About Us

Christian Dance Center teaches classical ballet, ages 3 through adult, at Hintze Dance Center in Cypress, Texas. Classes are for preschoolers, homeschoolers, and adults who are able to attend midday classes. We also offer a modern dance class for beginners. We use classical, christian, and instrumental music in our classes and performances.

Dawn GilmerĀ is the owner of Christian Dance Center and both consults and substitute teaches. She holds a degree in dance and kinesiology. Dawn also leads His Company International, a nonprofit dance company that ministers around the world.

Kim Gilmer teaches all of our advanced ballet classes. Kim has trained extensively in Sonshine Christian Ballet, and has completed the Vagonova Ballet Teachers’ Course. She has also trained at The Met and taken a Paul Taylor Intensive.

Heather Lucas has been taking classes at Christian Dance Center for five years. She is a dedicated student and a homeschool mom with a heart for teaching. Her desire to dance compelled her to enroll in ballet classes with her daughters. She still takes ballet, furthering her training, in order to be better equipped to teach the next generation. Heather handles administrative work for Christian Dance Center and also teaches Preschool and Primary ballet classes.
