“Dance is the hidden language of the soul of the body.”

~Martha Graham

All of our dance classes will help students achieve balance, coordination, flexibility, and grace in their movement through a ballet foundation. Dance styles beyond ballet will also be explored, as the overall intent of our dance program is to develop well-rounded dancers with a focus on storytelling and worship through choreographed movement.
