Glorifying and Enjoying God Through Dance

Upper Division 

Our Upper Dance Division is comprised of classes for students age 8 and older. Placement in classes depends on the ability level of the student. These classes are designed to classically train students in ballet, tap, jazz, and modern. We also encourage our dancers to attend our conditioning classes in order to enhance their training. A new student entering our program will need to be evaluated for placement by the Director or one of our senior teachers. During the spring semester, our teaching staff will evaluate students in class and recommend a level for the student for the following year. This recommendation will be given out to students in their Student Registration.
