This is a program that will train performing artists from the inside out. Training will consist of daily dance and technique classes where students will enhance their dance skill in all variations of dance while learning to evangelize and worship through the art of movement using diverse art forms, character development and biblical application. As a part of the program, participants in ING will work "hands-on" in the ministry of Dance Revolution as well as other ministry efforts.
The Training Program and Dance Company will be comprised of multiple styles of dance including Ballet, Modern, Contemporary, Jazz, Hip Hop, and Theater. Strength and conditioning classes such as pilates will be integrated in ING training along with various Boot Camp days to accelerate dancers' stamina and endurance.
Classes are in session Monday - Friday, with some Fridays booked for ministry opportunities and outreaches. Biblical Application Class will be held once a week (Biblical Application Class is the time devoted to the study of Biblical Principles and to gain the tools for artistic talents in ministry) and corporate worship will gather twice a week.
Performance and other "hands-on" training opportunities will include but are not limited to Dance Revolution National Tour, Earthshakers - The Competition, various conferences and industrials, holiday and outreach performances, community/street outreach, dance festivals, mission trips and more.
