Building Community Through Dance
Dance 4 Joy is a place to find connections to our community and to our King. Through dance classes, outreaches, conferences, and master classes, the youth at D4J are given amazing opportunities to make friends with different cultures, doctrines, and economic backgrounds. Dance becomes the language that connects and binds us all together.
We depend on the generosity of individual donors, businesses, foundations, and grants to help fund our programs and provide scholarships for dancers in need. Your contribution enables us to do our work with the community we serve and we truly appreciate it. Please consider becoming a sustaining, monthly member to help ensure that future generations of students will continue to dance for JOY.
“D4J is not only an amazing dance ministry, but it is a nurturing and encouraging community of friends who love Jesus, and love dance! The instruction is excellent, and my daughter has learned so much! We have developed wonderful friendships, and we love our D4J family!”Michelle G.
“My 6 andMartina R.
8 year olddancers LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the teachers and classes they take at Dance 4 Joy. Ballet, tap, hip-hop, and jazz. I love that they dance to kid-safe music, wear garments that are conservative, cute and modest, and are challenged, encouraged, and really cared for by the talented instructors. The dance teachers are excellent with professional backgrounds; they create amazing choreography that is complex and encourages my dancers to really excel without a hint of competition. The teacher’s style is totally positive, completely uplifting each dancer, and including kids of all skills and abilities. It’s the best after-school activity! Dance 4 Joy gives my daughters a chance to flex their creative, physical, social and mental muscles, and they look forward to every class! And for me, as a mom, I’ve met the kindest moms while waiting for the girls’ class, I look forward to seeing them every week!”

A note from last year…
Just felt a leading from Our Lord to share good new!
As we continue the journey towards opening the studio, daily we find “surprising” work to be done. I smile…because the obstacles are no surprise at all to Our Awesome God, who brings us new ways each day to grow in holiness, grace, understanding, compassion, integrity, and joy.
I am celebrating every obstacle…because they are just another way to submit to the Lord every breath, every word, every thought, every action, and revel in HIM…the One who makes ALL THINGS NEW.
It is so AWESOME that in our need to build a support team of financial partners…I have now multiplied abundantly the people I share the Gospel with.
It is so AWESOME that in our need to build new classes…we are now multiplying over and over and over the communities of people we will share the Gospel with.
It is so AWESOME that in meeting people in all the areas of building, permits, codes, city planning, county planning, businesses, we have an opportunity to be the Light of Christ in abundantly new areas…to see people in the world, acting from the world’s rules, and to SHIFT them into GRACE…into LIGHT…into REST…into GOODNESS…into HOPE.
What more could we ask for? We are serving the KING of KINGS and HE is doing the work of bringing SOULS into the KINGDOM for ETERNITY!
So let us resoundingly pray with JOY, with THANKSGIVING, and with ELATION that GOD is being MAGNIFIED and He has called us to be His Disciples in a NEW WAY.
Our theme dance from the conference…BULLETPROOF…”We’ve got our armor now, no fear no doubt gonna shoot us down!” (Yep, this is the part of the post where you get up and dance!)
Yep, ARMOR on everyone! Ready to MOVE!!
THIS is the day the Lord has made…let us REJOICE and be GLAD! (Psalm 118:24)
Have a great day!
