HIS Dance Academy was founded by Beth Huegli and Leslie Glendening. We operate on a 9-month season from September - May.  Maintenance Classes, Master Classes, and Summer Classes are offered June-August. Registration typically begins 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 dance terms and positions are taught throughout the year. HIS Dance is an excellent place for your child to experience a new recreational sport or a professional dance education!

Our Recreational Division is for dancers ages 3 months thru adult. At the age of 8, students and families may choose to continue in our Recreational Division based on age/grade or move into our Graded Technique Division Level, Apprentice 1. Students' progress through the levels at their own pace, sometimes remaining in a level for 2-3 years. Pointe begins at Level Junior 1 at the teacher's discretion. Parents are notified first, so a family decision may be made due to the increased class requirement.
