COMING FALL 2023. We are excited to add Annie Rankin to our dance staff. Annie will be teaching Lyrical and Contemporary Dance.

Lyrical dance combines technical skills from both traditional ballet and jazz to create expressional and fluid movement. Lyrical, hinting at the word, “lyrics”, introduces a concept where the message of the music is what inspires the movement of the dancer. In this class, additionally, we will be introducing different types of specialized kicks, leaps, and turns throughout the year.

Contemporary dance is a combination of skills from ballet, jazz, lyrical, and modern dance. In this class, we will push the boundaries of traditional dance styles to create an artistic style of movement built upon creative uses of rhythm and space. Our focus throughout the year will be sharp movement and lines, emotional connectivity, story-based combinations, and artistic stylization of leaps, kicks, and turns.

Please enable “Cover Fees” at the bottom of the form when paying tuition online. The online tuition payment option is a service we’re pleased to offer this year to our students, but we can only sustain that method long-term without raising tuition costs if the ministry doesn’t have to cover the additional fees. Thank you for helping out in this way.


  • Our Creator is our Common Core Standard! (Genesis 1 / Nehemiah 9:6 / John 1)
  • Music is indisputably held as a universal language and foundational link to all arts and sciences.
  • Art is worship; since we are made by The Creator, in HIS image, and inspired by HIS creation, we are given like abilities to “co-create” and are to do so for HIS kingdom and honor.
  • Artists should produce works that lift up “the good, the true and the beautiful” – both the joys and tragedies – portrayed or communicated truthfully – for with The Father we have hope and redemption, but without Him we are lost.
  • Art is to be done with excellence, and resound deliverance, bring healing, comfort and joy.
  • Culture should benefit from a wider range of art that advances God’s Kingdom principles and can be understood by both Christians and non-Christians.
