One of my favorite Christmas memories was when my pastor ended his message with "Christmas can be every day when we ask Christ to be born in our hearts anew every morning!"
Dance 4 Joy continues to be blessed with opportunities
to bring the GIFT of dance to ALL.
We hope you enjoy the GIFTS for you below
All dancers are invited to learn this GIFT...." WHO BUT JESUS", choreographed/taught by Miss Ruth and demonstrated by Christy & Jessie.
Learn it with this video at home and then you will be ready to minister the Love of Christ when God opens the next door of opportunity in your life:
So good to share the GIFT of dance OUTSIDE for the elderly at St John Manor in Costa Mesa.
Here are some pictures for you to enjoy! Also please click the link below to see a video of the great time everyone had! So many wonderful comments by the residents of St John. "Made me cry tears of joy", "Everyone shows so much feeling, it's beautiful" and "I loved all of it"! They definitely want D4J to return at Christmas!
I am EXCITED to announce that Susi Beck-Gifford has accepted the call to be the NEW Artistic Director of Dance 4 Joy Ministries. As most of you know, I have been acting as Artistic Director and Executive Director for the last 13 yrs, and with the ministry growing that is just too much work for one person. Susi is MORE than qualified for the position and through her immense artistic skills and LOVE for the mission of D4J, she will be a DYNAMIC and VISIONARY leader in the artistry of proclaiming the Gospel in dance with the faculty and with the students. Thank you Susi for jumping in the boat in this new way and leading us closer to Jesus as we all follow HIM!
