Neshamah (Hebrew) - Breath - blast, that breathes, inspiration, soul, spirit - From nasham; a puff, i.e. Wind, vital breath, divine inspiration, intellect. Or blast, (that) breath(-eth), inspiration, soul, spirit. (Strong’s)
The Breath of Life - A thing that someone needs or depends on (dictionary)
Then the LORD God formed a man from the dust of the ground and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life, and the man became a living being. Genesis 2:7 NIV
The Spirit of God has made me; the breath of the Almighty gives me life. Job 33:4 NIV
In this new season, let us explore in greater depth the artistic ways we can glorify the Lord, as He breathes new life into us!
With 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!

This is going to be an awesome time of learning and ministry! Come, receive ministry, get renewed and refreshed and let God transform your life!
**Please note: You do not have to have any dance experience to participate in either the conference or the presentation dance. When you check out, please, though help me to know which part you prefer to do (Dance part, Flag part, or Billow Cloth part). Depending on the number of people, I can not guarantee you will have that part. But the selection process only helps me to know who has what experience and what preferences. It also helps me to 'see' the dance as I prepare. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. The Lord has already given me most of the choreography to an awesome, anointed song and it is going to be so powerful!! I can not wait to teach and see it!!
Join us for the worship service at the host church where, if we will have accomplished learning the entire dance during the conference, we can present it during service. Otherwise, join us for dancing during praise and worship!
If you will still be in town, we can fellowship together after church.
Dancing For Him School Alumni Reunion Activities (at conclusion of the conference), but all are welcome. This will be posted soon in 'other information' in the Local, Travel, Information area.
*The Level 3/4 students from the online school may be conducting some of the ministry activations
and other classes as part of their hands on experience for the online school.
The Friday evening concert is always a highlight of a conference. It is where you get to present a dance that you will have already done at your church and share your gift with the other participants.
Space for participation in the Friday evening concert is limited to the first 12 individuals, groups, or teams who desire to be in it and are fully registered.

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 two very long days 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.
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. If for some unforeseen reason, regardless of the situation, you will be unable to attend, your tax-deductible registration will be considered a love gift/donation to further the work of God through Dancing For Him Ministries. Thank you. NO one-day rates available. We encourage you to attend the entire retreat or as much of the conference as you are able.
Thank you for your participation. May the blessings of the Lord overtake you...
We'll see you soon!!
