All classes are a part of First Friends Sports & Recreation Ministry. The Sports and Recreation Ministry at First Friends (FFC) is rooted in our belief that all areas of life are sacred and everything we do must be under the Lordship of Christ (Col 3:17-23). We believe God is delighted when we pray but also when we play. He has created us with abilities and desires to play and compete and thus we "worship" Him in our activity (Romans 12:1). This Pre-Dance/Tap Combo class will be a combination of 30 minutes ballet instruction and 30 minutes tap dance instruction.
