Dance Academy
Ignite Dance Academy at River City Christian was born out of a desire to encourage children and adults to enjoy the art of dance and develop their gifts in this area. We believe that God created dance as a form of expression for us and we desire to encourage and develop the dancer in each student. We are dedicated to maintaining high standards of technical performance in a wholesome environment while making classes fun. Whether or not a student chooses to continue to dance, we believe that the benefits can enrich their whole life.
