This summer Delta will be home to one of the summer dance camp tour locations put on by Praise His Name! Worship Dance Ministry. This dance ministry is excited to be hosting a five-day worship-filled dance camp June 13-16 at Delta First Baptist Church. Experience a week of music, worship, dance, spiritual growth, flags and banners and fun for the whole community.
The theme for this year's camp is "No Fear! Break free from the bondage of fear in our lives and abide in the Father's perfect love!"
Praise His Name! Dance, currently based out of Jackson, Miss., has teachers and company members coming from all over the U.S. to offer this summer camp. Everyone ages 4 to adult is welcome. No prior dance experience is necessary. Students, grouped by age and experience, will have a daily core class that includes a devotional time, warm-up, free dance and time to learn a choreographed worship dance. A variety of workshops will be offered during the week including ballet, modern, Hebraic, interpretive, flags and banners, drama, purity, missions outreach and creative worship.
As part of the mission's outreach workshop, students will have the opportunity to help support a Colorado-based mission ministry that provides aid to the persecuted Christians in the Middle East. Camp participants will also have the opportunity to minister to the residents of Willow Tree Care Center, a senior living community in Delta, by presenting the dances on Wednesday, June 15. A community finale presentation will be held Thursday, June 16, at 7 p.m. at Delta First Baptist Church. The community is welcome and encouraged to attend. Praise His Name! wants to inspire children, youth and adults in the area to join in on exalting the Lord through the art of dance at this exciting summer dance camp. More details and registration are available online at www.PraiseHisNameDance.com or by calling Kristie Martin, co-director, at 970-589-5804.
