Valor’s extensive dance program provides a place where students can experience the joy and community that Christ offers, while excelling in the area of dance they love most. In addition to daily classes offered for every level of dance experience, our program offers audition-based opportunities organized around two focuses: a performance-based Veritas Company and a competitive dance team.

Within these two areas of focus, dancers who are passionate about continuing dance in college or refining their art are encouraged to further develop their technique through The Valor Conservatory for the Arts.

Valor student testimonial - Caitlyn
My Valor Arts experience helped strengthen my abilities in dance, as well as confidence in myself and the Lord. This program has taught me how to use my art as a form of worship and ministry for the Lord no matter where I am in the world, for which I am forever grateful.
