Whatever you do
in word or deed,
do all in the name of
the Lord Jesus,
giving thanks
to God
the Father
through Him.
Colossians 3:17

Let them

Praise His name

with Dancing!

Psalm 140:3

Where should your Dancer begin?
We’ve divided our Dancers by age & skill level. Dancers wishing to take classes labeled “Intermediate” or Level I and higher,
need approval from our Director and Instructors before attending. Divisions ARE NOT set in stone.
If a younger student demonstrates mastery of the skills their age group offers, they may test into older, more advanced classes.
Additionally, if a student needs increased technique, they may be asked to attend a class at a lower level or age category.

All Dancer must have Teacher Approval and be registered before attending classes.

 How do we determine when a Dancer moves up a level?
   A dancer’s transition to a more advanced level is unique to each student. The amount of time spent in any level is directly related
to the amount of effort they put into class and how quickly they apply the corrections given by their instructor. When a dancer demonstrates mastery of the techniques required for the level they attend, they may, with teacher approval, move to the next level. We typically review our dancer’s progress and determine placement in the fall and beginning of summer.

So many choices… What’s the difference?          

 

What are “Mustard Seeds”? Matthew 13:31-32
“Mustard Seeds” are our Pre-School and early Elementary K5-7yrs Dancers.  In a fun, imaginative format, they learn and build upon foundational skills in Ballet, Tap, and Jazz. Each age division is designed to accommodate beginning students as well as those with past dance experience.

Ballet is a classical dance form characterized by grace, precise of movements, elaborate formal gestures, steps, and poses. It is highly technical and has its own French vocabulary.

 Ballet-Pointe Ballet is part of Classical Ballet Technique. Dancers support all their body weight on the tips
  of fully extended feet within Pointe shoes.

Pas De Deux – Simply put a dance for two persons. Technically defined as a set dance for a ballerina and a danseur noble, consisting typically of an entrée, an adagio, a variation for each dancer, and a coda.

Variations are dances within a dance, solo parts for both men and women. Dancers in our class learn variations from several classical and contemporary ballets.

Barre Fitness is a full-body workout that utilizes ballet based movements to condition your entire body. In this low impact workout you will use isometric holds and contractions to work multiple muscle groups at a time. You will strengthen your core and challenge every muscle in your body! Workout will be set to high energy Christian music! Great for your body and your soul!

 Pointe Conditioning is a head-to-toe serious workout designed to strengthen the core, legs, ankles and 
  feet in preparation for future Pointe work. You don’t have to be planning to be a Pointe dancer to attend. 
  It’s a great idea for dancers and non-dancers alike!

Contemporary Dance combines elements of Modern, Jazz, Lyrical, and Classical Ballet.
As the word “Contemporary” implies, this style morphs to the “Now” of our culture and
often expresses a point of view.



Irish
Stepdance is a style of performance dance with its roots in traditional Irish dance.
It is generally characterized by a stiff
 upper body and quick and precise movements of the feet.
It can be performed solo or in groups.

 

Jazz Dance takes traditional Ballet movements and bends them to match the rhythm
and mood of Jazz music.




Lyrical Dance
is a fusion of Ballet and Jazz technique and is characterized by
graceful, fluid movements.

 

Hip Hop began as “Street Dance” performed to Hip-hop music. Its popularity earned this high energy dance style recognition as a valid dance form. Hip Hop combines breaking, locking and      popping with traditional dance moves and poses.









Tap Dance
is a dance in which the rhythm or rhythmical variation is audibly tapped out with the toe or heel by a dancer wearing shoes with special hard soles or with taps




Modern Dance
rejects many of the strict rules of Classical Ballet and utilized its own, specialized, more abstract techniques.
