Recreational Dance Program

If you are interested in a dance experience with a more relaxed pace, our REC DANCE and REC HIP HOP might suit your family better. The lower levels of our ACRO-DANCE program are also open to our recreational dancers, but please note that they are more structured and challenging than our REC classes.

Please click here to see the differences between GCDC classes and our REC program.

 

Offerings:

 

REC DANCE: This class will explore dance movement within a Christian environment. Using only Christian music and modest movement, girls will be exposed to various disciplines on an introductory level. They will also experience the use of different worship elements such as tambourines and ribbons. Each class will begin with scripture and prayer.

REC HIP HOP: We will have fun learning hip-hop basics and fun combinations that will improve the girls’ rhythm and coordination skills. This popular style of dance does have its modesty challenges, but we will be careful to maintain GCDC standards.

ACRO-DANCE dress codeClick here for details on ACRO-DANCE dress code.

REC DANCE dress code -

1. Black short-sleeved leotard

2. Black capris

3. Shorts or skirt to cover the bum

4. Pink ballet slippers

While you do not have to use official GCDC uniform pieces in REC DANCE, you can visit the GCDC classes page to see an example of the dress code. The black leotard and capris will be the base used for the Parent Showcase. We will provide embellishments to those pieces.

REC HIP HOP dress code -

1. Dance Sneakers – Jazz shoes are acceptable, but we highly recommend wearing dance sneakers for the padding and support of the foot. Most regular sneakers are too grippy to be safe when turning.

2. Any modest clothing in which the dancer can comfortably move is acceptable. No shorts above mid-thigh or cami strap tops.
