Welcome Letter

All classes are a part of First Friends Sports & Recreation Ministry. The Arts Academy 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).

The Sports and Rec Ministry of FFC gives the whole family opportunities for health, fitness, friendship, fun, competition, venue for outreach, and spiritual development in an inviting, Christ-centered atmosphere. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, working for the Lord, not for human masters.” Colossians 3:23

Tap dance is a form of dance characterized by using the sound of one’s tap shoes hitting the floor as a percussive instrument. As such, it is also commonly considered to be a form of music. First Friends Dance teachers will give your child a combination of tap styles in a loving and safe atmosphere. Inspirational music and devotions will be shared in each class.
