Lynn Hayden is a well-known author of eight books on praise dance, and producer of over thirty-one worship dance, praise dance and prophetic dance instructional videos.
As founder of DFH, Lynn (approaching nearly 50 years of dance experience) has dedicated all her ballet, modern, jazz, and choreography technique to the Lord for His glory. Lynn performed with the Towson State University Dance Company, and the Ballet Theatre of Annapolis (now known as the Ballet Theatre of Maryland) and has been ministering, for the Lord, through dance, since 1986.
Lynn orchestrates, ministers and instructs during worship dance workshops, praise dance conferences, retreats and weeklong intensives around the world. During these Spirit inspired events, there is an activation and impartation of an unparalleled style of prophetic dance.
As founder, director and administrator for the Dancing For Him Online School, Lynn is a gifted leader of leaders. Her graduates have grown substantially in their call to dance for the Lord. Many people mentored by Lynn, over the years, have successfully gone on to have their own dance teams, hold their own workshops, choreograph beautiful ministry dances and even write their own books. The school has enabled Lynn to perpetuate her legacy of transforming hearts and changing lives, through ministry dance.
As a professional dancer and choreographer, Lynn assisted the choreographer and danced in Integrity Hosanna's music video "Sing Out" with Ron Kenoly; choreographed a piece for Dawn Branch's production called, "Eden." She has produced many creative works over the years, most of which are presented in her videos.
Unity in the body of Christ was strengthened throughout the years as Lynn choreographed and coordinated dances for inter-denominational, multi-city events and marches, consulted local dance teams and leaders, has held weekly Worship Through Movement dance classes, and Ballet For Him ballet classes and was on the teaching staff at Christian International's Arts Conferences. Lynn has a teaching style that is challenging for all skill levels, and inspires the participants of her praise dance conferences, classes, books, and worship dance videos to new levels of worship and gospel presentation through the dance.
There is a unique ability to lead large groups and congregations in corporate worship dance and presentations. Lynn also ministers in dance directly to the congregation with an anointing that breaks the yoke of bondage, heals and delivers!
Lynn is ordained by and has ministerial covering through The Covenant Center with Pastors Richard and Rebecca Maisenbacher
