Dance Ministry Relentless Purpose
Purpose Dance serves as an avenue for those who desires to express their worship to God through the art and ministry of dance. We believe in training the physical body as well as the spiritual body to produce the totality of Excellence. We accept ages 4 – adults, male and female, all ethnicities, and all levels of dance from entry beginner level to professional level and from those who may be at the beginning of their personal relationship and walk with God to those who have developed a solid firm foundation in their relationship and walk with God.
Purpose is designed for the dancer that has a calling, serious passion, desire and focus to worship God through Dance. While we believe that everyone must have the correct heart’s posture, we also believe that you must require a skill level for dance ministry as well. No, you are not required to be at a professional level of dance. However, we do require that you do have at least a beginners’ intermediate level of dance with a good understanding and knowledge of movement.
There is an audition process for ages 15 – adults to be a member of Purpose. However, ages 4-14 yrs will be accepted with no audition, as ages 8 – 14 will be given an assessment to be placed within the correct dance level.
Weekly classes will be required to be a member of Purpose Dance. If you are at an advanced or professional level, you will not be required to attend classes, but will be asked to help with the classes. However, everyone will be expected to attend all Rehearsals.
Weekly Technique Classes –Technique classes are separate from rehearsals. Technique classes are designed for learning and how to properly execute the technique for each dance genre such as the differences between ballet and modern.
