History of Into the Light Ballet
     Into the Light Ballet is excited to bring a Christian dance school to the community of Henry Co. We believe in keeping a positive and up lifting environment for our dancers and parents. Into the Light Ballet's goal is to train dancers with the discipline of classical ballet, while encouraging them to become more like Christ. We show them how to express their love to God and glorify Him through the different styles of dance. We want to help dancers shine the light of God throughout our community. Into the Light Ballet has two parts: the school which is called 'Into the Light Ballet' and the company which is 'Into the Light Ballet, Inc.' Dancers begin at the age of two with the school and continue all the way through their senior year of high school. The school also has open adult classes. Once the dancer is in high school and has achieved a qualifying level of technical ability, they will have the option of auditioning for the Company's trainee program. The Trainee program is located at the school, though it is more intense training than the school classes. This is a pre-professional training and dancers from all schools of dance are welcome to audition. The company is open to perform in churchs, women's conferences, special events, weddings, and so on.
