Interpretive Dance

(Girls only)

Teacher: Abby Dill

Mission:  Every time the Bible mentions dancing, it is always for joy.  "Then shall the young women rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old shall be merry. I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow."  Jeremiah 31:13

This class is an expressive, storytelling, ballet-based style of dance. 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. We will learn to tell a story through our movements and emotions.

**Teacher must approve before registering.  Some previous ballet experience is required.

Students in Interpretive may be asked to participate in the Spring Production.  If so, participation in the production will be required of each student.  Check the Calendar and plan accordingly!

Tuition: $200 Per Student Per Year
Materials Fee:  $15 Per Student Per Year (to purchase dance costumes for the production) Material fee needs to be made payable to: Bezalel School
