Since our founding in 1995, our vision has been “Excellence in Dance Training for the Glory of God.”
We believe that each student has been perfectly created by God with a unique set of talents and should have the opportunity to train to the highest standard possible. To this end we offer instruction in multiple dance styles from qualified teachers in proper technique, strength training, flexibility, musicality, choreography principles and skills that coordinate with our renowned syllabus structure.
Within our studios we maintain high standards in music, costumes, and style, teaching students to proclaim God’s truth through dance. Not only will they receive excellence in dance training here, but they’ll learn about the God who loves them through prayer and short devotionals to start or end class times.
Your student will have teachers who are godly role models . We asked ourselves the question “What makes a studio a Christian studio?” It isn’t the barres, wooden floors, or mirrors. It’s the teachers. It’s the life stories they bring and the love of Christ they desire to share with their students. Our teachers are passionate about loving the Lord, loving their students, and using their gift of dance to train the next generation to do the same.
Our teachers push students to reach the potential we see in them. We believe in them more than they believe in themselves. Here they will gain confidence and develop skills such as hard work, commitment, hanging on to your values, how to overcome challenges, patience, inner strength and character. These are skills that are transferrable into any career that God will call them into later in life.
Arise graduates have gone on to dance with professional Christian ballet companies, post-secondary dance and music programs, Bible College, and mission work.Lastly, what you’ll gain at Arise…is a lifelong family.
