What makes us unique

Safeguarding Dignity - Our choices throughout each level will be made in order to safeguard the dignity and value of students and our team. No need to worry about your toddler or your teen prancing around in next to nothing.  We begin as we mean to go in protecting each child's innocence. 

 

Servant Leadership - Students are propelled towards excellence through example not just words. Teachers are encouraging, uplifting and excellent examples to students inside and out of class. 

 

Seamless Experience - Students are given a seamless education with teacher’s trained to make each transition from level to level graceful and effortless.  It truly is a team effort around here!

Sharing the Gospel - We strive to share the gospel through actions and tone. This means that our peace, love and  encouragement stem from and lead students towards the love of God. 

 

Showing Value - We show each individual that they are valued and important. This is done throughout class, in our organization and communications styles and  through many special ways we surprise and connect with  students throughout the year.

We Believe

We believe in honoring each student's unique gifts, strengths, and artistic expression through wholesome education.

Our studio is a place where every member of the family can feel comfortable.

We believe in excellence in education and cultivate that through our international curriculum from

the Royal Academy of Dance, AcrobaticArts, Progressing Ballet Technique, and Alixa Flexibility. 

We believe that dance is a gift from God, and we, in return, share the good news of the Gospel through the splendor of dance. 

We believe in community, and for the last 20 years, Grace has been serving families in Iowa.

We believe 

  • in ONE GOD, eternally existent in three persons (Father, Son, and Holy Spirit) through whom the world was created in six literal days. 

  • JESUS CHRIST was fully God and fully man, born of a virgin, lived a sinless life, died as a payment for our sins, and rose again after three days. 

  • SALVATION is by grace alone. No works can save you and each individual must choose this free gift for themselves. 

  • ALL HUMAN LIFE is sacred and created by God, created in His image.  No one person is more valuable than another regardless of race, culture, social standing, born or unborn. This value begins at conception.

  • TWO DISTINCT sexes were created, male and female.  These two genders wonderfully reflect the image and nature of God. 

  • THE BIBLE is the inspired word of God, and any unmentioned beliefs would be based upon the Word of God.
