Step By Step Dance Studio

Step –By- Step
Dance Studio
In Waltham MA

Step-By-Step Dance Studio has been located in the Newton/Waltham area for 19 years and offers a variety of dance styles to over 200 students of all ages. I feel very strongly that the winter season is a time for giving to those less fortunate than ourselves and for helping people in need. I am especially proud that my students share my feelings and they are dancing this winter to make a difference in the lives of fragile children. My dancers and teachers have volunteered many hours of their time performing at assisted living centers and nursing homes in the area. We have also put on a fabulous Benefit Show for the past 8 years to raise several thousands of dollars for local charities or families in need. This year, all of our fundraising proceeds will benefit Autism Alliance of MetroWest, a Program of Advocates, Inc.

On Saturday, January 24th our studio dancers will be hosting our Winter Gala Benefit “Mystique” to be held at the American Legion Post 440, 295 California St, Newton. We have planned an exciting evening consisting of dance performances by our SBS dancers and special guests. In addition to our main fundraiser, our dancers will host a variety of additional late fall/winter drives in an effort to raise more money for the Autism Alliance of MetroWest.

Not all donations need to be monetary. We will raise funds by holding a raffle at our benefit gala as well as private auctions. In the past, people have won fabulous gifts (and services too!) all of which were donated by local businesses. All of us at Step-By-Step, including our family and friends, are strongly committed to making this fundraiser a success and we have set a goal to raise $20,000.00.

All sponsors will be acknowledged in our Winter Gala Program for their generosity and support. If you would like more information about our fundraiser or would like to purchase tickets please call our office at 781-891-5678, or e-mail us at Thank you in advance for your support.

Sincerely, Pamela C. Caira
Artistic Director, Step-By-Step, Inc.
