Does Your Dance Have A Purpose?

In other words, what is the mission of your dance? What's the point? "But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, God’s special possession, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light." - 1 Peter 2:9  This is our mission and our purpose! "...so that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness." That's it! That's your purpose as a dancer. It can take lots of different shapes, but the calling is still the same. Whether you are in a company, at a church, working another job, or teaching classes, you ..read more

Armed with Truth: Winning the War with Your Body.

“I’m tired of warring against myself and the wonderful body I’ve been given.” ”Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me! They speak against you with malicious intent; your enemies take your name in vain. Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you? I hate them with complete hatred; I count them my enemies.” - Psalm 139:19-22 (ESV) I never understood this section of Psalm 139. The chapter was flowing smoothly until David jumped into this violent outburst. Since I didn’t get it, I tended to ignore it.  Until ..read more

Star-bound Celebrity or Servant-Celebrant Artist?

“And the day came when I dared to ask Him what He desired from the gift He gave me of dancing.”  I’ve been active in the vocational calling of dance for over four decades. During these many years of counting to eight, pointing and flexing, bending and rising, jumping and falling; I’ve experienced the full range of the sweet, yet also the bitter, the beautiful and the broken, and the ecstasy and the endangerments of the multi-characteristics of this ever shifting art form of dance. I have looked at the cloud of dance from many sides now, serving this craft as dancer, teacher, choreographer ..read more

Can Yoga Really Be Holy?

“Why does the enemy get to claim all of these good things and prevent the body of Christ from experiencing the vital benefits that accompany the practice of yoga?” “Slow...” “Slower...” “Slow down, love.” God has slowed me way, way down. It has taken years. And it’s been an unwinding of the miraculous kind.  I couldn’t have asked for, planned, or imagined it happening this way. As for how fast I was moving through life, I was clueless. An object in motion stays in motion, right?  By age 13, you could have easily put me in the ‘busyness addict’ category.  And then one day, like t ..read more

Pursuing an integrated dance & faith life.
Being Salt Blog
by Marlita Hill

“In my work, I often ask artists a simple question: How much more can a creator be glorified than when the thing they created does what it was created to do?” As career-focused dancers in Christ, it can be a struggle seeing our faith and dance careers as part of the same experience. Sometimes it feels like they exist in different galaxies. Or like they're going in different directions. Or that we have to make a choice between the two of them. Or that we have to do really hard, focused work to bring them together.  But none of that is actually true. It was God who invited you to relationsh ..read more

What is Prophetic Dance?
Being Salt Blog
by Saara Taina
1y ago
“Someone once asked me a question: “What is the difference between trained dancers and prophetic dancers?”” First of all I want to break down the misconception that prophetic dance equals spontaneous (non-choreographed) dance.  Prophecy is primarily about hearing the heartbeat of God and expressing it. Being in tune with the Holy Spirit as He shows us the heart of the Father and teaches us to communicate it to others. In the same way as we can ‘interpret’ the heart of God with our words, we can do the same with movements. When people do random improvised dance without any connection ..read more

Caught Up.

“This is a call to guarding our heart like never before, ‘for from it flows the issues of life.’ Your art flows from your heart.” I can’t seem to change the subject with God.  I am constantly considering this odd, present moment in history. We’re living in one of the most delicate and perplexing eras. Since the moment the doorway to the infinite-realm-of-possibility dropped into our back pockets, also known as the iPhone, we have been caught up.  It was a slow evolution, one feature added at a time, nothing too invasive. First, text messaging, a much quicker option than calling. Then ..read more

Say yes to your season.
Being Salt Blog
by Tehillah Hartmann
1y ago
“Recognize that the season in front of you is not inherently good or bad, it just requires something very specific from you. ” You know the feeling, right? Working late. Brainstorming ideas as you drive. Jotting down notes on your lunch break. Trying to squeeze everything out of this process to reveal something worthwhile. This was my intense creative process as I carefully crafted a solo for a local dance festival. I was excited. And I was drained. It was in this blurry-eyed, brain-fried, body-tired space that I started complaining to my husband. I was grateful for the opportunity, but I hate ..read more
