Are you passionate about dance?
Come and train with us in the Dance Internship!
Daily classes in ballet, jazz, modern and choreography.
Next available dates:
// June – August 2020 //
Three months of urban culture, discipleship training, challenging teaching and following Gods voice in the city. Using choreography to intercede for the city we’re in – be a light on the streets of Brussels. Prepare to perform in different European cities – anything between a spontaneous street corner performance and a set up stage..
The Dance Internship forms part of ‘Home in the Marsh’ dance team at YWAM Brussels.
At ‘Home in the Marsh’ we aim to create choreography with a story that is relevant in the society we form part of.
We long to touch on topics like poverty, emptiness, depression and other tendencies of our culture. Dance being more than something that looks beautiful or entertaining, we know it is a powerful tool to reach our generation and to wake people up to a revolution..
The Dance internship is a three month course for students who might have or not have done a ‘DTS’ with YWAM.
A minimum of 12 hours per week will be focused on dance training: Getting stronger physically (work out) and training in different styles of dance – Ballet, Modern/Contemporary, Jazz and a flavour of circus style!
We teach on the importance of dance in the kingdom of God, we talk about dance and the prophetic, and about how to use dance as a tool to transform society wherever we are called.
We practice using movement and dance in worship, prayer and personal quiet times. We create together and go out for evangelism using dance performance.
Some other key teachings we will go through are on topics like identity and holiness. We will learn about nutrition, dance improvisation and choreography.
We live in community and serve each other.
We do life together and receive from God and from each other, allowing Him to equip us for our calling. There’s a strong emphasis on personal devotion and discipleship.
This course is specifically for trained dancers: an intermediate level of dance is required to enroll in this course.
