DANCE CLASSES

Little Praisers

(Ages 4-6) 

 

Praising the LORD in dance begins with our youngest students! The LITTLE PRAISERS class is a     45-minute class designed for 4-6 year olds, although we have had some 3 year-olds involved as well. Little Praisers learn to worship God with their whole bodies in a structured environment. They learn to follow the leader (teacher) in movements and in learning simple dance terms. The music we use are Scripture songs, Worship Choruses, and even some International Songs!

Ballet / Interpretive Dance  1, 2, 3 & 4

 

These dance classes teach the basics of ballet in level 1 and then move on to more complex steps in levels 2 and 3. The balletic style is sometimes combined with other dance styles to create "interpretive" movements, hence the class name. As in all our classes, modesty and the desire to glorify the Lord is at the heart of all instruction. Dancers are required to wear ballet shoes (leather is suggested) in these classes and hair should be in a bun.

**Please contact us for class placement. Teacher must approve before registering.
