2019-20 School Year Classes
Enrollment is now closed for the 2019-20 School Year. Please check back on March 1 for our 2020 Summer Session classes!
(If there are no classes listed here, we are not currently offering Mini-Sessions for this age group at this time.)
All classes learn dance technique with emphasis on movement concepts such as time, space, and force. This teaches the students not only the steps but also the underlying qualities that make the steps unique! Students may also do improvisational dancing for about 5 minutes as a form of self-expression and/or worship.
Creative Dance/Ballet – Ages 3-5 Students in Creative Dance/Ballet classes learn the fundamental characteristics of movement through movement games and dance technique. Dancers will learn about time, space, force and music as well as ballet steps during all activities. This is considered a Creative Movement/Pre-Ballet course.
Tumbling – Ages 3-5 See Tumbling information below.
