With instruction in multiple forms of dance from Tap, Jazz, Ballet, Hip Hop, Musical Theatre, Modern and numerous others, it has been a training facility of many Kootenay area dancers who have since gone on to successful careers in the dance and theatre industry.

With a family-friendly, supportive atmosphere, teachers and dancers at Steps love to dream, create and, of course, dance 🎭!

Erika & Darcy Krest

“This suite has it all and more. It was relaxing, comfortable, convenient location, and had everything I needed to make a home away from home. Used this space as my base for skiing at Red Mountain. Being close to the conveniences of Trail and only a few minutes from the resort made this the perfect space. The kitchen area has everything you need to prepare a quick meal. The hot tub after a day of riding was the cherry on top. I would highly recommend it. The hosts are very helpful and I hope to come back one day! This is a true jewel.”
