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.

We invite you to attend the Ignite Dance Academy Annual Recital, a spectacular showcase of the talents of our dancers from age 3 to adult. The recital will take place on Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2 from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. in the Worship Center. Our dancers will perform a variety of styles, including ballet, tap, jazz, contemporary, and more. The best part? Admission is completely free, and no tickets are required. Don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to see our dancers in action!
