You can dance with In Step from your very first steps. Learning and having fun, right through to adulthood.

Pop. Street. Jazz. Contemporary.

For all ages and abilities.



Studio owner Christine Wishart has designed and tailored each and every class which runs here at In Step. Having learned from some of the most current people in the industry, Christine has been able to pull influences from many different teaching styles to form the In Step way of doing things.

Our in house dance teacher, Nicola Jardine is professionally trained like all teachers we get through our doors. Nicola graduated from Telford College in Edinburgh in 2009 and has had years of teaching experience since then. 

 In Step pride themselves in inviting guest choreographers, hand picked by Christine for workshops who are nothing less than inspirational, with phenomenal dance careers themselves. 



Here at In Step we provide lots of fun and exciting classes to choose from. Our core styles being Pop, Street, Jazz and Contemporary dance.

In addition to this, we also offer classes such as ‘Mini Steppers’ for our babies ‘Stretch & Tone’ for our Seniors and ‘Step In To You’ for our adults which is our dance based Stretch & Tone class.





At In Step, everyone is welcome. We provide mixed ability classes where people from all levels of experience and ability can dance together. Classes are designed to be age appropriate as we find having mixed abilities in one class really pulls the class together and it gives us the chance to make new friends - age alike.

In Step also offer advanced level classes for our 'Select' dancers for those who seek the next level of dance development. These classes are only accessible by annual audition or invitation only.
