We are excited to welcome you back to another year of Riviera Worship Dance!  Classes begin for grades PreK (3year olds) – 3rd on Wednesday, September 4th and for our 4th – 8th graders on Monday, September 9th.  Our middle school class and devotion will be led by our teacher, Katie Brinson.  Miss Katie is a native to St. Petersburg and a member of First United Methodist Church where she also teaches dance at their preschool.  Additionally, Katie has a full load of dance classes she teaches at the YMCA.  Katie and her husband, Matt, have two elementary aged children, Bree and Chase.  We are blessed and excited to have Katie join our ministry!  

Miss Elle, Miss Gabby, and Miss Elli will continue to teach our PreK3 – Kindergarten and 1st – 3rd Grade classes and our beloved Miss Paula will lead these two classes in a combined devotion from 5:45 – 6:00pm weekly.  😊


*To all prior dancers who bring a “new to us” friend who registers for worship dance this season, we’re offering a 20% discount on your registration fee! 

We’re looking forward to seeing you very soon.

In Christ,
Ann Orchard and Amie Smoke
