Paradosi is first and foremost a ministry. As a ministry, one of our core values is to focus on ministry first, dance second. We carry this value forward into our Summer Dance Intensives in our interactions with each student. While we want to challenge students in their dancing and to help them to grow as artists, we also want their hearts to be opened to Jesus. It is our hope that each student will come away with a deeper understanding of God's love for them and a renewed and strengthened relationship with Jesus.
Christ is at the center of all that we do! Each morning starts out with chapel where students share in a time of worship, prayer, and hear a message or testimony from a member of Paradosi Ballet or one of our amazing guest speakers.
Every evening each students also participates in a small group Bible study with 5 to 10 other students. During this time students often open up more and free to ask questions, discuss more, and learn with other students their own age. Often very deep and sweet friendships develop from these groups and carry on long after the intensive end.
As an inter-denominational ministry our dancers all set aside their theological differences and come together to share the love of Jesus and His message of hope. Our dancers have all been trained in altar ministry, evangelism, and each has an immense heart for others and making Christ known. Each member of the ministry is prepared and ready to offer prayer and support to the participants at any time.
