David Kiyak

Dance and Ballet in particular has been an integral part of my life since I can remember. My biggest passion as a teacher is to be able to in still a high level of technique and artistry, whilst creating a safe environment that values the health and well being of the whole artist.

Originally from Alabama; my dancing journey began at the age of five where I trained locally until the age of thirteen. I spent the following five years in pre-professional training. I took my first professional job at eighteen as a dancer with The Alabama Ballet and became their principal artist at nineteen. At twenty years of age, I took a new position with The Orlando Ballet and became their principal artist. During my professional career, some of my highlights have been dancing in the Philippines as Romeo in "Romeo and Juliet", Prince Siegfried in "Swan Lake", and contemporary works by Twyla Tharp, Balanchine and Robert Hill. Among numerous other classical and contemporary performances, I had the pleasure of working as an artist with Cirque Du Soleil's "La Nouba" at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.

I feel so honored to have had a career full of so many opportunities and fulfilled dreams. My dance journey has been a gift, however, as any professional dancer knows, the professional industry is also filled with pain, challenges and heartache.The professional world and ballet in particular, hasn't always made the health of a dancer a priority and particularly as a straight Christian male, I often felt attacked for my personal values and convictions.

Because of this I have a desire to equip the next generation of Christian dancers with an understanding of their identity in Christ and an ability to honour their bodies by prioritizing their emotional and mental health.

After retiring from my professional career in 2016 I spent two years as a student at Bethel's School of Supernatural Ministry as well as dancing and teaching for Dance AdDeum on their European tour. During this time I was involved in Bethel's Healing Rooms dance team and Prophetic Dance Ministry.Through these experiences, I discovered that my professional dance training and ministry didn't have to be mutually exclusive from each other.

I long to see Christian Dancers occupying their sphere in the industry and shift the narrative of what professional and even non professional dance culture has been. We get to be the light in dark places and bring God's beauty into an art form that, at its core, was made to connect God to the hearts of His people.
