The heart of the School of Dance Ministries (SDM) is to use dance as a tool to bring healing and the Gospel to all types of people in all places, while helping students learn, experience and explore how dance can be used in ministry.
This course is designed for dancers who are eager and passionate about communicating the gospel through dance in all types of ministry settings. During the school, dancers will spend time training, preparing, and pursuing God’s heart both in the classroom and the studio. Classroom topics could include Identity, Dance Therapy, Ministry Planning, and Discipling the Dancer. In the studio, dancers will get a chance to train in various styles including modern, jazz and ballet, while also learning about topics such as pedagogy, composition and anatomy.
Our goal is to have students learn how to use dance as a means to bring the hope and healing power of God’s redeeming love to a world longing for Him.
SDM is 5-6 months long – 12 weeks of lecture phase in Montana and 8-12 weeks of outreach.
