COURSES, COST AND ENROLLMENT

This continuing education (on demand) course in pageantry is a series of classes (previously done online, but some recorded in HD, edited and expanded) presented in a relaxed, comfortable, follow along style (for any level, no matter what your previous training was). Yet each class has unique nuances. 

They are all taught by Pastor Lynn Hayden in an 'in home setting,' showing that you too, may enjoy participating in learning to move with flags in the comfort of your own home. 

These courses are highly recommended for those who have graduated from the DFH online school, to maintain your license. However, you do not have to be a part of the DFH school to enroll in these continuing education courses. 

With this and the other courses, just having that arsenal of movement resident inside of you will enhance your ability to choreograph or move spontaneously, as Holy Spirit inspires you. More than just taking an in-depth course, it is a wealth of valuable information that will help you grow in your call to minister to, with, for and before the Lord.

STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I am enjoying your modern class so much. You have excellent pacing and very clear instruction. Your creativity is wonderful. I would think anyone could join with little, a lot or no dance background. I am older and danced in my earlier years and love the challenge of seeing what I learned years ago in a modern class with Graham technique. I feel such an anointing after the class I savor the time with the Lord. I love the choreography and feel so connected to the Lord with your choice of worship music. Thank you  so much. I feel more confident that aging will never be dull but vibrant and fun. I look forward to the next session. Blessings, Karen P

Pastor Lynn's Modern class has been the highlight of my week. I have developed my choreographic vocabulary to fresh and spirit-filled movement. Each class's strengthening workout has been essential to executing movement with precision and power. The facilitation of well versed dance movements has expanded my communication and clarity as a dancer. Modern with Pastor Lynn is simply more than I could have imagined. I've been truly blessed and already signed up for my next class. Ishmael H. 

I love taking these dance classes with Pastor Lynn!! It has really strengthened me as a dancer physically as well as spiritually! I have taken modern and ballet with her for one year, after a two year hiatus of not being able to dance (due to a leg and arm surgery as well as other health problems).  Now, a year later, I am still with her and feel better than ever! She has such a sweet anointing from God over her classes and her friendly, easy-going personality makes every class so fun and challenging. I highly recommend taking these classes if you want to gain strength, better dance technique, get closer to God and get in better shape! -Amy H.

Where do I begin? This class has been a God send!  Pastor Lynn provides a solid foundation in technique and the mechanics of dancing. Certainly, it is worthwhile investment, as you learn as well as strengthen your mind and body. Jump right in and you will never be the same! Vivienne - NY
