At Rhythms of Grace, our entire staff is committed to making sure each dancer is treasured, taught, and transformed.
When something of value is in your possession, you take every measure possible to care for it and protect it. Nothing could be more valuable than a child, and when parents trust us with their treasures, we view that as an honor and great responsibility. We want students and parents to see the studio as a safe haven for their families. As a staff, we also promise to do everything we can to make each child feel known, loved, and celebrated.
We are all gems of great value living in a world that will most certainly leave smudges. We all need polished. There are so many dance and performance concepts that can be learned alongside Biblical truths. Our staff will intentionally plan to teach techniques and choreography in such a way that scripture can reach the dancers' hearts. This results in dancers who are transformed... timid to confident; prideful to humble; unworthy to valued; alone to befriended.
After our treasure develop a sense of security and belonging, they are able to fully engage in learning. Our students should experience perpetual skill development as we align our teaching with a sequenced curriculum for each genre of dance. That learning is informally assessed on a continuous basis, and it is formally assessed each "Step Up" year of the Step Stone curriculum to ensure that students are developing a firm dance foundation
