Here at Worship Arts we have something for every age and skill level!

Worship Arts offers group classes in all the arts including art, dance, and music. Private lessons are also offered for voice and many different instruments. Our classes and lessons focus on teaching students fundamental skills, techniques and how to use creativity to glorify God. All classes are Christ centered, include a weekly devotional and use Christian music. Many Worship Arts classes will have the opportunity to participate in the weekend worship services at Celebration Church as well as outreach locations.

NOTE: All classes are broken down by age and skill level, (i.e., Elementary School, Middle School, High School, Adult) depending upon interest and availability of space.


Acro Dance

In acro dance, students will learn to execute acrobatic skills with precision and control and to implement them into a dance format. Students will be required to have a standing backbend but are not required to return to the standing position yet. This class will build students’ flexibility and strength not only in their muscles but in their walk with Christ.

Acting 101

Acting 101 is a beginner theatre class, where students will learn how to act, tell stories on stage, and play theatre games. They will focus on creating and performing Christ-centered skits at Celebration and in the community.

Art: Mixed Media

Mixed Media will teach students to see, enjoy and appreciate the beauty of our world and to use the artistic talents God has given them to glorify His name.  Students will learn drawing, painting, collage, paper sculpture, print making, weaving and ceramics.

Ballet

An interpretive, lyrical-based ballet is used to teach the art of worship while learning stretching, center work, across the floor exercises, and ballet technique. Beginning Ballet will introduce the fundamentals of ballet while emphasizing musicality, development of overall body strength, flexibility and body alignment. Intermediate Ballet is open to students with at least 1 year of experience and will expand on the fundamentals of ballet while also teaching basic leaps and turns. Advanced Ballet requires at least 2 years of experience and will teach standard leaps, turns and choreography that allows the dancer to express her love to God.


Beginning Praise Band

Come and join an actual worship band while learning the guitar, ukulele, electric bass and various percussion instruments. You will read chord charts and learn music theory. Students do not have to supply their own instruments but it would be helpful to have them in order to practice at home.

Boys Dance

Boys Dance will teach our young men to use their strength and creativity to worship their Father through movement tap, and tumbling. It is open to boys ages 4 through 7.

Contemporary Dance

Contemporary dance incorporates modern, jazz, lyrical, and classical ballet. A mixture of barre, floor work, turns, and leaps will work together to create worshipful dance. Some dance experience is required.

Hip Hop

The Hip Hop classes teach rhythm, coordination, musicality and choreography within a positive Christ-centered atmosphere. Dancers develop focus, strength, and agility while having fun and worshiping Jesus.

Interpretive Movement

In Interpretive Movement (IM), students will combine the art of sign language and motion to create a visual interpretation of the lyrics to a song. While this movement is similar to dance the focus will be on the dramatic interpretation of the lyrics. Students who take this class will learn how to put emotion and grace into this simple, but powerful form of movement. Although sign language is an important factor in this class, we do not require you to have any sign language experience. 

Outreach

Use your dance and dramatic gifts to tell our community about Jesus and the freedom we have found in Him.  This class is tuition-free.

Percussion

Students will be introduced to and develop the basic techniques of percussion playing and music reading. Get ready to beat, tap, and bang your way to fun using a drum kit, a cajon, and more.

Pre-Dance

These classes are a perfect place for little ones to begin learning how to worship Jesus through dance! Through instruction in ballet, tap, and tumbling, students will develop basic coordination, strength, balance, rhythm, flexibility, and basic dance skills.

Private Lessons

Lessons include music reading, music theory, and sight-reading. Lesson fees and times will be arranged privately with each instructor.

Sew and serve

In this sewing class, we will sew simple and useful items to donate and bless those in children’s hospitals, mission groups, nursing homes, cancer treatment centers, NICU, homeless shelters, military bases and more. All levels of experience are welcome.

Tap

Intermediate and advanced tap is open to all ages that have at least 3 years of tap experience.  Tap basics is a four-week crash course in tap technique for teens and adults interested in enrolling in intermediate tap.

All tumbling classes are taught by Debbie Neilson, who has been coaching for 38 years and is a national instructor and a nationally ranked judge for USA gymnastics.
