“Being a part of Company has challenged me and helped me grow both in my dance skill and walk with God. Not only that, but this team has become more than just a group of people I see a few times a year. It has become a daily support system; an encouraging and loving group of friends who share a passion to spread the gospel through dance.”Olivia Renkel
“This company has brought me a chance to share Christ’s love through dance and performance once again. I have been given the opportunity to learn, to grow, to be stretched, and to be filled, physically and spiritually. This group of people has become my family, my tribe!”Evangeline Miller
