Harmony Dance

Harmony Dance is a creative arts ministry for girls to express their love for Jesus through dance! Each class will center on the concept of using our ability to dance to magnify the Lord and show others the love of Christ. Our pursuit and focus as a dance ministry is to raise up a generation of girls and young women who possess a deep love for the Lord, a solid identity in Christ and a passion for worship. 

No previous dance experience is necessary for any of our age groups or levels. There is a maximum of 10 students per class. All classes and recitals are held at Highlands Church.

All classes begin with prayer and an age appropriate devotional. Only classical instrumental and Christian music selections. Quality ballet curriculum will be used as the foundation of this dance program. Classes and curriculum are designed with a beginner/intermediate level student in mind. We offer pre-ballet classes starting at age 3 where younger students will receive age-appropriate, stretching, strengthening and creative movement. Starting at Level 3 and up, students will explore Jazz, Lyrical movement and dramatic interpretation.
