Updates

Registration is now open for our 2021-22 School Year Program!!  

Check out our COVID Phase Procedures!

We are currently in Phase 2 due to the Dane County Mask Mandate. 

We will be updating our phase status each month.  

We have been doing all we can to continue offering an outlet for our children during this pandemic. 

We understand this is a frustrating time for everyone,  but our goal is to provide an anchor for our children during a time that they need us most.  We have learned a lot from last year and plan to move forward with improved strategies to help our children keep dancing during this time!

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:

  • A dance program offering excellent dance technique and instruction in ballet, pointe, jazz, tap, lyrical, contemporary, hip hop, and musical theater.

  • A professional learning environment.

  • A family-friendly waiting area.

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

  • Observation windows into each classroom as well as TV monitors in our waiting area.

  • Large, separate dressing areas for boys and girls.

  • Age-appropriate student-to-teacher ratio.  Our smaller class sizes assure safety and allow personal attention to each student.

  • Flexible scheduling with classes during evenings and Saturday mornings.

  • Numerous performance and workshops opportunities 

  • which are available to all students.

  • Daytime and evening office staff to provide assistance and to answer all of your questions.
