Fi Steps started in 1991 to create opportunities for youngsters to perform from a safe and fun environment and was established with just 16 members. They opened their Crawley studio in 1993 and also have a branch in Horsham, West Sussex. As a school they have made over an astounding 42 West End performances since their first performance in 1998. They have been honoured to perform at theatres such as Her Majestys, The Royal Albert Hall, Theatre Royal in Drury Lane, The London Palladium and The Royal Albert Hall.
Fi Steps have also performed in Disneyland Paris in 2008/2010/2014, performed in PortAventura Spain in 2009/2011 and also featured performances on MSC Mediteranian Cruise 2013 and this year. Fiona has produced 27 Fi Steps School Show Productions.
Individual students have also taken part in professional touring productions, TV commercials, films, pantomimes as well as gaining places at professional performing arts colleges such as Tiffanys, London Studios, Doreen Birds, Arts Educational and Laines. Past students have worked abroad and on cruise ships. Many have opened their own dance classes and schools. Some have appeared in professional shows such as Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Chicago, Starlight Express, Cats, The War Horse, Sinatra, Whistle Down The Wind and Les Miserables.
Fi Steps have also danced opening World Pole Championships and Miss Pole UK. Endless charity fetes, festivals, pantomines and flashmobs.
””The last 30 years have created so many fantastic opportunities beyond anything I ever dreamed of. Whether students have taken up dance or performance as a career, the one thing that everyone has hopefully taken away from Fi Steps are some incredible memories, friendships and performances in the most amazing places which will be around for many years to come.”FionaCreative Director
