“When I walked into Steps, I felt comfortable, almost at home…By taking lessons at Steps these couple of months, there is a tremendous growth in my dancing, and in my confidence as well…I know that if I am doing something wrong, a teacher will notice and help me fix my mistakes. Most importantly, I know that I am always learning something new at Steps.”
-Israeli IISP Student
