School of Dance Arts was founded as Step 'N Time, Inc. in 1991 by Heather Hagar in downtown Inverness.
Heather grew Step 'N Time to School of Dance Arts (SDA) and moved to a larger location in 2004. The second location happened to be adjacent to the original. This new location provided students and faculty a proper dance facility with two studios and an excellent faculty of educators.
In 2017 Heather retired from ownership and Rachel Winsler, a former student of SDA, took over as the owner and director of the school.
In the summer of 2019 SDA moved to its current location in Lecanto and under went renovations to build a state of the art dance facility. The doors were ready to open April 1, 2020 but the state wide stay at home order from COVID-19 delayed the start of classes until July of 2020. We are excited to begin our the 2021-2022 season in our new home.
