SDG Christian Dance Fellowship
The SDG Dance Fellowship exists to create a community of dancers whose mission is to build each other up in their faith, as they pursue dance for the purpose of worshipping God and to proclaim the message of Jesus to the world through touring and performances.
What We Do:
At the heart of our fellowship are outreach and ministry. We take our productions to churches, schools, retirement homes, hospitals, and sometimes even malls and street festivals. At any venue that is open to receive us, we will be faithful to the Lord and present the gospel message of Jesus.
Our bi-weekly meetings will include short devotionals that are scripture-based and prayer time that will set the foundation of our faith. Then a short ballet class will take place as a warm-up. The rest of the time will be dedicated to learning and rehearsing the choreography that will be used for our performances. Props and costumes are used to aid in storytelling, communicate our message, and make our productions more engaging. Students will learn about stage managing, touring as a team, what goes on behind the scenes, and all of the things that are necessary for a stellar performance!
To join, dancers must faithfully attend every single rehearsal and performance during the period of time that has been set. Currently, students from the level of Beginners 3 and up are encouraged to audition. We also welcome dancers from other dance studios! You don’t have to attend SDG! You must, however, be familiar with our statement of faith and agree to the doctrines outlined therein to join, as well as schedule an audition with us beforehand.
Fellowship is a group of dancers with different dance levels and skills. It has a different purpose and goal than a regular ballet class. In making the production, we cannot guarantee the equal distribution of parts to each dancer. Dancers may not participate in all production pieces, but instead, they might be understudies. The level of participation and choreography will be decided by the teacher and the leaders at SDG.
