So many of you prayed for the Holy Visitation Dance conference I hosted last week in Oregon. He answered those prayers and many others, granting us an amazing time of worship, of learning, of healing, and of building relationships.
Read on to hear what we asked of the Lord and how He generously responded as well as to see a 4 minute recap of the conference.
This is the DVD for which everyone has been asking. If you’ve always wanted choreography ideas, dance patterns to put with any music or dances to follow and learn, this is the DVD you need!
The Praise, Worship and Flags DVD contains four already choreographed dances for a group or a solo dancer with easy to follow instructions. Three of the four dances could be done with any 4-4 timed music. The first are praise dance steps and the last two are flag combinations. The second dance is a very expressive dance combined with ballet set to a Will Bozeman song.
To learn more about the DVD and watch a 5 minute teaching from the DVD with choreography you can use, read on. Continue reading “Choreographed Dances You Can Use”

Have you ever seen those beautiful billow cloths and wondered how to use them?
Do you want some creative ideas for their use?
Would you like to learn the mechanics of using them in a step by step fashion?
The Billow Cloths DVD by Lynn Hayden of Dancing for Him ministries will teach you all of these things.
I have used the teaching from this video in dance workshops, in ministry presentations, and in classes I teach to children. Billow cloths add so much in each environment. The beauty of the moving fabric, the sound of the cloth moving the air, and even the feel of the moving air all work together to create a worship experience full of power and wonder.
Watch this 5 minute tutorial I teach a segment from the DVD with a partner and with a child and also give you a glimpse into how we used the billows in a powerful way in our ministry dance.
From now until July 7, I’ve lowered the price by $10 and I’m setting all the profits aside for a scholarship fund for the Holy Visitation Dance Conference in Sherwood.
I want to give you an incentive to purchase it now, and I want to raise money for several dancers who want to attend this conference and need the Lord to provide the funds. You can help me be part of answering their prayer.
