Why Dance?

Dance is a powerful art form socially and artistically in our culture, and as we call out our students’ gifts, we need to offer deeper, richer, and broader educational and performance opportunities integrated with a Christian worldview.
Sign up for fall after-school programs by Thursday, August 23! Check out dance classes like Beginning Dance for grades K-1, Ballet I for grades 1-2, Ballet II for grades 3-4, and Jazz/Hip-Hop for grades 4-5. Visit cpalions.org/after-school to sign up and see a listing of other programs!
