We exist to glorify God by loving our community through proclaiming the Word of God.

SMCC Ballet Academy

SMCC is excited to announce our Ballet Academy! Classes began on August 29, and are taught by our own Jessica Nicholson, of the Alabama Ballet. The SMCC Ballet Academy is a Christ-centered studio offering high quality training in classical ballet and contemporary dance. Ballet is a beautiful art form that can be used to give glory back to Christ just as we pray, sing, and fellowship. We believe it can be used as an expression of the gifts God has given to individuals. Our values and standards are set in place to create a positive and trusted environment, where students can learn and thrive in their love for dance. Here at the SMCC Ballet Academy, your child will grow in more ways than one. From prayer and mentorship in the classroom, to choreography set to Christian worship music, to outreach performance opportunities in the community! All of course paired alongside excellent training. There are three levels of classes available:

  • Level 1:  One ballet class per week for ages 5-7 ($50 monthly tuition)
  • Level 2:  Two ballet/creative movement classes per week for ages 8-11 ($100 monthly tuition)
  • Level 3:  Two ballet technique classes and one contemporary/worship class per week for ages 12 & up ($150 monthly tuition)

*Please note that if student’s dance experience meets a certain standard, they can move up to a higher class despite their age.

There is a $40 registration fee for each student; a leotard is included as part of your registration fee.  Please see the sizing chart below.
