Then maidens will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13

Our dancers get a well-rounded dance education and foster an appreciation and awareness for the arts.  The CLHS Dance program was created for dancers of all levels: Dance 1, Dance 2, Dance 3, Dance Ensemble/Ministry (Advanced Dance), and Dance Company (Honors Advanced Dance). Please see school catalog for course descriptions.


Through the performing arts, we are given the chance to express God’s beauty to others. This ministry aims to be a light that shines for God, not our own personal glorification. In this posture of worship, we desire to actively participate in realizing God’s call for the CLHS Arts.
