All breakout sessions will be taught at the same time and then everyone rotates to the next instructor until everyone has had an
opportunity to learn from all the instructors.

The General Sessions will focus on choreography, Biblical foundations, Movement exercises, health & nutrition, physical worm ups
& stretching techniques, a time to worship, choreography “Do’s & Don’ts”, storytelling through movement, garment ideas, group
exercises on acting, stage presence, projecting & engaging the audience. We will also have a Q&A and panel discussion with all
the instructors. These sessions are very interactive with the audience.

In the breakout sessions you will experience each instructor as they help develop you in technique training, choreography drills,
stage presence, body awareness exercises and much more.

Our goal is to impart creative thinking, choreography insight, and to ignite and stir up the gift within each participant. We hope that
God will open your heart for a deeper passion and higher level of excellence to preach the gospel through dance and movement!

***Saturday we will end with a concert in the Theater, You will be demonstrating a dance piece you have learned with the instructor
of your choice.***(IF TIME PERMITS)
