Benefits of Dance

A Step Above Dance & Music Academy opened in 1988 as an option for dancers and their parents who prefer dance training based in positive reinforcement and concern for the self-esteem

and self-image of the young dancer.

A Step Above Dance & Music Academy provides its students with self-confidence and feelings of accomplishment through excellent training in all areas of dance.  Director Tami Bisbee teaches with a faculty of highly-trained, caring teachers who are looking forward to helping you and your child develop a lifelong respect and appreciation for the performing arts.


We are sure your experience with us will be positive, enjoyable, and challenging. 

Our state of the art facility includes:

  • Six separate dance classrooms, each with portable barres and full-wall mirrors.  All rooms have sprung Marley-covered floors.

We offer excellent technical training through our unique curriculum that has trained so many before. Dance training not only prepares a dancer for a possible dance career or college dance. People who grow up dancing tend to have excellent time management skills, self-confidence, better memory and concentration, more energy, better balance and flexibility, and lifelong friendships.
