In HIS Steps

Christian Dance Studio & Performing Arts

Glorifying God through the Arts

“In HIS Steps” is a contemporary, Christian-based Dance Studio and Performing Arts Center offering professional instruction in ballet, pointe, lyrical, tap, hip-hop, Jazz, modern, contemporary, and all-boys classes. We also offer voice, piano, guitar; both private and group sessions.

We have owned Miss Amy’s School of Dance since 1996, but several years ago the Lord heavily burdened my heart that He created the “arts” and that we as Christians are to use them in a way that would be pleasing to Him. Through many years of prayer, tons of help from our wonderful friends and family, and by the grace of God, “Miss Amy’s School of Dance” expanded into “In HIS Steps” and opened on January 12th, 2002.

This is a studio where students of all ages can come to learn and grow in the arts in a Christian environment. Our mission is to teach our students to reach the world with the gospel through the arts and to teach them how to use the arts to glorify, honor, and praise our Heavenly Father. We are on this earth for a very short time and for two purposes: TO KNOW HIM AND MAKE HIM KNOWN!!

Testimonials


“In His Steps” has been such a blessing to our family. My daughter has grown as a dancer, but more importantly as a person, and the positive influence of her teachers and friends at “In His Steps” has played a part in that growth. The studio is a fun, but educational environment, and the fact that dance and the arts are portrayed as a gift from God is awesome. Instead of learning to dance because it’s fun or so that she can climb some ballet ladder of success, my daughter is learning to dance to give God glory for blessing her with a desire to dance.

—Lalla P.

I love In His Steps! The atmosphere is awesome. The owners and staff are super friendly and professional. My daughter loves her ballet & tap combo class! They all look sooo cute. Most of all it is A CHRISTIAN STUDIO so my child is getting allot more than just dance! They pray and talk about the love of Jesus while getting high quality dance training. I highly recommend this studio. Me and my child look forward to attending class every week:)

—Taffany A.

This studio is wonderful. The teachers all really love kids and take care to make sure every student does well. The owner’s heart for ministry shines through in all she does, and the environment is not overly pushy or stuffy. A great place to learn–my daughter has been there 4 years and loves it.

—Shana H.

My daughter has been dancing here for 3 years. She loves it. She has learned so much. Not only does she have fun, but it keeps her active. Anyone looking for a place for their kids to dance, sing, or act I highly recommend In His Steps.
