Praise Dance Ensemble

"Let them praise His name with dancing."

Psalm 149:3

The ensemble is comprised of the dancers from CBS Praise Worship Dance classes who have a desire for outreach through dance at various venues within our community.

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.

Company members will learn more than one piece of choreography this season and may be chosen to understudy additional pieces.
