2021-2022 Class Season – Northfield


Reign Dance Theater brings hope to life on both sides of the curtain – and beyond!

We invite you to join us as Reign Dance Theater teacher, Elise (Johnson) Barraza, offers ballet and worship classes in Northfield, MN!  The Bible tells us to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength” and worship dance expresses all of those!  Engaging our physical bodies in movement provides a powerful way to worship God in a fullness that cannot be reached any other way.

Each ballet and worship class is designed to help every student, regardless of skill level, to grow in worship through dance and prepare as kingdom ambassadors of Jesus Christ to carry His heart of love into the church and around the world.


In preparation for the arrival of Baby Barraza due the end of August, Elise Barraza will be on maternity break for the Summer and Fall of 2022.  No classes or camps will be offered in Northfield during this time.  Northfield classes are planned to resume in January of 2023.  Hope to see you then!


CLASSICAL BALLET (ages 7+)*:   Beginner-Intermediate traditional ballet classes designed for learning foundational ballet technique through the disciplines of barre warmup, routines in center, stretching, and choreography.  Perfect for those desiring to dance with skill and excellence not only in personal worship, but also as a platform for effectively sharing God’s heart of love with others through dance.

KIDS CLASS (ages 5-7)*:   An introductory blend of ballet and worship in a format for kids to engage in and enjoy “praising His name with dancing”!

WORSHIP DANCE (ages 12+)*:  A dance class not focused on technique or specific movement, but rather on the heart behind the movement.  Designed for learning to follow the Holy Spirit in dance.  Classes include creative warmup, teaching time, exercises to facilitate putting into movement the things God is speaking to the heart.  Ends with an open time to dance in worship.

*We realize everyone’s ability to focus and engage develops at different rates, so specific ages may not apply in all situations.  Students may be considered on an individual basis where those able to focus may be included and those unable to focus may be asked to postpone involvement.
