Finding Inspiration at Every Turn

Our Story

SOBD-Faculty.jpg

Steppin’ Out Ballroom Dance was founded in 2006 and moved to Rancho Cucamonga in 2011.

The founders, Chris and Angela, have been performing, competing, and teaching for over a decade. As the owners of Steppin’ Out Ballroom Dance, they are so proud to bring this exceptional and unique art form to the Inland Empire.

We are a dance family, and all of our students are part of that family. Our entire staff believes in the life-changing effects that dance has on adults, and the powerful, uplifting, and life-long life skills it builds in children.
