A Step Beyond has changed me.

Teaching dance brings me joy.

ASB is here for the whole family.

A Step Beyond is a creative youth development organization serving youth and their families living at or below the poverty line with free after-school dance classes, academic support, and social services.  In order to create deep, meaningful, and lasting relationships that will ensure the artistic, academic, and social-emotional development of our youth, we make a ten-year commitment to support students and their families from 3rd grade to high school graduation and beyond.

100% of ASB students are expected to graduate high school and immediately enroll in college or career programs after completing our 10-year program
