GOD SO LOVED... CHOREOGRAPHY WORKSHOP 
lakeland, fl  MARCH 7, 2020

Divine Choreography Workshop

    John 3:16: For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. NIV

    In this new season, let us explore in greater depth the artistic ways we can glorify the Lord, as we learn some powerful worship dance ministry choreography!


    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 online 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 produce their own videos and 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!

    • Would you love to learn some fresh movement and choreography ideas?
    • Would you love to learn nearly an entire reproducible dance, that you may use (all or part) in your own choreography?
    • Would you like to increase your movement vocabulary, with some creative ideas?
    • Would you like to see how to incorporate ministry into your presentations?

    Then this workshop is for you!

    This will be an intense workshop experience, where we will cover/learn different sections of a dance that would normally take about 5 weeks of rehearsal, but we will do it all in one day!

    Don't worry... No experience necessary:)

    EXAMPLE: Video of the last dance that was learned in a very short period of time, during the graduation conference. 

      Subjects Covered 

      We will learn nearly an entire dance done to a powerful song that depicts how deeply God loves us. This type of song/choreography may be used for any occasion (even Christmas and Resurrection Sunday) because of its theme where God loves us so much that nothing would keep Him away from us. 

      Basic Modern Dance Warm Up
      Group Choreography
      Solo Part
      Possibly Small Flag Part (Red/Blood and Fire), Depending on time.
      After learning a section, we will be video taping Pastor Lynn's teaching and possibly the group's demonstration of it. 

      Also note: Although we encourage entire teams to come, individuals are more than welcome to come by themselves. So, you do not have to be a member of a team to attend.

Please prayerfully consider an additional love offering upon check out, especially if you'll be staying for lunch. This will help offset costs, especially since the registration is so low for the workshop. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.

      HOTELS

      Google Hotels Near LA Fitness

      La Quinta is almost directly across the street from LA Fitness. While close, and while it may be OK to stay there,  I would not recommend walking to or from there. 

      TOWN PLACE SUITES - This is a really, really nice hotel across the main road from LA Fitness. I stayed there once. It was one of the nicest hotels I've ever been in with a breakfast, kitchenette in the room, large rooms, newer, etc. But not the cheapest either. Good for sharing a room, though (splitting your cost).

      Comfort Inn and Suites is also across the main road and up a couple minutes. I stayed there in 1996 and it was good. So, it is older, but probably has had updates. 

      I would not stay in the Howard Johnson's, which is also close. I heard bad reviews. It does look like they just recently remodeled, though.

      I stayed at the Motel 6 once during the revival in the  2000's. No frills and very inexpensive. I was fine, but in later years, I found out that there is often some illegal activity that goes on there. So... maybe that's a no:))

      You might try a Bed and Breakfast. There are some around that you could share with several others:  Air B&B

      Travel sites that may help...

      TRIVAGO

      There are other hotels in Lakeland, not too far. 

      Hope that helps:)

      RESTAURANTS

      There are several restaurants in the same plaza as LA Fitness (around the corner and at the other end). Panera Bread, Starbucks, Panda Express (I think), Maybe a Taco place; Olive Garden; Moes; 

      Across the street, but always crowded is Chick Filet; Chillies; I think I saw a Chipoltle; and some others around.

      We only have an hour for lunch, so I would choose something that serves quickly. Or maybe try to eat a large early lunch before signing in (if not doing the Zumba class).  No food or drink allowed in the club (except water in tightly fitted lid). 

      OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION

      The fitness center has a very strict policy about not taking photos or video of any of their members. You are welcome to take photos of your group, of me or the whole group dancing, etc. But please be careful to not get a club member in the picture. Thank you. 

      Also, no video taping allowed at all. Thank you for honoring this. 

      Finally, another stipulation to using the club's aerobics room is that we need to allow any members to come in and do their squats or lunges or stretch or whatever. The room is HUGE. So, I don't think we will interfere with each other. But we may need to keep an eye out for people who come in the room if we are video taping my teaching:) Thanks. 

      SCHOOL - This workshop will count toward your school requirement for attending a DFH event, should you be enrolling or have enrolled in the 2020 class.

      What To Wear/Bring

      Because we may possibly have you on video, please try to wear a black base with a colorful top that is long enough to cover your rear end with arms lifted high overhead. Thank you.

      Wear comfortable, modest clothing for ease of movement. Comfortable shoes for the long day on our feet (like Keds, fitness tennis shoes or jazz sneakers). I will not be able to control the AC. So, please bring a light jacket or sweater for possibly cool air conditioning. And/Or bring/wear cool modest clothing in case it is warm. 

      Water bottle with tight fitting lid (no other food or beverage allowed in the fitness center).

      Flags (particularly red or fire). Not necessary, but if you have them and some extra for those who don't, that would be great.

      Absolutely NO video taping allowed during the conference. However, taking photographs is encouraged.

      PRODUCTS

      Unfortunately, except for a tub of exquisite flags and billows, the DFH product table will not be there with the products for sale.

      HOWEVER, after you register, in your welcome letter, will be a coupon code for product discounts. So you may purchase at the same discount that I would have had there at the conference, but ahead of time. You may use the code from the time you register until March 1st.

      There will also be opportunity to purchase the digital download versions of the Divine Choreography book, DVD and Dance Composition DVD, upon check out at an even deeper discount!

      There will be, however, some beautiful silk flags and different kinds of billows there for sale. So you'll want to bring MC, Visa, AM Express, Discover cards, cash or checks with you to the aerobics room. You'll want to take advantage of the opportunity.

      If you come to the Sunday service, ALL the products will be available there for sale (including flags, billows, books, DVDs, etc.).
