PRE-SCHOOL CLASSES – JUST CLASS TRACK: Half-hour class, introducing kids to the basics of ballet and creative movement. This is a “Just Class” and 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

WORSHIP/IMPROV CLASS: Our Worship/Improv classes are structured to help grow the skills of expression and improvisation in using the gift of dance in worship. 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 is that these classes provide an opportunity for students (and parents) to grow deeper in their relationship with Christ as they more fully grasp doing all to the glory of God as we “praise His name with dancing!” (Colossians 3:17, Psalm 149:3)

BIBLE STUDY AND EVENTS: Our Bible studies dive deeper into understanding the Bible verses we memorize in our Posture For Life™ program, looking at the context as well as key Hebrew or Greek words and their definitions, with special focus on 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.
