Dance Attire


Students can wear any comfortable clothing that doesn’t bind or restrict movement.



Shoes specifically designed for dancing are, of course, the best choice for both comfort and maneuverability. However, any leather-soled shoes (pumps, loafers, wingtips, etc.) will also suffice. Shoes to avoid are tennis shoes (which tend to grab the floor and cause ankle and knee injuries) and flip-flops (which are not controllable).

A Step Ahead Dance Studio

In November 1999, with the help of friends, A Step Ahead Dance Studio began offering dance classes at Old City Hall in Redding, California.

The classes cater to those who seek beginning level classes. Our classes are progressive—we start with the most simple beginning patterns and add new patterns each week. Within these classes, we give small amounts of technique in order for our students to add style and grace to their dancing.

Dance instructors: Faith & Ron Lane

Ron and Faith Lane coached the Shasta County’s “Dancing with the Stars 2016” winners of Judges’ Choice Award, with their Argentine Tango based choreography!
