Dance: PreK - Kindergarten

Tutor: Ms. Esther Class Time: 2:10 – 3:10 School Year Commitment: Full Year Tuition for each semester: $85/semester My goal is to provide an introduction ballet using classical and Christian music. The girls will be learning basic arm and feet positions, beginning steps, and simple turns and jumps, posture, and creative movement. These techniques will be incorporated into our performance pieces. As I teach my students, I want to show them something even more beautiful than steps–their heart. A child’s heart is so precious. My desire is to show the girls how to use their heart to worship God through dance. Every heart is special to God no matter how big or how small. Class Requirements:

 

  • Modest leotard
  • Skirt
  • Tights
  • Ballet shoes (split-sole shoes work best)
  • Hair pulled back
  • No necklaces or gum
  • Costumes will be required for the Spring Performance, but an effort will be made to keep the cost reasonable.

Ms. Esther

Dance Tutor

Hello, my name is Ms. Esther. I’m a senior in high school and am currently enrolled in an online college program. As the second oldest of eight kids, I love playing with my brothers and sisters and our two dogs. I also enjoy spending time with my friends and participating in youth group. Some of my hobbies include crafts, singing on the worship team at church, and creative writing. I was also a student leader for my speech club, a VBS leader, and did puppets for AWANA Cubbies. I became a Christian when I was three, and I was baptized when I was nine. Life as a Christian has not always been easy, but through it all God is faithful. I’m striving to follow God with all my heart, soul, mind, and strength. When I was five, my mom enrolled me in my first dance class at a Christian dance studio. I loved it so much that I continued dance classes for nine years. As I got older I assisted with some dance classes for young girls. This past year I started my own dance classes called Graceful Hearts for the girls at our church. I’m very proud of what the girls have accomplished and have enjoyed working with them. Although I’ve only been teaching ballet for a year, I do have a heart devoted to the Lord and a passion and love for dance.
