Dance

General Class Info

The purpose of our dance program is to provide quality instruction, with an emphasis on classical ballet technique, in a Christian environment. Classes are offered for ages 2 and up. Classes include ballet, pointe, modern, tap, jazz, and liturgical.

Classes are offered Monday-Thursday. You can see our calendar for the dates of our dance year. Our annual dance recital is planned for May 31, 2025. Additional performance opportunities in the fall are sometimes offered to our students who are intermediate level and higher.

We accept students of all levels. Instructors consider age and prior experience when finding the best class for a student. A placement class is often recommended for new students.

During the summer, we offer Princess Ballerina Camps for ages 3-7 and a dance intensive for Ballet Level III and up. Information for these can be found on our summer camp page.

Class Descriptions

Mommy & Me

For 2 year olds with their moms or other guardians. These students will be introduced to dance in a fun setting that also provides time for bonding between parent and child.

Creative Dance 1 and 2

For 3 & 4 year olds. It teaches the elements of dance: basic ballet terminology, body, space, time, force, along with basic motor skills, and classroom etiquette.

Pre-Ballet

Class for 5 year old students (by Sept. 1). Transitioning from creative dance to Ballet 1, students are taught basic ballet elements with an emphasis on technique.

Ballet

Seven levels of ballet that allow students to learn progressively challenging movements and terminology with a strong emphasis on clean technique. Helps develop strength, discipline, grace, musicality, and flexibility.

Pointe

Course for older ballet students. Teacher placement required in the three levels of pointe classes. Requires a simultaneous prerequisite of ballet technique classes at least two days per week.

Tap

Tap allows students to develop rhythm, musicality, and coordination. Students learn increasingly difficult steps and combinations in each of the four levels through the methods of Al Gilbert and others.

Jazz

These upbeat classes allow students to learn increasingly challenging choreography in each of the three levels.

Beginning Tap/Jazz

Class for students ages 6-8 year olds. Class will equally divide time between introducing students to tap and jazz.

Liturgical

This class is a form of dance that entails movement of the body which accompanies worship as an expression of devotion.

Modern

Contemporary dance class, incorporating the elements of fall and rebound, contraction, use of torso and floor/seated movement. Partner work and improv will be introduced. The techniques of Doris Humphry, Erik Hawkins, Martha Graham and Doug Varone will be used.
