Praise is an opportunity to strengthen the dancer's personal relationships with God and friends, and to reach out to the world around us. 

Venues for Praise engagements include churches, nursing homes, and community centers.

The intention of Praise is to act in ministry.

Praise dancers have had the honor of ministering at a variety of local churches in worship services and special performances including The Thorn which has toured nationally and aired internationally on Daystar Television to millions of viewers.

  • Meetings/rehearsals will include 15-minute Bible Study and Prayer time.

  • Must commit to outreach performance opportunities.

  • Dancers will learn how to present their faith one on one or to a group.

  • Levels are sometimes mixed in the casting of the different repertoire. It is our desire and goal to artistically challenge each company member. Every dancer needs to learn to be a corps member (“team player”) in a dance company. There are few principal and soloist roles, and these are assigned to the dancers who are best suited for them according to many criteria at the time of casting. Each company member will have multiple pieces of choreography to work on this season and possibly one or more to understudy.
