RECREATIONAL DANCE PROGRAM
REC DANCE & REC TAP


 

If you are interested in a dance experience with a more relaxed pace, our REC DANCE classes might suit your family better.

Please view our COMPARISON CHART to see the differences among GCDC, REC and ACRO classes.

 

Offerings:

REC DANCE: REC DANCE 1 and REC DANCE 2 will explore dance movement within a Christian environment. Using only Christian music or instrumentals 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. REC DANCE begins on January 8, 2019 and continues through to our Showcase at the end of May. Enrollment for REC DANCE closes on February 25, 2019.

GIVE THE GIFT OF DANCE! Upon full payment of the 5-month season, we will provide a certificate and a small item to wrap to put under the tree. Items are subject to availability and may include a dancer Christmas ornament, GCDC water bottle or small ballerina rag doll. You can register, pay and pick up your gift at 251 Brookwood Road in Venetia on Mondays and Tuesdays from 4:30-8:30pm until December 11. Please let us know if you will be coming and we will make sure to have a gift available for you.

REC TAP: We have beginning Tap Classes available to our REC dancers ages 6+. This is a class that will require more fine motor skills than our REC DANCE classes as well as being more structured and challenging. Tap Classes begin in September 2018 through to our Showcase at the end of May 2019. Enrollment closes for Tap in early October.
