Dance

The Dance Ministry is an auxiliary of the Sunday School Department. The ministry enhances the spoken word through spiritual, gospel and musical expression and movement interpretation. The movement and steps convey a message which unfolds a spiritual experience and creates a feeling which stirs the soul. The youth dancers, led by a dance director and an assistant director, are ages 7 through 21 (with special consideration for younger participants). The adult dancers, led by a dance director, are ages 21 and older. Performances may include both youth and adult dancers.  Dance rehearsals occur regularly as performances are planned for special occasions, church events, and community activities. Youth dancers may also perform at youth congress and other youth designated events. Transportation to dance rehearsal is the responsibility of the dancer or the parent and/or guardian of the dancer. A spiritual commitment to discipline and teamwork are essential to ensuring that the dance ministry is successful.
