Liturgical Dance Workshops


“Let them praise God’s name in the festive dance! Ps. 149:3

The foundation of any liturgical dance ministry must first be rooted in a personal relationship with God. Spending time with God in daily prayer enables us to draw our inspiration for choreography from the Holy Spirit. We must give honor and glory to God through our dance. Reading the Bible, praying daily, and listening to prayerful music each day has helped me in my ministry to become closer to the Lord.

Everyone can do liturgical dance — from the very young to the elders of a congregation. Prior dance experience is helpful but not necessary. What is required is a heart-felt desire to worship God through movement. I offer workshops to those who want to learn the basics of liturgical dance. The following are some of the topics I cover:

Personal prayer life
Scriptural references to dance
Dancing with streamers and flags
Liturgical Seasons
Liturgically appropriate times to dance
Appropriate dance apparel
Choreography



Here are some observations made regarding my ministry:

“May 30th, 2004 Duke University Chapel Service. The service was very grand! We received many compliments on the streamers. Neither the pictures or video adequately reflect how fabulous it all looked that day. At least two people told me it really looked like flames of fire as the youth stood at the front of the Chapel. Thank you again for your craftsmanship on these streamers!”
Blessings,

“You are so beautiful in your leadership of the dance ministry in our church. Thanks for giving of your time and talent in praising God and helping build community where ever you are.”

“You gave me a sense of excitement in knowing that it isn’t all about the actual movements of the dance, but that the dancing expresses the celebration of our faith and of Christ himself.”

"Your classes were so informative on Saturday, and I feel like I know so much more about liturgical dance. So many people now expressed how much they enjoyed you [and your group]. If we do this again we would definitely like for [you] to come again."
