REC DANCE 1 (ages 3-5) and REC DANCE 2 (ages 6-8) 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 11, 2021 and continues through to our Showcase at the end of May. Enrollment for REC DANCE closes on February 15, 2021. 2021 classes will be taught by company instructor, Mrs. Katie Conti.

REC dancers have one performance at the end of the season. This showcase takes place at Crossroads Church. Along with our REC dancers, this showcase also features dancers in our BALLET, ACRO and TAP classes.  To participate in the showcase, dancers must be enrolled at least for the months of March, April and May. The showcase is an informal presentation of what the girls have been learning in class.  It will be approximately 60 minutes in length with a cookie reception to follow.  There is showcase fee (see TUITION AND FEES), but no ticket cost for this event. We will need a head count ahead of time and parents will need to sign up to bring items for the reception.

SHOWCASE FEE: There is a family showcase fee of $15 for dancers to participate in the REC, TAP & ACRO-DANCE SHOWCASE.
