Bethel Dance Ministry
When & Where
Our mission is to raise up modern day Levites and dance revivalists who minister to God and to people with excellence and anointing.
Our heart is to raise up and train worshipers and dance revivalists who operate with excellence and anointing in ministering to God and to people as we release the Kingdom of Heaven through dance. We focus on equipping dancers to partner with God and with each other as we grow in both bearing the fruit of the Spirit and in operating in the gifts of the Spirit. We are a diverse, Holy Spirit filled community, teaching the dancers to move from the place of knowing their identity in Christ. We encourage each dancer to grow in their individual creative expression and movement language, as they build their personal dance history with the Lord. We also train the dancers to minister together as modern day Levites, experiencing and learning the power of the unity of the Spirit while ministering with each other and expressing God’s heart through movement in corporate settings.
We offer dance classes within an environment where students “feel safe”—a phase that we often hear repeatedly. For schedule, class description and tuition information, visit the Bethel Dance Classes page In person classes are not being held at this time.
We offer an apprenticeship program for those who want to join our dance teams. Email for more info on applications, interviews, and auditions for dance teams in our Healing Rooms and our local church services at firstname.lastname@example.org.
