Join SDG this summer for the months of June, July, and August to experience dance training from the comfort of your home. While online learning will never be as good as training in-person, it is our hope that we can be a blessing to dancers who want to keep their skills sharp, those who want to join us but live too far away, or anyone who simply wants to pick up a new hobby.
Classes will run 1-1.5 hrs in length depending on skill level, and will include ballet technique, body conditioning, and variations, as well as some aspects of worship dance. Class sizes are intentionally kept small (4 students maximum) to ensure proper and personal feedback for each student. Improve your technique, connect with others in the dance community, and worship the Lord together with us. Register today!

Ballet is the foundation for most formal dance styles. Ballet classes will be taught using a blend of Royal Academy and Russian Syllabus styles and will focus on teaching students the basics of ballet: correct posture, turnout, and weight placement. Ballet classes balance strength and flexibility training and foster a great work ethic in children. Using physical, verbal, and visual cues, students should be equipped to understand ballet technique with a variety of learning methods.
This class is designed to take the “building blocks” of the ballet class and transition the steps and technique to be used specifically to worship the Lord. Students will learn choreography to a worship song, which they will then present to parents at the end of the term. In addition to learning the steps to a worship song, students are encouraged to develop their artistry and expression in this class, as well as connect personally with the Lord and grow in their faith.
Adult barre classes are also available! Looking to have fun and get fit? Always wanted to dance but never had the opportunity? Adult ballet classes are for you! In addition to learning ballet technique at the barre, these classes also provide an opportunity to dance to worship music and build relationships within a Christian community.
