“Annointed” and “Annointed Too” Praise Dance Open House
We invite anyone interested in learning more about praising the Lord through dance to come see what our “Annointed” and “Annointed Too” groups are all about.
Saturday, September 27, 2014 12:30 pm-1:30pm
Annointed Dance is a ministry developing and using dance skills to praise the Lord and connect to others. Songs are interpreted through movement and faith as uplifting dance is shared in community outreach.
Those who have a desire to praise the Lord through movement in a fellowship of Christian believers are welcome to join this spiritual performance group. In addition to developing skills in Praise and Liturgical dance classes, participants in these groups are committed to rehearsing, learning choreography and doing presentations in various venues including but not limited to community functions, churches and nursing homes. Members experience the joy of interpreting uplifting songs and sharing their talents and faith through community outreach in the name of Jesus Christ.
- Annointed Too: ages 8-18
Annointed Too is the youth dance ministry that praises God through movement and music interpretation. Formerly a part of the Diane Matthews School of Dance Arts (for 8 years), the ministry was recently added as a West Chester Dance Works group in 2012. The ministry is open to anyone between the ages of 8 and 18 with the desire to praise the Lord through dance. Led by three Christian youth under the direction of Diane Matthews, the group develops choreography, rehearses, and performs together in unity. Within this ministry, there are opportunities to develop and apply class leadership as well. A typical season lasts from September to June, in which there are many outreach performance opportunities in various venues, including churches, community fairs, and nursing homes.
Rehearsals for both Annointed (adults) and Annointed Too are held every Saturday from 12:30pm – 1:30pm. This time is used to work on technique, dance expressions, and becoming closer to God using words and our movement. both Annointed and Annointed Too are positive, uplifting groups that are encouraging inside and outside of class. Although it is enjoyable, it is a commitment from September through June where participants are expected to attend regularly due to the progression of material learned and possible upcoming performances. Rehearsals begin Saturday, October 7th.
