Modern and Ministry

Dance Ministry (6th grade – Adult)

Dance Ministry is a Christian based movement class. Students in this class may perform choreography at local churches and events. (The adult session is scheduled separately, please contact the office for more information.)

At DDC&G, Pre-Modern is offered in order to expose dancers to different movement. Students will engage their bodies in moving large, into the ground, and using the floor
