My daughter has been attending this academy for the past 8 years. Helen is such a dedicated teacher, she fosters such a sense of pride and achievement in all her students. At the same time the academy is one of the friendliest family orientated place to spend time in. No matter what type of dance you love or what age you are this is the place for you.

it is a nurturing environment for both younger and older students.  My daughter has been in the academy for some 11 years and never likes to miss a day ... I thought she would start at 3years and go for a term or so, and here we still are as she loves the academy so much!  It is simply part of her life, and dance helped her in so many other aspects on a day to day basis. Helen is a very dedicated teacher, but even more than that she is very nurturing and caring of all her students. 

Rhythm n Steps is more than just a top class dance studio. Helen Anderson fosters a real feeling of family and belonging for the children. It's clear that she has a passion and a love for teaching and mentoring children (and adults) to dance. My son has been dancing with Helen since he was 4 years old. It is here that he has made strong friendships and has developed a total love for dance. It isn't just ballet as there are other dance forms on offer too. My son also does Jazz and Tap and loves them both. Your child will be taught by an extremely qualified teacher. They will be taught in a safe and caring environment which is based not only in her expert knowledge of dance but in knowing and understanding how children learn best. If you want your child to love dance, learn it in a safe way, be technically perfect and be part of a big family then this is the Academy for you. ABSOLUTELY THE BESY DANCE SCHOOL IN AUCKLAND!

I joined Rhythm n Steps Dance Academy not as a child but as a 22year old adult looking to finish my RAD examinations and also for a place to dance. During my 6years there i have had the most amazing experience. Ms Helen Anderson is the best teacher you could ask for to teach you or your child how to dance. I have danced since i was 4 years old in anothee country and have had many teachers over the years. I can say with confidence and with no doubt that Ms.Anderson was the only teacher that put in the effort with me. Teaching me and correcting years of wrong or bad technique. With Ms.Anderson i went further in my dancing then just the classroom, she put me on stage in her shows and i even got a solo!! At 27years old!! I felt like a litte girl in a tutu all over again. If you are looking for a dance teacher, whatever your age, i highly recommend Rhythm n Steps Dance Academy. It is more than a dance school, its a second family who all love to dance. You will not regreat sendig your child or yourself her. There are not many places in the dance world where the teacher puts in the same effort into your technique growth and development refardless if you are dancing to be a professional or dancing for love. Ms Anderson will create the best dancer out of you no matter your age, shape or ability. She makes you work, but like me you will always thank her for it.

Rhythm n Steps dance academy - my daughter has been part of this family orientated academy for 11 years - Helen Anderson is more than a teacher her dedication to all her students is evident from that little fairy magic/pirates to her advanced students. We feel so blessed to have our daughter taught by Helen an the friendships we have made in the academy are life long. Thank you R n S for being a large part of our life :-)

Attending Rhythm n Steps Dance Academy was one of the best things I have ever done. I was lucky enough to be taught by Helen Anderson for 13 years. Without a teacher so dedicated and passionate, I wouldn't have ended up where I am today. The loving and caring environment that Rhythm n Steps has allows kids of all ages to interact, just like a big family. The amount of time, effort and commitment that Helen puts into every student is unbelievable. She is one of the most dedicated people I have ever met. She has helped me on the way to reaching my dream and without her by my side, I never would have made it. She believes in you even when you don't believe in yourself. Rhythm n Steps is undoubtedly the best Dance Academy you could possibly attend. Every moment spent at the academy is a memory you will treasure for the rest of your life.
