Classes

Rez Dance classes are offered at a low cost to Rez Members and non-Rez members as we operate from donations and our yearly, one-time fees. It is our goal to offer low-costing quality dance instruction to anyone who wishes to dance. Our classes are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis and returning students and Rez Members receive priority registration. Your student will learn excellent technique, how to use his or her unique talents to freely glorify God, as well as being spiritually fed through our weekly devotional and prayer time.

Class Placement

Placement for students is dependent on each individual. We consider each student’s prior dance experience, technical level, age, attitude, etc. A student may stay in a class for two years or more depending on his or her progress. It is very important for each student to gain a solid foundation in his or her current level before continuing onward.

Please email our director, Dana at dforbes@rez.org if you have a new student for placement recommendation, or if you have any questions.
