“Let them praise His name with dancing” Psalm 149:3 

OUR CLASSES

At Dancing Towards Destiny, our classes are designed to span over ‘levels’, with each level covering a two-year period. The first year encompasses the theory behind dance in which the dancers are taught correct techniques as well as the art of choreography. The second year consists of putting into practice what has been learnt through practical application. The Dancing Towards Destiny bi-annual concerts and outreaches are the highlights of the year and allow the girls to demonstrate what they have learnt and as well as helping to build confidence.

During their first year, we use this time to build your child up, encouraging her in becoming a lady through a life of elegance, good posture and self-respect. The second year we teach the practical application of what they have learnt through choreographed dances. These levels are flexible as we base them on the individual dancer to suit his/her ability and confidence.

LEVELS

Our first and most important goal is to teach the girls to worship God. We use small technique dances to teach them basic movement that will help them express themselves in worship. Secondly we aim to teach our girls good rhythm, posture and proper movement.
