Meet the Teacher
Daniela Sanchez-Elliott studied classical ballet for 12 years in Mexico, Cuba and Spain. Through her training, and later in her career as a professional ballerina she performed in classical works such as The Nutcracker, Gisselle, Swan Lake, Don Quijote and Copelia, among others.
The focus of these classes are to:
1. Develop solid classical ballet fundamentals, such as strength, flexibility and positioning.
2. Worship God through the art of dance and movement.
3. Awaken imagination and creativity while having fun.
4. Foster a community of love, support, and encouragement.
Mrs. Daniela would love the opportunity to teach your children to love dance as much as she does!
Here's what some of our students and their parents are saying about Steps of Faith:
I love this dance school. I always feel welcomed by everyone, I feel like I can be myself. Mrs. Elliott is so good at teaching me everything I need to know. She is amazing, I don't know how she does it all. I highly recommend Steps of Faith.
- Esther, student
Through Steps of Faith I discovered a new way to praise the Lord. Dancing is beautiful and fun, and lets you forget the problems of the world for 2 hours. Thank you Mrs. Elliott for this amazing opportunity!
- Julia, student
I think Steps of Faith shows students to dance with passion but also to praise God in dancing and everything we do. Thank you Mrs. Elliott for showing all of us to never give up and to always dance to the Lord with all your heart.

My 12 year old and 5 year old absolutely adore Mrs. Elliott! Neither girl had any previous dance experience but Mrs. Elliott melted all their apprehensions away with her love of Jesus, beautiful dancing ability and genuine care. Both of my girls had some physical issues that have been alleviated through strengthening exercises and dance practice. We feel so very blessed to have discovered this class and praise the Lord alongside our girls through this form of worship.
I love the life in this group of dancers and the love of God that is so evident here. Daniela truely cares for the girls and it shows. Positive correction in love is amazing and great for the girls. I can't recommend it enough!
This has been a great experience for my granddaughter. she loves her teacher, has made many little friends, and it has peaked her listening skills. She looks forward to coming all the way from Essex every week.
