Dance at Messiah College

Do you want to communicate to those around you and express worship to God through dance? Do you want to hone your technical skills and learn new performance and choreography techniques?

At Messiah College, dance is much more than movement, rhythm and fitness; it's a creative form of worship. You'll participate in dance as a significant form of human expression and communication. You'll come to better know and understand the world through dance while serving God and others.

You'll dance in classes taught by experienced professional dancers who have studied and performed at venues such as Central Pennsylvania Youth Ballet, University of Utah, University of Arizona's School of Dance and Lancaster, Pa.'s Sight and Sound Theatre. What you learn in your dance classes can then be put into practice in the College’s theatre productions and numerous dance ministry groups – Acclamation, Da Blazin’ Footprints, God’s Kingdom Steppers or Spirit Force.

Your classes and performance experiences will prepare you to express yourself in dance performance, attend graduate school, pursue a career in choreography or dance instruction or worship God through a career in dance ministry.
