...more than just dance
Effective Friday, March 13, HIS Dance Academy will be closed.
While there is much to be grateful for, the financial loss to the studio during the shut down is significant. There will be no tuition collected. The income which we generate from both the March Ensemble performance and the May Showcase is lost as well. Would you please consider donating to HIS Dance Academy to help keep us going until classes resume?
Believing that our God is Bigger!
Welcome to HIS Dance Academy! We are located on 29th St. near Breton Rd in our new, approximately 10,000 sq. ft. state of the art facility.
We offer Pre-Professional Ballet and Modern. Graded Technique Classes meet a minimum of twice a week in a positive, safe environment. We offer outreach opportunities including an original ballet performance. Students will be professionally trained should they have post high school and professional aspirations.
We also offer classes in our Recreational Division in Ballet, Jazz, Tap, Combo, Hip Hop and Modern. These classes meet once a week and are available for students ages 2-adult including those with special needs. The recreational classes may be taken on their own or in addition to the Graded Technique classes to round out Ballet training.
Our dedicated staff members have many years of experience and are committed to upholding the mission of HIS Dance Academy; to develop Christian character through excellence in dance instruction while reaching the community for Christ. All teachers agree to our statement of faith and commit to praying with and for their students.
For our Homeschool families, we offer many daytime classes.
Serving the greater Grand Rapids community, we were honored to be selected as one of the top 2016-2018 Dance Schools by GRKids.com. We believe that choosing HIS Dance Academy will leave a lasting impression on the heart. Stop by our studio and try a FREE class. We want to show you what we are all about!
Mission Statement: Developing Christian character through excellence in dance instruction while reaching the community for Christ.
Delighted they dance all day long...they can't keep it quiet! Psalm 89:16 Msg
HIS Dance Academy operates on a 9 month season, September - May. Summer Classes are offered June-August. We typically begin registration in March for Summer Classes and June 1 for Fall Classes.
A Vaganova based curriculum is used in all Ballet classes. In addition, Bible verses and applications relating to all terms and positions are taught throughout the year. HIS Dance is a great place for your child to experience a new recreational sport or a professional dance education!
Our Recreational Division is for dancers ages 2 years (mini session) thru adult. At the age of 8 years old students and families may choose to continue in our Recreational Division which is based on age/grade or move into our Graded Technique Division Apprentice 1. Students progress through the levels at their own pace, sometimes remaining in a level for 2-3 years. Pointe begins at Junior 2 at teacher discretion.
Summer Session begins June 17
2019/20 runs Sept 3, 2018-May 21, 2020
