FUNDAMENTAL CLASS ELEMENTS
Worship the King
Each Worship Dance class includes some aspect of the following elements:

  • Basic Ballet Technique -
    • - A portion of the class is devoted to learning fundamental ballet positions & steps
  • Interpretive Movement -
    • - This element involves learning to express the lyrics through facial expressions and movements. Dramatic expression is one of the most powerful ways to relay a message. In this way, the song's meaning can have a greater impact.
  • Free Dance -
    • - Many times in scripture, people used dance as a means of personal praise & worship. We encourage students to follow their example by giving them the opportunity to use the steps they have learned to personally express their love for the Lord.
  • Israeli Folk Dance -
    • - Traditionally this type of dance has been primarily used for celebrations. These steps are sometimes incorporated into class time and choreography.
  • Devotions -
    • - We believe that an intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father is the first step to ministry, and therefore we devote a portion of class to Bible study, discussion and prayer.
  • Choreography -
    • - Every Worship Dance class will learn a dance for the presentation at the end of the session.


The above elements are very important to each class. Yet, our main focus remains on teaching our students to express their love for the Father through movement and dance.
