Announcing – Army On Its Toes
Big Steps for an Army On Its Knees… and Toes!
We are proud to announce the upcoming commissioning and debut performance of the very first USE Territorial dance team! Lead by Kathryn Higgins (Dance Ministries Specialist/Kroc Center Creative Arts Liaison) and supported by the Territorial Arts Ministries Bureau, The Army On Its Toes Dance Company is comprised of dancers from the far reaches of our Territory.
According to The Salvation Army’s USA East attendance statistics, dance is the fastest growing expression of worship. With a total attendance of 5675 in 2010 and growing to 23,546 in 2015, dance has more than quadrupled in participants the last five years! It is time to embrace this movement fully and support the Territory by providing an example of trained, focused dancers to inspire and motivate the Army’s young dancers. Their mission is to create quality works of choreography, spreading The Word and inspiring action through the power of dance.
The Army On Its Toes Dance Company, (or simply Dance Company) will debut at Commissioning 2016 in Hershey on Sunday, June 12th. Come out to the 7pm meeting where Commissioners Swanson will give their official blessing. Upcoming engagements include the Territorial Young Adult Retreat in October, and OOB pier ministry 2017!
Psalm 149:3 Let them praise his name with dancing and make music to him with the timbrel and harp.
