Radical Step is an elite modern dance school based in Fendalton - Christchurch, New Zealand.


With a fusion of dance styles, Radical Step offers a unique confidence building approach to dance education and provides students with opportunities to learn and perform in a creative, professional environment.



Radical Step Dance Studio is a brilliant dance studio and I am grateful my 3 daughters have had the opportunity to attend.  Miss Kelsey is a talented and inspiring teacher who nurtures each individual and encourages every team member to participate.  Radical Step Dance Studio grows confidence in all of the dancers and teaches them to approach all endeavours no matter how daunting with discipline and commitment.

It always amazes me when I watch the students perform - it is not just about the technique and mastering the dancing, it is about the pure joy and pride they all seem to have.

The sheer joy on my daughter’s face  just tells you how much fun she is having.  Miss Kelsey is an amazing teacher who inspires their potential both individually and as part of a team.  There is such a wonderful balance between having a great time and the dancers building their self-confidence.

Both my girls have been at Radical Step for a number of years and it's been a fantastic experience for both of them.

Kelsey is an amazing teacher, she works really hard at making sure the classes are fun, while ensuring the students become more confident in their dancing with every session.

We have been really impressed with the standard of dancing from the school and also Kelsey’s commitment to getting the most from her students. The girls absolutely love it, it's a very supportive and encouraging environment, and our daughters have gained a huge amount of confidence from being part of it.
