Paradosi's trainee program was established to equip the next generation of Christian dancers to grow as both artists and ministers of the Gospel.  Our goal is to equip dancers to either join Paradosi's Touring Company, to serve with other dance ministries, teach, or serve in other areas of ministry.  We want people to go to wherever God is calling them to serve and we want to help them achieve their goals as a dancer and in ministry. 

The Trainee Program is a two-year vocational program that will challenge dancers artistically, technically, and in their spiritual growth! The trainee program is designed for dancers ages 18 years or older who desire to glorify God and make Him known through the arts.  

Our trainee program is different than other trainee programs as it is a fully immersive dance and ministry experience with trainees learning and training along side the Company Artists and Apprentices in the ministry.  Classes are taught by the ministries Director's and faculty consisting of current and former dancers from the ministry.  

Each day dancers will participate in devotions, technique class, and rehearsals.  Throughout the week dancers may also take additional classes such as pointe, contemporary, Progressing Ballet Technique, as well as receiving dance teacher training. Dancers will also participate in Gospel focused ministry training from the directors of the ministry and through our cohort with Western Seminary leading to ministry certificates and experience in evangelism and prayer ministry. 


We want to equip everyone who joins the ministry with the skills that they need to become effective ministers of the Gospel!  During the season Trainees will learn Paradosi repertoire and be equipped with ministry tools.  While the dancers are learning in the studio, they will also be putting what they have learned into practice during outreach events throughout the season at churches, retirement centers, rehab facilities, shelters, schools, and other opportunities as they arise!

Trainees may also have opportunities to dance with the Company Artists and Apprentices of Paradosi at local programs and on tour.
