Welcome to Steps For The Future!
... a Performing Arts group for Adults with differences.
Steps For The Future is a Derby-based Charity providing dance and music classes and a health & wellbeing club for adults with differences, assuring a safe and supportive environment for our students. We are a Person Centred student-led service promoting our skills not our differences.
Please visit the "PERFORMANCES" page to see pictures of Steps performing at the Old Market Hall, opened by the Mayor and Mayoress of Derby, John and Juliette Whitby and also to see pictures of our performance at the outgoing Mayor's Civic Dinner, or see below for the full range of pictures.
Derbyshire Constabulary were game enough to attend the dance class and a great time was had by all. See the "Classes" page for some photo's. Many thanks to Derbyshire Police force - community work in action!
We have many companies, organisations and individuals who support Steps for the Future. In recognition of this we have set up a "FRIENDSHIPS" page to acknowledge their support. Tell us if you would like to be included on this page and have a look at who supports us.
We work closely with Livewell and Steps for the Future run Health and Wellbeing workshops on a weekly basis. Please check out the "LIVEWELL" page for further details. We also have a dedicated Facebook page for the Steps/Livewell sessions - for further information, please go to:

"I believe Steps for the Future offers its students the opportunity to engage in occupations that have meaning to them, leading to an increase in confidence and self esteem. Students are able to build skills in numerous areas including communication and interaction, adaptability, responsibility, problem solving and organisation.”
Julie, Specialist Occupational Therapist
“Steps has [...] provided a unique opportunity to develop socially with others, building supportive networks, friendships and links into parts of the community."
Rob, Social Worker
The past few years saw a variety of performances and activities hosted by volunteers, staff and students from Steps For The Future.
Due to the continuous hard work from all the students, staff and volunteers, Steps For The Future performed a fantastic 'Steptacular' at Deda Dance Centre in Derby in June 2016 (see 'performances' tab). This was the third time we have put on a show, so thanks from us for all the support you gave. Everyone worked very hard to create this show.
Steps have also performed at the International Women's Day for the last 4 years and also work with Amber Valley CVS and Derby Carers.
Steps For The Future is a registered charity in the UK (1144198).
