An eclectic blend of contemporary movement that would be glorifying to GOD will be set to Christian Contemporary music.
Lyrical Classes are a fusion of Ballet & Jazz dance techniques. This class will challenge students to use movements and motion to tell the story of the music and is very expressive.
Contemporary Class is a style of dance that provokes, expresses, and reflects through movement the point of view of the dancer and/or choreographer. It capitalizes on the universal language of dance by using all types of movements. Some “thread elements” visible in contemporary dance include modern, ballet and jazz. Contemporary choreography is set to a variety of sounds, from music to spoken word to the richness of silence.

Specific skills for this level include forward and backward rolls, straddle forward roll, head stand, chin stand, cartwheels, bridges, handstands, one-handed cartwheel, round-off, bridge walking, back-bend kick-over, handstand forward roll and more.

“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.
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:)
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.
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.
