Summer Praise Dance

The Summer Praise Dance group was created during the summer of 2013 to create community within our studio, to reach out to our surrounding community in a new way, and to teach our students how dancing can be used as a form of worship.

We journeyed our first few seasons by presenting one dance each summer as special music. During Summer 2017, we presented our first mini-ballet The Wall: a Parable, and Summer 2018, we presented Prodigal. We love dancing together and worshipping the Lord and are excited to experience a new journey during Summer 2019!

Information for Dancers:

Our Summer Praise Intensive will be held June 10-14th, 5:30-7:30 p.m. Dancers must be present all five days to participate. 

Due to large interest last year, we may only have limited spots available.

This group is open to rising 2nd-12th graders. There is a fee of $25 to borrow costumes for the summer. Each dancer will also need their own black leotard, pink tights, and ballet shoes. We understand that you may have vacation, other commitments, etc., so go ahead and plan your summer- this ballet will be choreographed to easily adapt to many venues, number of dancers, and absences!
