Christian Sacred Dance


Getting Started in Sacred Dance

Your first point of contact should be your local church. Ask the Praise and Worship leader about seminars, workshops or training that he or she may be aware of, or that your church is participating in. Another option would be to call local churches in your area to see if they have Dance Ministries, and if they hold seminars or workshops.  Churches with Active Dance Ministries
