The Position and the Purpose of the Dancer and Minstrel in the Prophetic – Apostle Elizabeth Hairston McBurrows
This workshop will seek to generate an understanding of the Prophetic as it relates to team ministry.
I. The Dancer must understand that the gift of prophecy must be displayed in the music selected in order for the dancer to move forward in movement that surpasses their comfort zone which will set an atmosphere for the prophetic sound to be released in the region.
II. The Minstrel should first of all be more than a musician. The Minstrel should flow prophetically, even prior to touching a keyboard, so that when the Minstrel plays he/she will have an ear to hear the new song that is destined to be released in a region.
SWAP – Pastor Kevin Capers
Soaking Worship and Prayer: Swapping the Flesh for the Spirit. I want to encourage people to bring their mats, sleeping bags, pillows, or blankets, so that they can rest in His presence.
Prophecy Dance – Theory and Movement Dr. A’Renee Cooper
This class is for the seasoned dancer who is able to translate the scriptures into movement. Using the prophetic and the arts to demonstrate what the Spirit is saying to the church, we will discuss music selection, spoken word, preaching, and props.
Ministry Garments & Musicology – Yvonne W. Coston & Cathy White
“The cloths of service, to do service in the holy place, the holy garments for Aaron the priest, and the garments of his sons, to minister in the priest’s office.” (Exodus 35:19, KJV)
This segment is designed to enhance your knowledge of ministry garment presentation and to help you gain an even higher understanding of the sacredness of garments of praise. We will explore methods of expanding ministry garments and the selection of colors to help “set the atmosphere.”
Additionally, we will engage in discussions on musicology – selecting music that conveys the message in movement while prayerfully choosing lyrics that effectively speak to worship order, theme, or type of service. Selection of Music and Garments are necessary and united aspects of ministry presentation. We will demonstrate the importance of how both of these spiritual ingredients in dance ministry work together in One Divine Order. “Oh, worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness! Dance [tremble] before Him, all the earth.” (Psalm 96:9, NKJV)
Dance in World Cultures – Min. Julinda D. Lewis
For the past 8 years, Prof. Lewis (B.S., M.A. Dance and Dance Education, NYU) has taught a course in Dance in World Cultures for the dance and choreography majors at Virginia Commonwealth University, and for the past two years has traveled to Kenya as part of a movement ministry team. This session will provide an overview of how dance reflects the cultural, religious, and philosophical values of its culture. The cultures studied may include – but are not limited to – the cultures peoples. As ministers of dance whose ministries extend outside the four walls, we need to develop an awareness of how the dance of a culture adapts to or resists change as the culture evolves due to political, economic, social, and geographic changes and be able to consider the implications of dance in a world culture and to discuss or write about their ideas and observations using informal and formal methods, as appropriate.

Hip Hop and Dancehall with Wendell Bullen
In my hip hop class I love sharing my knowledge of the style and making sure everyone has fun trying out hip-hop the way that I interpret the dance steps and the music. I also let people find themselves in my movement. I love doing all of this with high energy and charisma.
In my dancehall class I try my best to help people to have a better understanding of the actual dance style and not base their theory on just the way people judge dancehall. I try my best to give people a chance to express themselves and become comfortable while being uncomfortable – and I want them to see why I love the style and how much freedom it brings in dance.
Lyrical with Dacia Carter
This class will be fun and full of movement with a fusion of ballet, jazz, and contemporary dance styles.

Testimonials From Dancing Preachers.
Dearest Minister Sabrina McKenzie, The conference did accomplish all that the Lord had planned. I have never experienced any dance conference on or with that level of teaching, preaching, order, sensitivity to the move of the Holy Spirit nor that level of anointing for the services held at the Hilton. I had the pleasure of meeting persons from throughout the world who I may not have had the pleasure of meeting otherwise.
“TASH” Natasha House
I just want to send some words of encouragement your way. I want to send the kind of encouragement that lifts your spirits and brightens your day. I pray that the Lord strengthen you physically, restore you emotionally and revitalize you spiritually from the “birthing process” that had to take place in order to deliver such a wonderfully successful Dancing Preachers Heaven on Earth conference.
I plea the blood of Jesus over your life, your home, your family and your car that the protection of God would travel with you; I bind accident demons and devils that would seek to orchestrate your demise; I speak health into your body and command that everything in your physical man line up with the very word of God!!!!
May the very presence of God envelope you and may the blessings of God violently track you down and May His countenance shine upon you! I can’t even begin to thank you for the BIG part you played in such a small person’s life I know my place in the Kingdom now I’m taking my rightful place as a Gate Keeper; I’m laying hands on my husband and knowing I have power in my marriage.
God has done such a purifying sanctification in me that everything is NEW. You will never know just how many lives you’ve touched, altered, delivered and set free through your ministry. Not even seeing you dance, but watching you operate in such humility and such power and strength has ministered to my very soul.
Just know that I love you from afar and I will NEVER forget September 7-12. Myself and many others are patiently awaiting the info we need to order tapes and videos but until then – I’m praying that you get some well deserved rest and some much needed time with your family “away from it all” Lord willing, I will see you in the Bahamas – with the rest of my team whom I’ve mad godly jealous that they didn’t press their way to Atlanta this year.
It is clear that I was the “Chosen One” for the impartation. What I received far exceeds any dollar amount ~ I’m on FIRE for God like never before! Love you so much,
WOW! I am amazed. I attended the conference this pst weekend and I came back a changed woman of God. I learned so much about myself and about the ministry of dance. I thank you and the speakers from the bottom of my heart, I was blessed this weekend! If you are going to order more shirts and/or bags, >please e-mail me due to the fact that I tried to purchase them and you had sold out. GLORY BE TO GOD! I thank you for making this possible, may GOD bless you today and always!
