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

El Alebrije Ballet

Join A Step Beyond November 10 and 11 for a reimagining of The Nutcracker ballet through dance, theater, music, and puppetry. The story begins at Maria’s Quinceñera and through the magic of the night, the audience journeys to Mexico in search of Maria’s father.
