Where Team Becomes Family
Next Level All-Star Dance, located in central New Jersey, is dedicated to developing talent at the recreational, competitive, and professional level. Proprietor and Executive Director, Gina Meyer, is committed to ensuring that every student is able not only to thrive in a positive, family oriented environment, where they can express themselves, but also to ensuring that the dancers have all the resources to be their personal best and excel to their very own "next level."
Next Level offers technique classes in ballet, lyrical, contemporary, jazz, musical theater, hip-hop, acro-arts, and floor work, and thrilled to be able to offer Master Classes to its students at various times throughout the year, bringing in professional choreographers from New York City, and from all across the country. Through the Company's Competitive Team, Next Level encourages its dancers to put their technique, skills and showmanship to the test at convention, dance intensives, and at highly selective competitions around the Country, where they have been recognized for their choreography, their technique and overall entertainment, finding their way to the top 5 in one of the largest World Dance Championships the past 3 seasons.
Next Level stresses the fact that respect and the caliber of the dancer's character is one of the most important aspects a dancer can bring to stage or a room full of other dancers. Next Level is therefore most proud for receiving recognition, accolades, and even a Regional Competition team award named after the Studio for its Competitive Team's sportsmanship and unity towards other competitive studios and their students.
The awards and recognition only tell one story though. Next Level believes strongly of its obligation to give back to the community. This year, the dancers performed at a local nursing home during the holidays and participated in resident activities. The Studio has also been involved in various fundraisers, such as helping children fight against cancer, stocking food banks, and providing toys for children who are suffering ailments in hospitals. Proceeds from an in-house Solo Competition went to the American Heart Association, and proceeds from a "Parent Dance-Off" at this year's Recital will be donated to a local Ronald McDonald House which helps keep families with ill children together and near the care and resources they need. Next Level believes that developing a dancer is more than just dance.
As Next Level enters its seventh (7th) season this year, Gina and her Studio welcomes all interested dancers wherever they are at on their dance journey today. Next Level also welcomes collaboration with other Studios and choreographers who share in the mission of helping dancers excel to their highest level, as individuals, as a team, and ultimately as family.
