Paradosi Ballet Company is a touring ballet company that utilizes dance as a ministry tool for evangelism and worship. The ministry is the Pacific Northwest's first professional Christian Ballet Company that was founded in 2007 by Joel and Tennille Carver with the goal of sharing the love of Jesus Christ through dance, drama, and personal witness. While the ministries primary focus is on the West Coast of the United States, the company has toured extensively across the United States and Europe proclaiming the name of Jesus to the world!
The dancers in the ministry are all full-time volunteers who have a passion for the Lord and making Him known. Instead of entering the entertainment world, these women have chosen to use their gifts to glorify the Lord and draw people to Him. The members of the ministry do not want to be seen as entertainers but rather as worship leaders and evangelists proclaiming the name of Jesus to the world!
Paradosi currently dances at a wide variety of venues such as churches, conferences, theaters, fairs, festivals, fundraisers, schools, shelters, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and even on street corners.