Temetrece Anointed Arts New Life Ministries
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed the conference. As a dance leader myself, I truly needed all that was offered and my cup and saucer is still running over. I have been reviewing my notes and scriptures given daily!. As soon as I returned home (Valdosta, Ga). The devil was waiting on me. I had opposition like never before every where I turned. I manage 2 Curves fitness clubs and I had a possessed employee attack myself and the rest of the staff with witchcraft, I had a manipulative Absalom at the other location and then my Absalom/Saul individual on the ministry team just came at me with a venegeance! I’m now equipped to get some order in the ministry.
Myself and the 2 dancers that attended with me are pressing forward. And though offenses, persecution, and opposition have come boldly at us we are yet standing strong. I wish I had your message for leaders and directors on tape because that msg blessed me like you wouldn’t believe! I know I told you this in person but it did. Thank you for being so humble, touchable, and honest. My prayers are with you and your family. I can’t wait to see you again.
Thank you, Thank you and Thank you again. The word of God says give honor where honor is due. Thank you for your obedience to follow the leading of the Holy Sprit and host the Dancing Preachers conference. It was truly a blessing to be able to be in the midst of worshipers and experience God’s presence. At home I am always in ministry mode and pouring out. I was past due for a refill. Even Jesus had to pull away from the crowds and spend time with His father. Dancing preachers was my pulling away time.
My prayer life has been restored and my love for the word. I have been in a wilderness season for sometime now.
I praise God because the conference is just what I needed to give me a charge to forge ahead in ministry. There is no one thing that stood out for me at the conference. But I think that the divine deposit that I received was evidence of God’s greatness.
The teaching was great. The Nightly services were wonderful. Not only did I receive a charge from the Lord but my entire team did. Our ministry on the Sunday was at another level. Your labor has not been in vain. Thank you for the travail and giving birth to the vision that birth others into their destiny. I pray that God will take you to deeper depth and higher heights in Him. I look forward to the next one.
Good morning Sabrina,
I just wanted to commend you on an excellent job you and your committee did in putting on a conference of that magnitude this weekend. I was thoroughly blessed, empowered and even changed in certain areas. The conference ministered to the whole man, Sprit, soul and body. So I just wanted to thank you for allowing the Lord to guide you and lead you in even choosing the topics. So I bless you and I know that God is going to continue to increase you more and more. Thank you again.
Dear Sabrina, Just wanted you to know what a blessing the conference was to me. I truly received impartation from all of the classes that I attended. I have a greater desire to be the dance leader at our church that the Lord have called me to be. So many unanswered questioned were answered at the conference. God truly has anointed you for such a time as this and I’m looking forward to the next conference.
Geneva p.s. You have a beautiful baby daughter!!!
You Sister Sabrina returned true worship unto the Lord. And finally, at the cathedral two women came into room 116 and asked if they could anoint my feet and pray for me. I agreed. I proceeded out with the other dancers. As I stepped unto the pulpit in the rear the Lord said, “Tonight the fire has two purposes, one to purify and the other to consume. I allowed you to cross the pulpit when no one was on it to purify it, if you cross it again I will consume anything that is not like me.” The Lord said that He would grant grace if I would not run like a consuming fire but stand still and pray. For 5 (2005) means grace and we are in the dispensation of grace. So I stood with the feet that an angel of the house anointed, hidden off to the side for He said they don’t see the fire which is behind them. Yes, I told Him that others would take on the spirit of offence because I did not move. The Lord’s response was “I was not invited to the market place, will you too not fear me.” Sis. Sabrina I fear the Lord and am held to a strict obedience.
Thank you for the sacrifices and the hard work that you and the staff put together to make Dancing Preachers a success. I came to the conference alone, and I never felt like I was alone. I met many people who want to serve God. I am so ever grateful for the experiences, it was anointed and powerful. Since then, I was propelled into my destiny since attending the conference. Thanks again for a jump start.
Yours in Christ, Wanda Mack
Dear Sabrina, how can we thank the Lord for your obedience??? I trust that all is well with you and your family. It was an amazing experience being there at the Dancing Preachers conference. I’m sure people are telling you that we wanted more time for many of the classes! Your class, for example, could have been an all-day long seminar for me and many of us decided that we’d be in the Bahama’s next June for sure! We’re planning now. ! Love and much appreciation!
Your sis, Stine McDonald
Hi Miss Sabrina, I again want to thank you for allowing God to use you to put on a AWESOME conference that God definitely met us at and revealed so much (I’m sure there were things deposited in my spirit that I still have no clue about). It was truly amazing and I am so glad I was blessed enough to be apart of it. It was an awesome pleasure meeting you and I am still > digesting the word from the Lord
First thank you for the scholarship for my daughter, she enjoyed herself. Next I had a wonderful time. The Lord had some things for me to see, hear and experience while I was there. I really was adminished and convicted in some areas of my dance ministry. Thank you and your team for putting the Conference together and having a heart for God’s people and the dance. I really admire you, and what your ministry stands for. You are a new mother, leader and minister of the >> gospel. That is a lot of responsibility and you wear it well!
Peace and Blessings Everybody,
I want to tremendously thank everyone that financially supported my journey to Atlanta. Thank you for being obedient to God in your giving. It was truly a miracle and it was definitely meant for me to have been there. I have been transformed and my ministry is at a higher, deeper level because of what I experienced last week.
It is too much to tell, but just know that God showed up, and experience the difference and the impact that Dance Theatre of the Gospel will have because of it. Dance Theatre of the Gospel will be ministering this Friday and Saturday night at Dance Mission in SF. Both shows begin at 8 pm. I love you all
I want to express my sincere gratitude for the conference that you held. It brought about a transformation in my life and the ministry given to me. I bless God for your service to the Kingdom and I will keep you in my prayers.
