CHANGEMENT - This is a French ballet term that means "change." In this case, this word means to change while jumping, and while in the air, the feet change from one position to another.
In this season, we have been through so much change in our lives. Everything is changing, becoming different and moving in different directions. But God never changes. In a world full of uncertainty and instability, our God is a solid rock on which we can stand.
Hebrews 13:8 "Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever!"
One of the most important concepts we can do in choreography is "change." The purpose of doing a choreographed dance and learning techniques, is so we may make our dance presentations more interesting. With that, there is more opportunity to captivate the viewer's attention so that the gospel message coming forth will bypass the mind and penetrate the heart. Thus, this fosters change in the viewer.
In this new season, let us "Changement" as we explore in greater depth of creative ways to glorify the Lord. We can receive ministry through presentations, and learn some dance technique. Come, let us worship artistically, move to new choreographic ideas and become inspired with 'change.'
With Pastor Lynn M Hayden
With over 50 years of dance experience behind her, Lynn has dedicated all her ballet, modern, jazz, and choreography technique to the Lord for His glory. She has performed with the Towson State University Dance Company, and the Ballet Theatre of Annapolis and and has been ministering, for the Lord, through dance, since 1986. Lynn is a well-known author of eight books on worship and prophetic dance, and producer of more than thirty worship dance DVD’s and administrates a successful on line ministry dance school. Lynn assisted the choreographer and danced in Integrity Hosanna’s music video “Sing Out” with Ron Kenoly; and has traveled, teaching Dancing For Him Conferences for over 20 years. 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. Many lives have been touched and changed by this unique, ministry. It is much more then just learning how to dance. Lynn utilizes the Prophetic arts as a means by which to minister the heart of God. Lynn also ministers in dance directly to the congregation with an anointing that breaks the yoke of bondage, heals and delivers!

Please know that the day before the event we will be setting up and will not be able to answer questions. Also the day of the conference, we will not be able to answer questions (except during lunch breaks). I encourage you to be sure to read all the information way ahead of time. You'll be given more details after you register as well.
The conferences are primarily geared for adults. There will be no children's classes nor child care. Children under 12 are free. However EACH child under 12 must be accompanied by a fully registered, participating, responsible adult (18 or older). The child's parent/guardian must read and sign their waiver form or agree to it by electronic signature. Due to the largely ministerial nature of the conference and a very long day on our feet, we ask that you consider the attention span of your child before registering them. There will be no sideline mothers for any youth. Thank you.
Since this one will be 'safe at home' you are welcome to encourage your whole family to participate with you:)
The amount of registrations, offerings, support, etc., is absolutely non-refundable. Nor may it be applied to another conference. It may be transferred to another person.

Thank you. NO partial-day rates available. We encourage you to attend the entire event or as much of the conference as you are able.
