PRAISE IN MOTION

Our dance ministry team, under the direction of Lisa Harris-Browning, has been active in offering outreach for community projects as well as various churches. This ministry is open to dancers ages 7 thru college. No dance experience is required. Monthly fee is $40-$45 and costumes are purchased once a year. Each week the team has devotions, prayer, dance instruction and discussions about missions they can serve. Mrs. Browning has a theology degree as well as many years of dance training. It is important for our dancers to know their ability to dance is a gift from God and they are to use it for His good. Activities include working with children from the United Methodist Children’s Home as well as local school students, helping bag food for Catholic Charities at Thanksgiving and offering ministry to various churches. This ministry has been the basis for ideals held by Lake City Dance Arts since its opening in 1995. Our hope for 2018-2019 is to expand to three teams. Praise in Motion is always looking for opportunities to offer ministry. Let us know if you are interested in having us dance for your church service or community event.

OUR 2018 CHARITY RECITAL SHOWCASE

Was presented on Friday, June 1st and benefited Friends of the Columbia County Public Library! Each year we choose a service not only to give financial support but also to bring awareness of the organization to our students, families and community. Our recital theme was “Dare to Dream” and what better way to promote big dreams than by READING! Libraries offer FREE services for kids and adults of all ages, doesn’t require batteries or tech equipment and expands the mind. The Adult Literacy Program teaches reading and second languages and always needs volunteers! Check out the summer programs offered for our children! Other programs are available year round. Joining “Friends of the Library” is a great way to offer your time and financial donations to help provide all of the services they have to offer. We hope our excitement inspires all of you to support this important community service. National Library Week was April 8th -14th. Ballerina/author Misty Copeland served as honorary chair! Thanks to our dancers, families and audience we were able to donate $1200!
