In March 2004, Next Step Dance, a modern dance company, was founded. In April 2004, the company held their premiere performance in a studio space at the Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
In January 2005, William Charles Crowley became Artistic Director of Next Step Dance and relocated the company to Bay Harbor Islands, FL.
In April 2005, Next Step Dance made its triumphant return to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts with the 2nd Annual Next Step Dance Series, and was also the subject of a feature story in the Lifestyle Section of the Sun Sentinel.
From 2006-2012, the company returned to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts and the Aventura Arts and Cultural Center to present seven more successful annual performances, including the sold out one night engagement: Celebrating the Male Dancer, and was once again honored with a feature story in the Sun Sentinel.
In March 2012, William attended the Graham Technique Refresher Course at the Martha Graham School of Contemporary Dance in New York City, where 25 instructors from the United States, England, France, and Greece came together to analyze, discuss, and debate how to best preserve the Graham Technique for future generations. Stemming from this event, the Nexus: Educational Programming Series was launched.
Currently, master classes, intensives, lecture/demonstrations, adjudications, and guest artist residencies are offered to studios, schools, colleges, universities, dance companies, and arts organizations throughout the United States, Europe, and the Caribbean. Events have occurred in Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Massachusetts, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia, as well as international engagements in Belgium, France, Portugal, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
On December 1, 2016, the company changed its name to Still Point Productions, to better reflect what the organization has developed into over the past 13 years.
This is the company's fourteenth season.
