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 2 thru adult. At the age of 9, 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 2 at the teacher's discretion. Parents are notified first, so a family decision may be made due to the increased class requirement.

  • HIS Dance Ensemble 23-24

The Ensembles of HIS Dance Academy are designed for dancers who desire to intentionally develop their artistic and performance abilities (in addition to their technical abilities) through participating in a professional scale Ballet. Ensemble dancers have increased time commitment during school and summer, including rehearsals outside of technique class. Ensemble placement is decided by a dancer’s level, not age.

     Apprentice Level AP1 & AP 2 

  • Outreach Performance Group

HIS Students are always encouraged to take dance back to their home church. 

When the studio requests special events, our Outreach dancers, who have been part of the summer "Outreach Class," are sent out into the community.

God's Girls, our Special Needs dancers, have the option of participating in outreach events throughout the year.


Our Calendar fills with special events! Tutu Week. Bring a Friend Week, Daddy and Me class, Ensemble Productions, and more! Printed copies of the calendar are available at the studio, or see the Upcoming Events calendar on the homepage.
