days a week as well as perform at one local event, one local educational dance convention and Six Flags Discovery Kingdom. Auditions for these teams are in May. Please see our News/Events Calendar for all dates and times. ​


​Combines the arts of ballet and modern dance trends to create a free style technique of movement, unlimited in expression. Classes include a 20 minute warm-up, then across-the-floor movement with jazz technique, and culminate with a combination (choreographed routine).


Classical ballet technique that builds grace, poise, and strength while developing correct body placement. Each class starts with approximately one-half hour at barre, then center work and across-the-floor movement. For elementary school age and up. While age is a consideration, a student’s level of skill is more important for class placement.

Company Teams

Auditions for our award winning dance teams are held once a year in the Spring. Teams compete at major dance competitions which have included Hollywood Connection, L.A. Dance Magic, NUVO and Jump. Dance teams also perform at festive local events and Disneyland. Our Senior Lines will end the year with a European Dance Tour!
