NLDM Spring Dance Classes

Saturday, February 10, 10:00 am – 1:30 pm


Are you interested in dance but don't really want your child in make-up; do you think you're too old; or is it too expensive?


New Life Dance Ministry is dedicated to training people in the art of dance, and guiding them in how to worship through dance. With dancers from pre-school through retirement, we have a place for everyone. One of our goals is to offer classes in a “Christ-focused” atmosphere that will enhance each student’s self-esteem, confidence, and character and support Christian values by using appropriate music, dance styles, and attire. All of this and at an affordable price! Our tuition is only $50 per class with a yearly registration fee of $40.


Our class schedule is listed below. To sign up for classes, just register here.


Mondays in Studio A

Combo (Ages 5-7) 5:35-6:15pm Class length: 40 minutes.

This class introduces young dancers to the basics of dance. We start by learning how to tell your right foot from your left and stepping and clapping to a beat. From there your child gets a flavor of ballet, tap, and jazz styles of dance by learning simple movements and combinations to music. They also get a chance to experience dancing together as a group and in front of an audience. It’s the perfect place for your aspiring ballerina or dancer to start learning lifelong dance technique in a supportive and fun environment.
