Paradosi Ballet Company is a full-time touring ballet company that utilizes dance as a ministry tool for evangelism and worship in the United States and abroad. The ministry is the Pacific Northwest's first professional Christian Ballet Company that was founded in 2007 by Joel and Tennille Carver with the purpose of sharing the love of Jesus Christ through dance, drama, and personal witness. Paradosi has been blessed to partner with hundreds of ministries throughout the US and Internationally sharing the good news of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ through the arts!
The dancers all have a passion for the Lord and instead of entering the entertainment world, they chose to use their gifts and talents to lead His people in worship and to be used in evangelistic events to draw people to Him. The members of the ministry do not want to be seen as entertainers but rather as worship leaders ushering in the presence of the Lord and encouraging people to seek a personal relationship with Him!
Paradosi currently dances in a wide variety of venues such as churches, conferences, theaters, fairs, festivals, schools, shelters, rehabilitation centers, nursing homes, and even on street corners. While the ministries primary focus is on the West Coast of the United States the company has toured extensively across the United States and throughout Europe proclaiming the name of Jesus to the world.
