Creative movement/Pre-ballet |  preschool
Come get the wiggles out! Preschoolers will learn movement through creative play and use their imaginations to learn basic dance positions. Students will also start to learn ballet and perform in a recital.
While this is not a worship dance class, students will learn how we can glorify God through dance, and will use both Christian and classical music during class.
  • Students should wear comfortable, form fitting attire, and either pink leather ballet shoes (black for boys), or they may wear socks for class. 
  • For the recital, students will need ballet shoes and there may be a costume fee (under $20).
Note: students must be potty-trained for this class.

Mary Coleman might say that ballet was her first true love. She has taught many forms of dance (including ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, and Zumba®), and all ages, 3 years and older. She has classic French ballet and pointe training, as well as instruction in jazz, lyrical, tap, danceline, modern, and even hip hop. Her teaching style strongly emphasizes solid technique, but also acknowledges the need for emotion to become a well-rounded dancer. She has always envisioned Heaven as including dance, and she firmly believes in Psalm 149:3, “Let them praise His name with dancing.”

They have expanded beyond marathon registration to camps and classes, which is the specific service we use. When you click any type of “register” button on the TCHA website, you will be redirected to our page within the Active Network. Here will find a list of our current classes.  Use the filters in the left column to find a specific type of class, grade level, what time a class meets or a particular tutor. You can register one child or multiple children in multiple classes; either way, you will have one convenient and secure check out process with options to pay in full or make a partial payment.
