HIS Pre-professional Graded Technique Division is for students 8+ years old with Ballet experience, who are committed to a minimum of 3 hours of Ballet per week (2 or more classes.)
Students progress through the levels at their own pace, sometimes remaining in a level for 2-3 years.
Pointe begins at Level JR 2 at teacher discretion. Three ballet classes are required per week.
The HIS Dance Ensemble performs an original ballet each year in March at Devos Center for Arts and Worship.
Beautiful costumes, sets and a Biblical message create theatrical performances that the community has come to love and look forward to each year.
HIS Ensemble is open to all Graded Technique students.
Ensemble members commit to extra class requirements and rehearsals throughout the year.
Recreational classes are a great place for young beginning dancers as well as older dancers who wish to refine their dance technique while getting great exercise.
Classes are offered to various ages from 2.5 years old thru teen/adult in ballet, tap, jazz, hip hop, and modern classes.
Classes are 30 minutes -1 hour and meet once a week. They may be taken on their own or in addition to classes within our graded technique division. All 30 min classes must be taken in addition to another HIS class. All 45 -1hr classes are $60/month (discount for those taking multiple classes.)
Devotions are taught throughout the year based on a biblical theme. The year culminates with an all-school showcase in May based upon that theme. All 45-1hr classes participate.
