One Step Beyond (OSB) Rationale

Established in 2008. One Step Beyond fosters talented and motivated young dance students to extend. Supported to develop  leadership and choreographic skills, participants evolve their sense of self belief and creative voice within the dynamic company.  

Admission to OSB is by invitation only. The company is an example of our philosophy to replace competition with collaboration and provides healthy motivation for our young students to step beyond and aspire towards. 

OSB members work with industry professional choreographers and collaborate on innovative performance and artistic projects.

Forging the Path For a Future in Dance

Professional training has become a reality with several former OSB members making dance their career choice. We now have had 8 of our company members move on to tertiary education in dance!
