Ever Be Ballet
Exams are a highlight to the year! They are a great tool to assist and motivate students towards their personal goals, and it is always a revitalizing experience. We encourage parents to bring camera and flowers - it is truly an achievement to be celebrated!
At this time, because of our small size, the exams are videoed in groups and sent to the examiner, and there is a waiting period to receive results. When we grow to having several levels taking exams, the examiner will travel and be present for the exam, and results will be given immediately.
Either way, the sense of accomplishment and the improvement in skill make this an exciting time of year for everyone.

The exercises build technique, strength, coordination, and musicality, but using the exercises and choreography as worship to God is the focus. As the dancers progress, they have the strength and tools to better express their worship to God.
The dance year begins the first week of September. Exams are held around March, and are the way students advance to the next level, beginning in the Primary Class. Finally, in May a recital "Celebration" is held for all levels to participate and express their worship for God, using all they have learned throughout the year.
Ever Be uses a ballet syllabus (Sonshine Christian Ballet Syllabus) in all levels, which provides both students and teachers with a proven teaching tool that gives defined goals for the students. Syllabi are traditionally used to teach ballet in England, Europe, Canada, Australia, & throughout the world.

He will Ever Be worthy of all praise and adoration, and this is why we dance.
“He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.” Psalm 40:3
I am a homeschooling mother of 2, who loves dance. As a teenager, I had the unique privilege of learning ballet technique at Sonshine Christian Ballet in Houston (now named Ballet Excelsior). It was a Christian ballet school whose mission was and is to worship God with excellence in technique and performance. After moving back to Colorado as a young adult, I continued dance and performance for several years at Ballet Nouveau, but acutely missed the expression of worshiping God through dance. It was not my passion to dance for the sake of dance or for the applause. So, I walked away from dance for 10+ years, until He laid a new vision on my heart in the summer of 2016. He nudged me to purchase the syllabus that I was originally trained under, and begin this new adventure.
