Why Liturgical Dance Might Be the Right Fit for You

Maybe you love to dance.  Maybe you have never taken a dance class but just like to move to the music.  Maybe you’ve been looking for a new way to express praise to God.  Maybe you’ve been looking for a way to get more involved in worship at Zion but don’t have time in your schedule for a huge commitment.  


If any of these statements apply to you then you might want to consider joining the Liturgical Dancers.  Men, women, boys, and girls of all ages are invited to join the Liturgical Dancers at any time.  Dance experience is NOT required although knowing   left from right is helpful.  The group typically participates in holiday services such as Christmas Eve and Easter, as well as roughly one worship service each month during the school year.  There is typically one hour-long practice held before each dance “performance”.  If there’s a service you can’t participate in that’s no problem, you can join us for the next one.    


If you are interested in joining the Liturgical Dancers, just want to try it out, want more information, or have any questions please contact Anna Beth Fowler at abfowler2008@gmail.com.
