Stepping Stone Dance Studio, owned by Dana Stone, is located at 925 Canal Street in Bristol.

Founded in 2011 by Stone, the studio is a 10,000 square foot facility offering three large dance studios with professional hard wood floors.

The weekly schedule includes a vast array of styles of dance including Ballet, Pointe, Tap, Jazz, Broadway Jazz, HipHop, Musical Theatre, Lyrical, Modern, Acro (Tumbling), Cheerdance (Pomdance), Creative Theatre, Boys HipHop, Stretch, Leaps, & Turns, Adult Tap & HipHop, Yoga, and Zumba.

All levels are catered to – ages 3 & up, from the absolute beginner to advanced dancer. For beginners, classes are a fun way to get fit while gaining experience. For the more experienced dancers, classes are more advanced and challenging. Classes are taught by certified dance instructors and focus on the needs of every student, while providing an inviting, warm and nurturing non-competitive environment.

The experienced instructors at SSDS are truly passionate and keep up with the latest trends and know how to best impart the moves. Its goal is to meet each individual dancer’s desire.

"We offer a non-competitive environment; and focus not on just dance but the growth of our students as an individual," added Dana Stone.

Every SSDS student has their own reason for dancing. Some are exploring new interests, some use dance as an extracurricular activity, some for social interaction, while others strive to become accomplished dancers; perhaps they desire dance as a career. Regardless the reason, SSDS instructors want to instill in every dancer a desire to be creative, confidence to do other activities, a love of music, to share the love & passion of dance with our local community, and to understand their physical capabilities. As dancers pass through the doors of SSDS, they will hold their time spent at the studio close to their hearts as so many other special memories they will grow old with.

One piece of advice from Ms. Dana at SSDS, "Remember your dreams have no limits. Never waste time wishing you would have done something … with hard work and dedication everything is attainable whether they are big or small. Always follow your dreams, because dreams really do come true. Dance your Dreams at Stepping Stone Dance Studio."

Caution: Flu & Cold Season Ahead !!!

The start of the cold and flu season is upon us. To prevent widespread flu in the studio, we recommend that your child stay home if experiencing flu or cold symptoms. Of course we don’t want our dancers missing class, but at the same time we want all of our dancers to stay healthy. Please make sure our dancers wash their hands frequently, use hand sanitizer (there are numerous bottles through-out the studio), to cover their mouth and nose when sneezing or coughing, using a tissue, throw it away and then wash hands & hand sanitize. Please advise if any of our dancers have allergic reactions to hand sanitizer. Please consider keeping your child at home for an extra day of rest and observation if he or she has experienced any flu or cold symptoms. And remember our dancers have the opportunity to make up any missed classes in another style of the same level. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns…. Thank you so much. Ms. Dana — at Stepping Stone Dance Studio.

Safety First !!!

It’s very important to us that children be safe in our parking lot. If you are dropping off or picking up a student at SSDS, please do not stop your car in front of the double door entrance, as shown in this photo from last night’s classes. This not only creates a traffic backup, but also creates a visual barrier that is very unsafe if a child runs out from in front of your stopped vehicle. Even if you are just dropping off or picking up kids waiting outside, please pull into a parking spot. There is plenty of parking in the Courtyard parking lot, the parking lot across the gate, and parking along the building side. Drive slowly and be very aware when pulling out that kids are everywhere! Also, please ask your children to wait inside where it’s safe and warm after dark, there are benches provided in the lobby area, and if they are going to wait outside by the double doors, to please keep a jacket or sweatshirt in their dance bag so they don’t catch cold. Many dancers are coming out of a strenuous class, hot and sweaty, and waiting outside in very cold weather for their family to pick them up. We want to keep them healthy and safe! (You have probably seen the construction in the back of the building, when this project is complete this will provide a gorgeous parking lot, with additional spaces and a safe sidewalk). Please also be aware of the handicap spots, please leave these available for those that require a handicap spot. Thank you for putting our children’s safety first !!!

You are never too old to open the door to dance. Mama Natalie is proof of that. 85 years young enjoying tap class with her daughter Eloise at SSDS. What an amazing moment for all of us. The gift of dance is truly extraordinary. I am blessed to be able to share the love and passion for dance with all my students and their families every day of my life.  Love Ms. Dana
