KRDS - A STEP ABOVE DANCERS DANCE COMPANY
Competition Team Instructors
In 1991, the A Step Above Dancers were established for those students who wanted to take their training and talent to a whole new level. These girls and boys prioritize dance in their hectic lives. They began by performing locally at church fairs and different town celebrations, and then moved on to shopping malls and Arts Festivals. After only one year, they plunged into the competition arena. And now 27 years later, they have performed in 20 States, 3 different Countries as well as performed on 4 differed Cruise lines. The Team has traveled up and down the East Coast, traveled all over New England, New York, and has performed on the boardwalk in New Jersey, they have competed in Virginia Beach, Hershey Park, Myrtle Beach, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Florida, Maryland, California, and Bermuda. The team has also performed on The Norwegian Cruise Line twice, and they were selected to perform in Disney World in 2000, 2003 and 2011, and 2017 both in the Magic Kingdom, Epcot, and Disney Marketplace.

They must be adaptable and they benefit from the live audiences. They have continued to remain a constant source of pride for Kathy and the rest of the studio. More importantly, no matter how many awards they win (or lose on occasion) they conduct themselves as young ladies and good sports at all times.
