Class A: Awe
Each week students will do dance concept exploration exercises, practice movement skills, and interact with the Bible in fun ways, creating their own mini-pieces. (Ages 5-6ish)
Class B: Beauty
Weekly classes consist of exploring movement concepts through fun activities, practicing dance skills, studying the Bible in creative ways and sharing and showing dances. (Ages 7-8ish)
Class C: Celebration
Students will grow in strength, flexibility, balance, and grace through warm-up technique exercises (modern & ballet-based). They will explore a different dance concept weekly and interact creatively with the Scriptures with time to create and share their choreography and improvisations. (Ages 9-10ish)
Class D: Delight
Students will continue to improve their dance technique during warm-up exercises (modern & ballet-based) and skill development in the center. They will expand their movement repertoire through the weekly dance concept explorations and have opportunities to work as individuals or groups to create choreography or improvisations and show them for feedback. Some of these may come out of their responses to the Word in the discovery Bible study portion of the class, where students will have opportunities to facilitate the group discussion. (Ages 11-14ish)
