    CLASS DESCRIPTIONS:

  • PRE-SCHOOL CLASSES: Half-hour class, introducing kids to the basics of ballet and creative movement. This is a “Just Class” so does not include our full program with spring production; however, students will learn a short dance to perform for parents at the end of each semester. $40/month per class.
  • BEGINNER LEVEL - PRODUCTION TRACK: Students usually remain in our beginner level for 2-3+ years as we desire for students to develop a solid foundation of proper technique and muscle strength before progressing to Intermediate. Students are required to take 1 Beginner Level Production class per week at this level. $80/month per class.
  • INTERMEDIATE LEVEL - PRODUCTION TRACK: Students, usually ages 11-15, receiving teacher recommendation progress to this level. Students are required to take 2 Intermediate Level Production classes per week at this level. $85/month per class.
  • ADVANCED LEVEL - PRODUCTION TRACK: Students, usually ages 15-adult, who have been at the Intermediate Level at least 1 year, receiving teacher recommendation may progress to this level. Students are required to take 3 Advanced Level Production classes per week at this level. $85/month per class.
  • Note: Students in Production Track are welcome to take “Just Class” classes at their level in addition to their required classes, and are encouraged to take the Worship/Improv Class and Bible Study.

  • JUST CLASS: “Just Class” classes are now being offered for those who would like to take class and receive strong ballet training in a family-friendly, God-honoring environment, but are not able to commit to our full program. $80/month per class.
  • WORSHIP/IMPROV CLASS: Our Worship/Improv classes are structured to help you use the gift of dance as an expression of worship, and to help grow the skills of improvisation and expression. Classes include a brief warm-up, interactive exercises and group choreography, along with an opportunity to just dance in worship before our God. Our desire for these classes is for it to help provide the opportunity for our students (and parents) to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ, and come to more fully grasp how we are called to do all to the glory of God, and how we are meant to praise His name with dancing! (Colossians 3:17, Psalm 149:3) $40/month per class or $15 per class.
  • BIBLE STUDY AND EVENTS: Our Bible studies focus on diving deeper into understanding the Bible verses we memorize in our Posture For Life™ program, looking at the context as well as the Hebrew or Greek words and their definitions, as well as talking about how these Words should and do affect our lives. We desire our students to grow in their knowledge and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We also do several themed “Events” throughout the year, often including crafts and games along with specific study. $40/month per class.
