HAPPY BIRTHDAY STEP AHEAD!
Step Ahead is celebrating its first birthday of its dance school at the Hockley Centre in
Poynton. The school which opened in June 2009 has enjoyed welcoming and training up new pupils over the past year.
Now awash with lots of budding ballerinas, tantalising tappers and slick street dancers the school is working towards including the new pupils in the 2011 biannual show as well as preparing them for gruelling examinations and show cases.
The new school opened after an increase in numbers at the school’s Heald Green venue and also provides an ideal facility for top level ballerina’s thanks to the Hockley Centre’s sprung floor and contemporary dance studio.

said: “I am really pleased that the new school has been such a success. It is always a risk investing time and money into a new business. Thankfully I have a great support network around me and excellent body of staff who are really hard working.
“I have been delighted with the level of talent we have discovered in the Poynton area and there has been a huge rise in the number of boys coming to join in with our street dance lessons. Thanks to programmes like Strictly Come Dancing and Britain’s Got Talent, boys are becoming less inhibited and are embracing the dance culture.”
Step Ahead is always on the lookout for new pupils and would like to hear from anyone interested in coming to the school.To book a place, or to get more information, please
